California’s Attorney General Kamala D. Harris has issued a new document that includes recent changes to the state’s privacy law and follows an earlier report on cyber-attacks and data breaches.

The new guide, ‘Making Your Privacy Practices Public,’ gives businesses information to provide a privacy policy for consumers, she explained in a statement.

‘This guide is a tool for businesses to create clear and transparent privacy policies that reflect the state’s privacy laws and allow consumers to make informed decisions,’ Harris explained in the statement.

The privacy guide includes such recommendations as:

Prominently label the section of a policy on online tracking, such as: ‘California Do Not Track Disclosures.’ Say how a business responds to a browser’s Do Not Track signal. If third parties collect personally identifiable information, say that in the privacy policy. Say what personally identifiable information a business collects from users, how it is used and how long it will be retained. “
