Data privacy plays a critical role in the Digital Age and the Information Age. Data is growing at an exponential rate and data privacy concerns is the topic of the decade. New data regulations and privacy laws are on the rise and website owners must be compliant in order to avoid financial penalties.
Data Privacy, also known as Information Privacy, is part of Data Security. At a very high level, Data Privacy Compliance is necessary because it involves how Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is collected, stored and used.
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is any personal information that can be used to identify a specific individual. PII can be anything related to an individual’s street address, email address, social security number or real name. It can also include a driver’s license number or a passport number. In additional, it includes an IP address (Internet Protocol address), which can be used to identify a device connected to a computer network, which can be traced back to a specific user or individual.
California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), in the United States, along with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in the European Union, are both data privacy laws and data privacy regulations that govern how businesses, organizations, corporations, enterprises and companies alike handle personal data, primarily for online services and web-based activities. Individuals, and particularly consumers, reserve the right to be informed on how their personal data is being used. In additional, consumers must be given the opportunity to opt-in and opt-out for certain data collection practices, such as website cookies, statistics cookies (advertising and analytics) and marketing cookies.
Your website must comply with all privacy laws and regulations, such as CCPA, GDPR, ePrivacy, LGPD, ICO, CNIL, Nevada SB 220 and all privacy laws that will be released in the future.
If you own and operate a website, and collect data from consumers in the European Union, you must take necessary steps to make your website GDPR Compliant. GDPR protects the rights and freedoms of residents located in the EU. If you own and operate a website, and collect data from consumers in California, your website must be CCPA Compliant.
