Operating a website
The information that customers provide to businesses is invaluable for marketing and production purposes. However, you want to ensure that this information isn’t misused and that you’re protected if this information becomes corrupted in any way. There have been a number of instances where large customer databases have been hacked into. If you collect large amounts of customer data, you will also be legally required to let your customers know.
As part of your customer service, being proactive in protecting your customers’ privacy will also be good for your business’s reputation.
Privacy laws are in a constant state of change
Privacy laws are constantly changing, due to the ways in which information can be exchanged and social views. It’s always a better option to keep up with policies and general views on privacy as they are now, rather than have to continually change your processes in the future.
