Compliance complexity growing for companies required to meet GDPR, CCPA and other privacy law regulations.
(August 12, 2019) – Northwoods, a Shorewood, WI-based digital agency and software developer, is pleased to announce its partnership with CookiePro by One Trust to offer an easy, efficient solution that helps companies of all sizes and across all industries achieve compliance with online privacy laws.
Privacy laws and regulations such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR (which took effect May 25, 2018), and the California Consumer Privacy Act, or CCPA (which goes into effect Jan. 1, 2020), require companies to inform website visitors about the data they’re collecting online and give visitors the ability to choose what information they want to share – including opting out of data collection altogether.
This is most often accomplished through cookie consent. However, managing cookie consent to meet the different regulations set forth in each law can be complicated and is becoming even more so for many organizations, particularly those required to comply with both EU and U.S. privacy laws.
Currently, several states in the U.S. are also considering their own privacy laws with regulations that differ from California’s, which, if and when enacted, will significantly impact companies already struggling to achieve compliance with GDPR and/or CCPA.
“If your organization isn’t affected by online privacy law regulations right now, it’s just a matter of time,” says Patrick Bieser, president and founder of Northwoods. “All organizations – whether for-profit or not-for-profit - need to stay on top of what’s happening in this fast-moving space so they can effectively prepare to comply with current and new privacy laws.”
“Northwoods’ digital experts are dedicated to helping both our clients and our community understand what’s happening around online privacy and how it impacts them,” Bieser continues. “And, through our partnership with CookiePro by One Trust, we’re pleased to offer a fantastic new solution that helps organizations effectively streamline cookie consent so they can more easily and efficiently achieve compliance – both with current privacy laws and those yet to come.”
