Privacy Policy

While the U.S. does not have a broad federal law that places privacy protection requirements on companies, California passed a state law imposing privacy protection. Since California is a large population center in the U.S., it’s impossible to transact American business without involving customers living in California. CalOPPA (California Online Privacy Protection Act) requires developers to create a Privacy Policy and display a conspicuous link to it on their websites. This is required of all developers who collect personally identifiable information like names, street addresses, telephone numbers, birth dates, and email addresses. To comply, you need to pay attention when designing your website. Customers must find the link to your Privacy Policy easily and not have to dig through text, graphics or other distractions to access it.
