Privacy & Personal Information

We’ve all heard about major data breaches in recent years – Yahoo, eBay, Equifax, Target, Home Depot, Adobe, Sony and many more. This is the world we live in now where personal information is a highly sought-after asset. Our clients may not large multi-national entities. But, the same best-practices apply to small businesses as they do to large companies with dozens of in-house IT people.

It’s vitally important that you consider how you handle the information that your website receives and transmits. Do you have a privacy policy and terms of service in place on your site? Have they been reviewed by a lawyer? What contingency plan do you have in place in the event of a breach?

We aren’t lawyers. So, the we’ll leave the legalese between you and your legal advisor. But we do provide recommendations on how WordPress websites should be configured so that personal information is stored and transmitted in compliance with your industry regulations as well as your company’s internal policies about information handling and security. For our top-tier clients, we even work with you to ensure your WordPress site complies with regulations such as PIPEDA (the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act) and GDPR (the General Data Protection Regulation).
