Privacy Law by Country

privacy and global law

If you own a website, chances are you need a privacy policy. Specific laws vary from country to country, but many countries around the world agree that personal privacy is a basic human right. If you’re collecting any information from your users – including names, email addresses, even IP address or using browser cookies – you’re probably required by law to have a public privacy policy on your website.

And, aside from legal requirements, it’s best to be open and honest with your users about what you’re going to do with their information. People today are afraid of sharing their email addresses for fear of spam flooding their inboxes, and they’re right to safeguard their privacy. A privacy policy can help to put their fears to rest as they use your website.
