The GDPR requires several key things from a company:
The GDPR places strict guidelines on privacy policies. First of all, the policy must be written in a straightforward manner, with no “legalese”. It cannot go on and on forever with fine print that would take hours to read. Anyone should be able to read your policy quickly and walk away with a detailed understanding of how your company handles their data.
Fourth, as you rewrite your policy, take stock of every privacy law you may be subject to. The GDPR is the most famous but is far from the only one. For instance, Canadian customers are covered by the CASL and Californians by the CCPA. Recently passed laws in Virginia, Nevada, and New York show that the rest of the country is following California’s example. Include clauses that address each of these laws and explain how you comply with them.
