In the United States, there is no single federal statute governing data privacy. However, the Federal Trade Commission Act (FTC Act) has wide latitude over commercial entities to combat unfair or “deceptive trade practices.”

What are Privacy Policies?

A privacy policy is a declaration or official document that explains how a party collects, utilizes, displays, and handles the data of a consumer or client.

CCPA Compliance

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a multi-sectoral law that establishes important definitions and extensive individual consumer rights, as well as imposes significant obligations on companies or individuals who gather private information regarding or from California residents.

GDPR Compliance

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) includes the EU’s data privacy and security law. According to the guidelines, an entity must alert visitors about the data it gathers and must expressly consent to that data collection by pressing an “Agree” button or taking another action.

Data Mapping and Data Audits

Data mapping ensures that everyone in the company recognizes how, where, and to whom data flows. It can be a critical first step and audit function to safeguard data privacy.

Consumer Privacy Regulations

Consumers should have their private information protected. A privacy policy on a website (as previously mentioned) is one way businesses can clarify what information is used, how it is used, and by whom. To protect the personal information of consumers, the Fair Trading Commission (FTC) employs law enforcement, policy efforts, and consumer and corporate education.

Corporate Compliance Policies

Internal processes and regulations aim to prevent and identify infractions of relevant legislation, and ethical values by personnel, agents, and others referred to as corporate compliance. Internal controls and legal risk management are involved.

Data Breach Prevention and Response

Extensive security measures should be taken to ensure that there is no data breach. In the event that data has been breached, appropriate steps should be taken as a response.
