Accept/Decline Cookie Notice
This is not required for every website. Depending on the type of information you’re collecting, or tracking software you’re using, a Cookie Notice tool will be provided to allow website visitors the ablity to disable certain code snippets.
Why Data Privacy Works
Doesn't Require a Legal Team
You can avoid expensive legal fees to have something professionally drafted, in addition to any updates that might be needed as laws change.
Specific to Your Business
This is a not a generic statement, but crafted based on specifics related to your business, products/services, and tools you use to process sales or monitor interactions with your website.
Required by Law
Many places are requiring that businesses include data privacy statements as part of their compliance.
Avoid Expensive Lawsuits
Internet Trolls look for websites that fail to disclose how data is used and will file a lawsuit against the business for such ommissions. You could owe $7,500/visitor if found guilty.
How Accessibility Works
Strive for WCAG 2.1 AA Compliance
A set of guidelines that govern the International standard for website accessiblity. Learn more about WCAG standards.
Users With Motor Impairments
Keyboard only or voice assisted navigation is really important for these users because they are unable to use a mouse or trackpad to interact with the website.
Users with Visual Impairments
Users who are blind, have difficulty seeing clearly, or are color blind require a combination of high contrast colors and screen reading capability to see the website.
Users with Deafness
This refers to the videos displayed on your website. Videos should have subtitles included to achieve WCAG standards. (Note: We do not provide subtitling services)
