Does California Hate Your Website?

California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018
Beware of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018

The tarnished “Golden State” has enacted the horrible California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018.

This law targets website owners by claiming to protect privacy rights.

So, what if your business website isn’t located in California?

You could still be liable under the Act.

Because it protects information you collect from California residents. This includes residents’ names, email addresses, and other personal information.

Now this means you could be fined up to $7,500 per violation — even if you run your online business in another state or country!

We’ve seen this type of idiocy at the national and multinational level. For example, international enforcement of U.S. spam laws and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

But California’s attempt to regulate the online world takes it to a whole new level of nanny state scheming.

Is Your Website Covered By The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018?

It looks like the law (for now) only targets large online businesses.

Yet it would take only a simple change to a definition in the law to put the screws to smaller businesses.


Are you operating a large ecommerce venture? Consult with a California privacy law expert about complying with this albatross.

What if you run a small or medium-sized business (SME)? You may want to make it clear the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 doesn’t apply to your site…and the reasons why it doesn’t.

That’s the approach I’m taking in website legal documents for both…

With a little luck, the state legislature will gut or repeal the California Consumer Privacy Act. Or a court will strike it down as unconstitutional interference with interstate commerce.

But it’s possible the state law will stay on the books unless it’s preempted by Congress sometime in the future.

3 Surprising Things You Should Never Put On Your Website

By | Internet Lawyer, Website Lawyer, Website Legal Documents | No Comments

website protection legalAre you selling products or services online? For website protection, there are some things you shouldn’t put on your site.

Why?

Because the wrong content can lead to personal danger, lawsuits or even criminal charges.

Here are 3 of the most common content mistakes website owners make.

1. Home Address

Don’t post where you live on your site…unless you want identity theft and stalkers showing up at your front door.

2. Bad Customer Testimonials

Avoid testimonials that are fake, have gone stale, or contain false claims. Even if you make an extra sale or two, these testimonials invite lawsuits.

3. Stolen Website Legal Documents

You can’t “borrow” another site’s privacy policy, terms of use, etc. without the copyright owner’s permission. And if you do get permission, there’s a good chance the docs won’t provide the website legal shield you need.

Do You Want Website Protection?

Then invest in quality docs prepared by an experienced Website lawyer.
