How are you handling the customer information you collect? A patchwork of federal, state, and global laws and regulations comprise what is known as “privacy law.” Many of these laws impact how new and growing companies operate, especially those which rely on the collection and use of their customers’ information to help market and grow their business. Understanding how the law impacts this collection and use of personal information is vital to help businesses try to avoid what can be significant legal ramifications and monetary liability for violations of privacy law. This seminar is intended to provide an overview of relevant privacy laws, and provide some tangible takeaways about what entrepreneurs must consider in the privacy realm as they build their businesses.
