Make your site or app compliant with iubenda

Getting your website or app to be compliant with international privacy laws can be tedious and difficult. iubenda provides several comprehensive and customizable solutions that you can seamlessly integrate into your website or app.

What you need to know

As the world becomes more dependent on digital products and services, data privacy has increasingly become a top priority for many countries and regions. As a result, many regions have put in place robust and enforceable data regulations by which businesses are expected to comply.

In the EU the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced in an effort to centralize data protection for people in the EU and become fully enforceable in May 2018. At its most basic, it specifies how personal data should be lawfully processed (including how it’s collected, used, protected or interacted with in general).

If you process European users data but you’re based outside of the EU, you may also need to appoint an EU Representative. For more information, check out our dedicated template here.

Because using cookies means both processing user data and installing files that could be used for tracking, it is a major point of concern when it comes to user data privacy rights. The Cookie Law was implemented to address this concern.

Under the Cookie Law, organizations that target users from the EU must inform users about data collection activities and give them the option to choose whether it’s allowed or not. This means that if your site/app (or any third-party service used by your site/app) uses cookies, you must first obtain valid consent prior to the installation of those cookies, except where those cookies fall into the category of exempt cookies.

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is California’s newest privacy law aimed at enhancing consumer privacy rights for residents of California, United States. The law became effective on January 1st, 2020, and is fully enforceable from July 1st, 2020.

The CCPA puts in place new requirements for processing personally identifiable information, and grants Consumers additional rights, therefore, it will likely have a significant impact on both business processes and overall liability.

The Brazilian General Data Protection Law, the Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados Pessoais (LGPD) can be considered as Brazil’s answer to the GDPR — with the Brazilian law aligning with the European Regulation in many ways, while differing in others. It’s intended to replace or supplement its current dispersed legal landscape (of over 40 federal sector-based norms) with one main regulatory framework.

The Act and Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) govern the collection, storage, use and disclosure of Personal Information.

Australian businesses are bound by the Privacy Act if:

Overseas laws may also apply to your Australian website/app.
