Privacy Policies

Privacy Policy Lawyer – Data Use Attorney

The Internet provides unprecedented opportunities for the collection, processing, and sharing of information from and about consumers. As rapid changes in information technology have created an array of new means to collect and use personal information, the risks of abuse of such information have risen exponentially. 

Data privacy and security issues are more critical now than ever before and every company should have a global Privacy Policy. Displaying a Privacy Policy is recommended even if your website is not a commercial site. A privacy and data use lawyer is a critical asset to comply with the myriad of related consumer protection requirements.

In the context of eCommerce, legislatures, regulators and courts worldwide have responded with new restrictions on the maintenance and management of personal information. Every Internet-based business website that collects information from end-users must tailor a compliant privacy policy that provides specific information regarding its use, retention, protection, disclosure, and data collection processes pertaining to consumer information. Commercial website operators should be prepared to live with the commitments they make.
