The new California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) which went into effect January 1, 2020 began being enforced on July 1, 2020. You don’t have to operate your business in California for these laws to apply to your business.
Several privacy laws are now in place to protect the Personally Identifiable Information of citizens of certain states with fines that can reach $2,500-$7,500 per website visitor.
If you don’t want to hire a privacy attorney to create and keep your policies up-to-date, we recommend using an auto-updating service called Termageddon.
Termageddon is a comprehensive website policies generator and will update your website policies when privacy laws change, helping you stay compliant and avoid fines and lawsuits. We began using their service earlier this year and have been recommending it to our new website clients since then.
Please review this information with your lawyer and reach out to us with any questions you may have in regards to setting up policies as required for your business.
