Here’s the thing: We don’t want to get sued, and we don’t want you to, either.

Several privacy-related laws require certain websites to have a Privacy Policy

A Privacy Policy is a statement provided on a website that explains how you collect, use, and disclose personally identifiable information (PII). 

Any website that has as little as a contact form is collecting Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and should have a Privacy Policy. 

Several privacy laws are now in place to protect the Personally Identifiable Information of citizens of certain states with fines that can reach $2,500-$7,500 per website visitor. 

In addition, more and more states are proposing their own privacy laws, each with their own unique requirements and penalties for not complying. Some of these bills would enable citizens to sue businesses for simply having a contact form without an updated Privacy Policy. Several states make note that businesses of any size and any location will have to comply or may face fines or lawsuits.

With more and more privacy laws on the horizon, we advise all of our customers to not only have a Privacy Policy in place but also have a strategy to keep it up to date with newly required disclosures. An up to date Privacy Policy can help you avoid significant privacy-related fines and lawsuits.

Termageddon is a comprehensive website policies generator and will update your website policies when privacy laws change, helping you stay compliant and avoid fines and lawsuits, and they do it at a fraction of the cost of a privacy attorney.

A Termageddon license includes a set of policies (Privacy Policy, Terms of Service, Disclaimer, and more) to help ensure your website and business are protected. If Termageddon sounds like a good solution for your business, the license adds an additional $120 to your hosting/maintenance plan ($60 for nonprofits), and we’ll set up your policies and embed them on your website for you. You will have full access to your policies with your own Termageddon account, and you will be notified when new laws go into effect and when your policies are being updated or when new disclosures require additional questions that need to be answered.

Our team handles embedding your Termageddon policies on your website, technical support, billing, and updating policies before new laws become active/enforceable.
