§ 146a.3. Examples and safe harbor.
(a) Compliance. If a licensee uses an example, sample clause or Federal model privacy form, the licensee shall be considered compliant with a corresponding requirement of this chapter to the extent applicable. Licensees may rely on the Federal model privacy form used in accordance with its attached instructions as a safe harbor for compliance with the requirements of this section related to privacy notice content.
(b) Nonexclusive means of compliance. The examples in this chapter, the sample clauses in Appendix A (relating to sample clauses) and the Federal model privacy form are not the exclusive means of compliance with the requirements of this chapter. Licensees may continue to use other types of privacy notices, including notices that contain examples or the sample clauses in Appendix A, or both, provided that the notices accurately describe the licensees privacy practices and otherwise meet the privacy notice content requirements of this chapter.
(c) Sunset of safe harbor for sample clauses in Appendix A. While licensees may continue to use privacy notices that contain examples and the sample clauses in Appendix A, licensees may not rely on the use of privacy notices containing the sample clauses in Appendix A as a safe harbor for compliance with the privacy notice content requirements of this chapter after July 1, 2019.
