I was looking at refurbished boxes on Tech Depot (a subsidiary of Office Depot that I like a lot). One of the boxes I was looking at struck me as a little too expensive. And so, I clicked on the "Tell me when this price drops" link (in itself, a wonderful feature-- if they drop the price by enough, they'll automatically let me know).
Up came a very simple page with a single form which requested three things: my target price, my e-mail address, and the date when the request should expire.
Tech Depot will in no way use your email address for anything other than the intended purposes herein.
That's perfect. One sentence, complete assurance.
The question is: why do so many other websites not get it?
