Reason #1: Privacy Policies are required by law for most websites that collect Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
Chances are that your website collects PII if you have a contact form or an email newsletter sign-up form. PII is any data that could be used to identify a particular person such as name, email or phone number. If you do collect this type of information, the following privacy laws may apply to you:
- 1European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR);
- 2The California Online Privacy Protection Act of 2003 (CalOPPA);
- 3The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA): and
- 4Chapter 603A of the Nevada Revised Statutes and SB220.
Reason #2: Other states are proposing their own privacy bills
