Why You Need A Website Privacy Policy

Website Privacy Policies

In country, region or state privacy laws exist that require certain websites to have a Privacy Policy. It is a legal requirement that you should take into serious consideration as there are implications for your business and your website.

What Is A Privacy Policy?

A Privacy Policy is a statement provided on a website that explains how you collect, use, and disclose personally identifiable information (PII). Any website that has as little as a contact form is collecting Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and should have a Privacy Policy in place.

Why Are Website Privacy Policies Important?

Most jurisdictions – locally, nationally and internationally have privacy laws in place to protect the Personally Identifiable Information of their citizens e.g.

  • EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • EU ePrivacy Directive
  • The UK Data Protection Act 2018
  • California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
  • California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)
  • Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act of Canada (PIPEDA)

Note: The United States does not have an all encompassing national privacy law though there are a number of sector and state specific privacy and data security laws at the federal level. Additional privacy laws are in place at local level.

Each jurisdiction levies fines for data breaches and non compliance –  in some US states fines can reach $2,500-$7,500 per website visitor.

Increasingly, more American states are proposing their own privacy laws, each having their own unique requirements and penalties for noncompliance. Some of these bills would enable citizens to sue businesses for simply having a contact form without an updated Privacy Policy! Several states highlight that businesses of any size and at any location will have to comply or may face fines or lawsuits.

How To Stay Compliant And Protected

With more and more privacy laws on the horizon, we advise all of our clients to;

  1. Have a Privacy Policy in place
  2. Have a strategy to keep all your policies up to date with newly required disclosures

An up to date Privacy Policy can help you avoid significant privacy-related fines and lawsuits. It also wins trust and confidence from new and existing clients who visit your website.
