The ease of reading, the lack of plain English, is so bad in Wizards of the Coast’s documentation that VPNOverview suggests readers would need a college student level of education to understand. Wizards’ policy covers gamers from 13 and up.
There’s also concern around Wizards of the Coast’s video policies, as the company does not say how long any video data is kept.
If that sounds bad for Wizards, it puts them 58 out of 100 for the worst privacy policies to read.

VPNOverview told Geek Native;
VPNOverview has some general observations from their research in general.
- 60%+ of the policies studied needed a college-graduate reading level or higher, and this is due to the amount and format of information.
- The average U.K. reading level is 9, and the average U.S. reading age is 14. Most of these policies are difficult for the typical person to understand.
- Most privacy policies are imprecise, making it difficult to know what will happen to your data. The vague language might protect a firm from legal action if data is disclosed.
- Many companies gather data that seems irrelevant. Spotify collects voice data, for example.
