As the title says, I need a short form for the phrase:

"Indicaciones sobre la protección de datos"

It shouldn't be longer than 3-4 words. Does anybody have an idea?

What would you use in English? – Walter Mitty May 25 '13 at 11:41
It is for a website. The short form should appear in a navigation. Since the space is pretty small I wanted to have such a short form! I am satisfied with all your suggestions! For English I use Privacy Policy. – Tonsenson May 27 '13 at 19:31

Without more context, it's going to be hard, but you could try

  • Indicaciones sobre la privacidad

  • Política de privacidad

Facebook has a page, "política de privacidad" – Walter Mitty May 28 '13 at 0:41

I agree with Alexis that more context would help ... but if it's for something like a sub-heading in a document, you could just drop the "Indicaciones sobre la" and go with:

Protección de datos

I also like Alexis' "Política de privacidad", but "privacy" is a more general concept than "data protection", so it might not be applicable to your case.

"Protección de datos" would be the closest way to summarize what you are trying to expose. It's brief and easy to understand.

Cómo proteger sus datos.

I do subtitling for a living, and finding ways of saying it all with the least amount of characters is a must in this trade.
