State, federal, and local laws require businesses to take reasonable steps to protect any personal information collected from customers, and ensure that their website complies with accessibility guidelines for deaf and blind users. New consumer privacy laws ranging from the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) have imposed specific requirements on websites related to privacy policies & practices. All businesses that have a website visible to California consumers must comply with the CCPA, regardless of where the business is located. CCPA enforcement is effective July 1st, 2020. In addition, there is a growing legal risk associated with website privacy policies and site accessibility for disabled individuals. Meanwhile, 2018 and 2019 saw large spikes in the number of lawsuits filed against companies for having websites that did not comply with the uniform Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) to ensure website accessibility for deaf and blind users. Due to new legislation domestically and internationally requiring critical updates to privacy policies and practices, businesses must comply with laws and regulations relating to consumer privacy data.
