As a website owner, you are responsible for ensuring that the content you put on your site is available to everyone – regardless of ability. And you are also responsible for protecting your visitor’s privacy when they visit your site.

Why You Need A Privacy Policy (and T’s & C’s)

Over a dozen states have proposed or already are implementing privacy laws to protect the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of its citizens. Pennsylvania’s House Bill 1049, modeled after the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), is a prime example.

Each of these laws has unique requirements as well as unique penalties for not complying. Some states are proposing businesses be fined over $5,000 per infringement (per website visitor).

Having a complete and up-to-date Privacy Policy and Terms & Conditions pages ensure that you:

  1. Avoid massive fines and lawsuits
  2. Limit your liability
  3. Keep control of your website
  4. Protect your intellectual property
  5. Ensure legitimacy to your website visitors

ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act) Compliance – Making Your Website Available to EVERYONE

As a website owner you are responsible for ensuring that content you put on your site is available to everyone – regardless of ability.

Websites that do not meet WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility standards can be fined up to $50,000 for a first violation, $100,000 for a second, and even more for compensation of damages.

Over 2250 website accessibility violation lawsuits were filed in 2018 and double that in 2019. That number is expected to triple this year. You need to act fast to ensure compliance with the ADA.

Remember, an accessible site will also allow nearly 20% of the population that has some form of disability to access your site’s content without any barriers or limitations.

“We wanted to be sure that our website was accessible to ALL visitors and that we were complying with current state, federal and international laws concerning privacy and visitor information.

With DigitalWires’ ADA Compliance and Privacy Policy service, we are confident that our website is both easy to navigate for those with disabilities and is compliant with current privacy policies. As far as we are concerned, it’s not only the smart thing to do; it’s also the right thing to do.”
