Lookit® will create and manage your compliance needs, which include:
Legislation has 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.
The GDPR is a new data and privacy security legislation which was developed by the European Parliament and Council for the protection of data rights of the EU citizens. Companies (including websites, mobile, and desktop apps etc.) that do business transactions with EU citizens are going to be affected by this regulation.
The legal consequences for non-compliance can include fines up to EUR 20 million (€20m) or 4% of the annual worldwide turnover (whichever is greater), but perhaps equally as concerning are the other potential sanctions that may be implemented against organizations found to be in violation. These sanctions include official reprimands (for first-time violations), periodic data protection audits and liability damages.
The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that websites be accessible to people with disabilities.
Both the U.S. and the U.K. refer to non-government related websites as “public” and “public sector” entities, allowing the legal system to hear cases brought by persons with disabilities who find themselves unable to use a public-facing business website. In the U.S.A., this is referred to as the ADA Title III, Public Accommodations and Commercial Facilities. Generally, websites should be compliant with WCAG 2.1, ADA, Section 508 and other worldwide legislation. Government contractors must be ADA compliant to receive money from the US Government. Many states are following suit.
Without ADA Compliance, you are subject to lawsuits by people with disabilities, and this is going to become a requirement for insurance companies to underwrite insurance policies for all businesses.
