- State or federal data privacy laws.
- Data usage or functions specific to a company or its website.
Why? In part because of how information protection laws work in the U.S. At present, the only data privacy laws that exist at the federal level are those outlined by HIPAA, which regulate businesses in the healthcare sector. For everyone else, data privacy is regulated by a patchwork of state laws. And if you serve clients in more than one state, you may be required to adhere to info security laws in multiple jurisdictions.
