Privacy policies can be a little daunting to write and, quite honestly, they can be a bit of a pain to keep up to date. But they are important. They are a way for you to communicate to your customers what data you’re collecting, how you’re using it, and how they can access or change it.
It also includes ways that users can contact your company and normally includes the name of the contact person, an email address, a phone number, and a mailing address.
Privacy laws exist to protect the personal information of individuals online.
Depending on where in the world your website visitors are located, there are other privacy laws that may be applicable:
- Canada - Quebec's Act Respecting the Protection of Personal Information in the Private Sector
- European Union - GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
- Australia - Australian Privacy Act of 1988
- United Kingdom - Data Protection Act (DPA)
- United States - CalOPPA (The California Online Privacy Protection Act)
- United States - CCPA (The California Consumer Privacy Act)
- United States - DOPPA (Delaware Online Privacy Protection Act)
- United States - Nevada's Revised Statutes Chapter 603A
and more are being added. Six new laws were added in 2022 alone.
These laws were created to protect the consumers of those states and countries, and these laws can apply to businesses outside of those states and countries. They may apply to you if you do business there, collect the personal information of residents of those states or countries, or offer goods or services there.
What are privacy laws and why does your business need to be concerned?
Privacy laws exist to protect the personal information of individuals online. Privacy laws start applying as soon as a website asks for a name and an email on a contact form. Once you start collecting information about your website’s visitors, it is considered personal data.
What can you do to get protected?
We will create your policies, install them on your website, and provide automatic updates to your website policies when the laws change (as well as notify you when changes are coming).
What Does It Cost?
Each subsequent year the service renews at $175.00 (plus tax).
