GDPR, PIPEDA and USA Privacy Laws, What Businesses Need to Know 

There are still many businesses out there that do not have a privacy policy on their website. For those that do have one, do you know what it says (if a website designer added one for you, have you reviewed it?) or what it actually means, as well as what it means to you and your business?

A data privacy policy is a legal document that lives on your website and details all the ways in which a website visitors' personal data may be used. It needs to explain how your website collects data, what data you collect, and what you plan to do with that data.

In addition to living on your website, your data privacy policy also should be easily accessible to website visitors from any page they visit. That's why you often see it in the footer of every page on a website.

There are a number of laws that require data privacy policies. The legal landscape around privacy is constantly evolving, and more and more states in the US are adding new privacy laws every year.
