This compliance is essential because it helps protect your website from potential legal liabilities. By remaining up-to-date on these policy changes, you can help avoid any adverse consequences of violating a policy.
For companies with more rigorous standards and all websites covered by EU Regulations, a Consent solution can be implemented so that each new site visitor must affirm consent. The proof of consent is recorded, and a log is maintained for historical reference and compliance. If your website is viewed within the European Union, and you receive personal information from EU residents, GDPR standards apply.
