At Glendale Designs, we understand the importance of proactivity and ensuring our clients are well-informed and protected. Given the continuous emergence of new laws, it’s essential to remain vigilant as they may affect your operations. Remember, claiming ignorance is not a valid defense.

Whether you manage an eCommerce platform, a WordPress site, or a combination of both, the landscape of online regulations is evolving rapidly. Gone are the days when using a free generator sufficed for drafting your terms and conditions and privacy policies. Compliance is now more critical than ever.

It all began with the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which mandated stringent measures to safeguard the personal data of European Union (EU) residents. Since then, numerous US states have enacted or are in the process of passing laws to protect consumer privacy, extending beyond state borders.

If your website collects data from visitors, you’re likely gathering Personally Identifiable Information (PII), including usernames, passwords, contact form submissions, online profiles, email addresses, IP addresses, browser information, and more.

Can you protect your site and yourself?

In today’s discourse on privacy and personal data, hiring an attorney to draft these documents can be prohibitive. The initial draft can cost up to $25,000, not to mention ongoing maintenance fees.

Who has the time to keep up with the constant legal changes and fees while managing daily responsibilities?

Currently, privacy laws are enforced in 20 states, and 36 more bills are in the pipeline. Termageddon provides an unparalleled solution to keep you updated on these changes.

Most business websites feature contact forms that collect PII from users, necessitating compliance with multiple privacy laws. With over 15 state-specific privacy laws proposed, fines for non-compliance could reach up to $7,500 per violation, per website visitor.
