How Your U.S. Website Needs to Change for GDPR

You’ve probably heard about “GDPR,” the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation.

And you probably have no idea what you need to do.

GDPR is a new set of rules that went into effect on May 25, 2018 and will change the law in every EU country.

GDPR also requires changes for most U.S. companies with a website.

Even if you don’t think you have EU website visitors or customers, the new law probably still applies to you.

Yes, most U.S. companies have to comply with GDPR!

Autumn’s friendliness and crystal clear explanations put me right at ease. I had a LOT of questions about privacy policy and GDPR regulations, so I wasn’t sure we’d even be able to get through everything, but we did – and more! I had my privacy policy in hand shortly after the session ended and have since made the switch from sole proprietor to LLC based on Autumn’s guidance.

Autumn and her entire team were a breeze to work with. I would absolutely recommend working with the AWB Firm to any of my artist friends who need hassle-free legal assistance for their business!

We were having trouble with Facebook ad approval because of issues with the terms and conditions and privacy policy on our website. With Autumn’s help, we were able to increase our ad approval rate by having the right policies on our site. The AWB Firm’s all-female team does a stellar job at fast, efficient communication, and their smart, streamlined processes make working with them a breeze.
