In this example about overlays, we’re asking if you use an overlay on your website. We’re asking about this this as there's been a significant rise in the use of overlays and the litigation against those using such technologies. This in turn has made those who use them, more of a target.

When viewing the Priority action, you'll find details about what we're asking, with further details that you also might find useful. For this action, you just need to click on the relevant option and confirm. There is also the option to assign the action to somebody else to deal with. All you need to do is click the 'Assign' button, and enter their email address. They will then be notified that there is an action that you would like them to deal with.
