Where do I get one?
How do I get started?
As mentioned in the updated introduction to this post, the first step is to make sure you know what data is being collected about your website users and who is collecting it. Start with the most obvious data collection points – how do website visitors contact you? Do you have a form they can fill out with their contact info? Who has access to that data and how is it used and shared?
With the obvious data accounted for, think about any tracking codes you may have on your website. Do you have any type of website analytics tracking or CRM tracking? For information about what data these companies collect and who it is shared with, go to their websites and look up their privacy information (for example you can view information about Google Analytics data collection here).
That wasn’t so bad. Now what?
