It seems like every day there is a new privacy scandal

  • too much data collected by ubiquitous apps,
  • improper sharing of data with third parties,
  • the use of data for nefarious purposes, or
  • just plain old data breaches.

With this much going on, what are we to do?

Instead of waiting for the indecision train in the federal legislature, U.S. states have decided to take matters into their own hands by proposing new privacy bills to protect the consumers of their states. While the bills all differ somewhat, if passed, they would all require updates to your Privacy Policy.

Why do you have to stay on top of this?

If you are collecting personal information (e.g. name and email on your contact form), you are required to have a Privacy Policy. Currently, the following laws require Privacy Policies for most websites: 

  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR); 
  • UK Data Protection Act 2018;
  • California Online Privacy and Protection Act of 2003 (CalOPPA); 
  • California Privacy Protection Act (CCPA); 
  • Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA);
  • Delaware Online Privacy and Protection Act (DOPPA);
  • Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 603A; 

There are also about a dozen other states that are proposing their own privacy laws that would require most businesses to have a Privacy Policy and would affect how that Privacy Policy is written, requiring you to make changes on a pretty regular basis (see article).

Termaggedon created the state privacy bill tracker to help you better understand the proposed bills and how they may affect your business.

The privacy bill tracker discloses all bills that have been proposed by U.S. states that would affect Privacy Policy disclosures and business obligations. We do not include bills that have become law, nor bills that are dead. Here is a list of the laws that require you to have a Privacy Policy and that affect how that Privacy Policy is written. 

SUPA Product Academy has partnered with Termaggedon to provide policies for websites and applications. When the law changes, so do the policies, keeping your company protected and allowing you to focus on more important things.
