The fun part of the website experience might be the design phase, but we can’t forget about the logistics side of having a website. Below you will find a list of requirements that you must have in order to be compliant.
Global privacy laws require organizations to clearly communicate specific information about what data is collected, for what purpose, who it may be shared with, and how it is secured. You need one as part of your data compliance strategy for the GDPR, CCPA, LGPD and other regulations.
2. Terms and Conditions
This is the legal agreement between a service provider and a person who wants to use that service. The person must agree to abide by the terms of service in order to use the offered service. This is super important to have because you want to have everything outlined in order to protect your business. I recommend getting using a template drafted by a lawyer.
3. SSL Certificate
This is the lock bar next to your domain, it keeps internet connections secure and prevents criminals from reading or modifying information transferred between two systems. When you see a padlock icon next to the URL in the address bar, that means SSL protects the website you are visiting.
4. Cookies Agreement
Cookies are small files that websites send to your device that the sites then use to monitor you and remember certain information about you — like what’s in your shopping cart, or your login information. You have to give the option to your visitors to accept or reject tracking.
This is a written notice stating your work is 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘵𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘣𝘺 𝘤𝘰𝘱𝘺𝘳𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵, and that you own that copyright. The purpose of such notice is to avoid a situation where an infringer takes your work but then claims that he or she was completely unaware that it was protected.
