Several privacy laws require certain websites to have 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. 

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. 

In addition, more and more states are proposing their own privacy laws, each with their own unique requirements and penalties for not complying. Some of these bills would enable citizens to sue businesses for simply having a contact form without an updated Privacy Policy. Several states make note that businesses of any size and any location will have to comply or may face fines or lawsuits.

With more and more privacy laws on the horizon, we advise all of our customers to not only have a Privacy Policy in place but also have a strategy to keep it up to date with newly required disclosures. An up to date Privacy Policy can help you avoid significant privacy-related fines and lawsuits.
