The last place in the ranking was taken by MakeUp with a score of 22.5%.
The analysis of websites and applications of private Ukrainian companies was conducted as part of the large-scale project "Mainstreaming Privacy in the Digital Sphere in Ukraine". To evaluate each category, 3 to 6 questions were formed. Accordingly, during the analysis, websites and applications could receive from 0 to 1 point for answering a question.
Experts independently studied all services, analyzed how the company interacts with the user and sent private requests to identify problems. In addition, the study contains expert advice on how to improve privacy policies and protect users' personal data.
We remind you! The presence of Ukrainian companies outside the country has increased significantly during the war. Thus, Gradus Research asked Ukrainians how they feel about Ukrainian businesses entering foreign markets. Read more about the survey results in our previous article.
