If you’re not a legal professional, 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.
Under the vast majority of legislations, it is required to disclose data collection and to implement a method of receiving consent or facilitating its withdrawal. Failure to adhere to these laws can result in hefty fines, leave you open to litigation and negatively affect the credibility of your website or app.
It’s useful to remember that under GDPR regulations consent is not the ONLY reason that an organization can process user data; it is only one of the “Lawful Bases”, therefore companies can apply other lawful (within the scope of GDPR) bases for data processing activity. However, there will always be data processing activities where consent is the only or best option.
Generally, these laws apply to any service targeting residents of the region, which effectively means that it’ll most likely apply to your business whether the organization or web servers are located in the region or not. See more information on Legal Requirementshere.
Since most third-party apps and services also need to follow the law, they may require that websites & apps meet regulatory standards.
From time to time third party requirements can change in response to internal or regional regulations. It’s often necessary that your policies meet the latest requirements in order to avoid interruption of service. For this reason, we use embedding and NOT copy & paste. With this method, you can rest assured that your policy is up to date and being maintained remotely by our legal team.
