For consistency the link '[Site Abbreviation] Privacy Policy' must be placed at the bottom of the first column of the local footer. This link must point to a page on the site which explains the privacy policy extension. Any privacy policy extension must link to and must not weaken the protections described by the UNL privacy policy.

Example Extension

The following is an example extension for Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting.

<h1>[Site Name] Online Privacy Policy Extension</h1>
