Is numeration in policies obligatory or optional?

I create different policies as per GDPR for internal use and have an idea to skip the numeration because of redundancy, can I do this?

I know, it is convenient as a reference to the policy sections, but as for me, numeration complicates readability.

  • Hello Mary...I am not sure if this is the correct place to ask about this. As you say, this is for GDPR internal use, so I would think there must be some protocol to follow. – Cascabel Jul 10 '18 at 16:40
  • I'm afraid this has absolutely nothing to do with the English language: the question could apply to documents written in any language. I doubt there is a Stack Exchange site where this question is actually on-topic. The answer is that it's purely a matter of style. If you need to refer to paragraphs, make it easy; if you don't need to refer to individual paragraphs, you don't need to number them. Some companies may have a policy on how to write such documents: follow that. – Andrew Leach Jul 10 '18 at 19:17
