As new laws are passed around the world and in a growing number U. S. States, it is becoming increasingly critical that every website have clear policies that outline privacy concerns and usage by outside visitors. As business owners, we need to protect our digital assets and your website is one of, if not the, most important digital asset associated with your business.

In fact, it is so critical that Harness Media will soon be requiring its Website Care clients to have active Privacy Policy and Terms of Service pages publicly available on their hosted websites.

Several privacy laws already exist in the world and more are on the way. It is imperative that you protect yourself and your business by taking action as soon as possible. As of this writing, we are aware of the following privacy laws:

Furthermore, there will likely be many more on the horizon, especially as more States pass their own laws and the trend catches on.

Contact us to find out more about how we can help you setup your own Privacy Policy, Terms of Service and Disclaimer on your own website. This service is free of charge for Harness Media Website Care clients and included with all Website Care Plans. Also note that we’ve partnered with Termageddon and you can find more information by visiting their website.
