Which Websites need to be GDPR and CCPA Compliant?

This page tells whether your website needs to be compliant with them. This also speaks about how you can easily create a policy that is compliant with the GDPR and CCPA within a few minutes.

The GDPR can apply where:

  • an entity’s base of operations is in the EU (this applies whether the processing takes place in the EU or not);

  • an entity not established in the EU offers goods or services to people in the EU. The entity can be government agencies, private / public companies, individuals, and non-profits; or where

  • an entity is not established in the EU, but it monitors the behavior of people who are in the EU, provided that such behavior takes place in the EU.

Currently, having user consent is the most common lawful ground. However, the rule for collecting and keeping the data has become stringent by the GDPR.

The primary requirements of CCPA compliance are that you have to publish a privacy policy on your website and take users’ consent for collecting, storing, and processing their personal data.

The CCPA can apply where:

BOTH of the following conditions apply

  • You have a business; and

  • you target Californian consumers.
