Wunderlich's Three Laws for Web Sites

(with all due reverence to Asimov)

  1. No web site may violate a human being's right to privacy, or through inaction [1], allow a human being's privacy to be violated.
  2. A web site must respect a human being's consent with respect to her personal information, even if it conflicts with the first law.
  3. A web site must protect it's own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the 1st or 2nd law.

[1] Inaction includes not taking responsibility for what ad networks are doing with your users' information.
