Say What Sarah?!
That’s right … but wait, there’s more …
Such language can be found several times throughout Facebook’s Guidelines, including the Statement of Rights and on Facebook Page Terms.
Just for starters, the state of California can levy a fine of up to $7,500 for each intentional incident and $2,500 for each unintentional incident in violation of what is known as the CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) … Ouch!
And the worst part is you don’t even need to live or offer or sell your product or service in CA for “The Golden State” to get its golden hands into your pocket. All that would need to happen is for any one of California’s 39.5 million residents (13% of the US population) to happen upon and then visit your privacy-policy-free-site for a potential violation to occur.
Who has to have one of these?
Basically anyone with a website, specifically the “operator of a commercial website or online service.”
And if you don't? You can get fined big-time. Do you have extra $$$ laying around right now? I hate to tell you this is rare, except it’s not. Just ask Delta, who got fined $37 million, or all of the App developers that are getting hit.
If you want to protect your hard work, energy, investments (I know that website wasn't free), and business, having a solid PP is an absolute requirement. Of course you can go and google yourself one up, but before you do … how will you know if it was written by an attorney, is updated for today’s laws and both CCPA & GDPR compliant? You won’t …. But you will if you get it HERE!
