Privacy Policies Update

by | Jan 12, 2023

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.

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.
