The Need for Privacy
Due to information being made public about large companies like Facebook and Google buying and selling users’ information, the need for privacy is at an all time high. Consumers want to be able to use these platforms, other social media tools and business-based websites without having all of their information stolen or compromised. Further, anywhere a website collects payment through credit card or a PayPal transaction should notify users that their information is being collected.

What Are the Consequences Of Avoiding Privacy?
This is a really common question and although it is unclear from state-to-state, it’s encouraged to let users know they are being tracked. If it came down to a legal proceeding and you could not prove that your website notified users of their privacy, you could find yourself with a lawsuit and steep fines.
