Frequently Asked Questions
Most frequent questions and answers
Why do I need to comply with privacy laws?
To ensure that you are lawfully processing personal data in order to run your business and not over-collecting information that you don’t need. Any unnecessary collection or processing of personal information may be considered a privacy breach.
No, because you still need to examine all of the other ways in which personal information is being processed. This includes evaluating the consent forms and notices that you deploy whilst using your product, knowing when you are permitted to collect with consent and when consent is not required, ensuring your policy is tailored for customers in other jurisdictions and ensuring any internal processes to collect personal data are compliant.
I do not believe that my business is dealing with personal data. Do I still need to comply with privacy law requirements?
Yes, because even if you are not collecting personal information from consumers, you are still gathering personal data relating to your employees and need to know how to handle that information. You are still legally bound to safeguard their personal information. Additionally, you are still gathering some personal information in the form of cookies on your corporate website.
