Happy holidays! With the new year beginning, it’s important to be aware of new privacy laws going into effect in 2023 that could impact your business. Legislatures have been busy this year, and there are 6 laws that could require you to make changes to your privacy policies and website terms in the new year. In an increasingly digital age, data privacy is becoming more important than ever, and legal action has placed the onus on business owners to be aware of and proactive about the website data they collect and handle. Below, we provide brief details about each of these laws and whether you need to take action.
What Do These Privacy Law Changes Mean for Your Business?
Depending on the reach and customer base of your website, these new privacy laws may or may not apply to you this year. 5 of the 6 newly enacted laws were passed by state legislatures – however, your business need not be located in one of these states for the statutes to apply to you. Instead, they apply to anyone who controls, collects, or processes large amounts of data related to the residents of the relevant states.
Regardless, with privacy laws relating to websites, it is always best to stay up to date and comply with all policies that are or could become relevant to your site. Visitors and traffic are always changing, and you don’t want to be caught unprepared.
