As you may be aware the General Data Protection Regulation, which is a new law enacted by the European Union (EU), enforced new policies on May 25, 2018. The law basically has to do with how websites marketing online collects data, location, and email.
Currently both Facebook and Google are undergoing lawsuits on the sharing of personal data.
Even though this is a European Union policy change and you think this doesn’t impact your business, you may be mistaken. The EU has over 500 million people that search on the web and find their way onto your sites and social channels daily. Collection of personal data across the worldwide web is a very important issue today, so as a website owner in the U.S. there are policies we can comply with and follow.
Therefore, we believe that every business being hosted online should take precautions and comply with the new EU policies and legal regulations.
