Brett Stoppel replied to Sara Langenberg's discussion In site redesign, OK to add designer after building wireframe? in the group Design
"We did just that. Though we treat our wireframes as a guide and not as a set in stone layout. It can save some money, but it really helps the group responsible for the web site to discuss what content is needed before the design starts."

Updating our Privacy Policy

Hello,We are looking to update our privacy policy on our website to better reflect the activities of our marketing folks and their partners. This would include things like retargeting and the potential personalization of our CRM. I was wondering if other universities have updated their privacy policies recently and could share how they crafted it? I'd like to have some sort of template before meeting with our lawyer to get their sign off.Thanks!See More
