PRIVACY POLICIES

Why Your Business Should Be Concerned

Grand Lake Web Designs has partnered with Termageddon, the leading website Privacy Policy Generator.  Over a dozen states have proposed or already are implementing privacy laws to protect the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of their citizens. Each of these laws has unique requirements as well as unique penalties for not complying. Some states are proposing businesses be fined over $5,000 per infringement (per website visitor). Some states are proposing private right of action (meaning citizens of that state can sue businesses anywhere in the US). These laws do not care where the business is located. The laws are only out to protect their citizens.

Privacy Policies

Contact forms ask for a “name” and “email”, which are examples of “Personally Identifiable Information” (PII). Multiple countries and states have enacted privacy laws that impose heavy fines for not having an up-to-date compliant Privacy Policy. Also, over a dozen states have proposed laws that can apply to businesses regardless of their location. Several of these proposed laws will enable its citizens to sue businesses of any size located anywhere. It’s simple: if you ask for PII via a contact form, and you want to avoid fines and lawsuits, provide a compliant Privacy Policy.

Terms & Conditions

Terms & Conditions limit a company’s liability. If a user clicks a link to a 3rd party site that is hacked, and then that user gets hacked, a Terms & Conditions helps prevent that business from being sued.

Disclaimers

Websites providing information that could be considered health advice or legal advice (law firms!), are also good reasons to have a Disclaimer. A lot of affiliate programs will require you to have a disclaimer, and consumers want to know when you’re getting paid for links you put on your website.

Cookie Policies

A Cookie Policy further explains what cookies you use on your website and for what purposes. If you need to comply with privacy laws such as GDPR, UK DPA, PIPEDA, and/or CCPA (assuming your website uses cookies, as most do), you are required to provide these details so website visitors can understand what cookies you are placing on their browser.

Cookie Consent Banners

Whether you call it a cookie consent banner or wall, privacy tool or popup, notification or management platform, having one on your website can help you achieve compliance with privacy laws like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the ePrivacy Directive in Europe and the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA).
