Included in the Privacy Guide is the SLT Policy Development Template, which was developed to assist SLT agencies in drafting a privacy policy. The provisions suggested are intended to be incorporated into the agency's general operational policies and day-to-day operations. Each section represents a fundamental component of a comprehensive policy that includes baseline provisions on information collection, information quality, collation and analysis, merging, access and disclosure, redress, security, retention and destruction, accountability and enforcement, and training. Sample language is included for each provision.
