How can Complianz help you as a website owner to meet legal requirements?

We will explain how Complianz handles the legal requirements coming from CCPA, CalOppa and COPPA.

  • Website owners must provide a clearly visible “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link or button on their website or mobile app.

Complianz (Free) creates a user-friendly, customizable interface to your own DNSMPI page.  This link or button can be shown on a banner and/or in a menu.

  • The right to know what personal information is collected, used, shared or sold.

You can use your own privacy statement, or you can generate a privacy statement (written specifically for Californian visitors of your website) with Complianz (Premium) to fulfill these requirements. In the Complianz wizard, you will need to select the regions your visitors usually are coming from, which in this case will be the United States of America with California as an extra subregion for specific cookie management. 

  • Inform your visitors if you have sold any personal  data in the last 12 months,  and give the possibility to opt-out of the future sale of  personal information.

The DNSMPI page in Complianz (Free) gives the visitor the required information. In addition to that the DNSMPI page contains a data request form for the opt-out of the future sale of personal information. The Complianz plugin (Free) has a menu item to collect and handle these requests.

  • Show a list of the categories of personal information you have disclosed for a business purpose in the preceding 12 months.

The privacy statement generated with Complianz (Premium) creates and shows this list to the visitors, and it also remembers you of your legal obligation to keep it up to date after a periode of 12 months.

  • Website owners must let visitors know how they handle Do Not Track signals.

The privacy statement generated with Complianz (Premium) mentions if the website does or does not respond and support the Do Not Track (DNT) header request field. If your visitor
turns on DNT in the browser,  and if you have decided to respond to the Do Not Track (DNT) header request,  the Complianz plugin will automatically try to block any tracking of the browsing behavior.

  • Children under the age of 16 must provide opt-in consent, with a parent or guardian consenting for children under 13.

Based on answers you give to our wizard, the US region is implemented with COPPA, a federal privacy law protecting children online. If needed Complianz (Premium) generates a specific COPPA compliant Privacy statement for children.  

  • Inform your visitors if you offer financial incentives for the collection of personal information, the sale of personal information, or the
    deletion of personal information.

If needed the privacy statement generated with Complianz (Premium) makes it possible to hyperlink to the material terms of a financial incentive program.

  • The right to object against the further use of non-functional cookies.

Complianz (Free) makes it possible for your website visitors to either opt-out on marketing, tracking and other non-functional cookies, as well as give consent again when needed. For example, when playing YouTube videos or using social sharing widgets.
