It outlines that you're most likely identifiable. You're definitely tracked, the information is kept forever even though the people keeping the data probably can't find it any more, and as soon as the government asks for it, the information is given up.
In other words, privacy be damned. You're not protected at all.
I don't know if the privacy statement is legal or not, but it's definitely shorter than some, and it doesn't make any bones about whether you're safe browsing a site. It's also honest about whether you had choices:
(Hey, Did somebody hold a gun to your head and force you to visit this site? No, they did not. Did you run into a pay wall on the home page demanding your Visa number? No, you did not. You think we just give all this stuff away because we’re nice guys? Bet you also think every roomful of manure has a pony buried inside.)
Funny, because I almost didn't read that last paragraph, having stopped after paragraph five.
It's interesting, I wonder what a lawyer would think of it? And at least it's honest, right?
