Currently, there are multiple privacy laws in the United States and across the world that
These laws were created to protect the consumers of those states and countries, not the
businesses. This means that these laws can apply to businesses outside of those states
and countries and may apply to you if you do business there, collect the personal
information of residents of those states or countries, or offer goods or services there.
Fines for violations of privacy laws start at $2,500 per violation (per website visitor).
