The business world of today is dependent on data to a great extent. It is also mostly dependent on the information it derives from said data. And this data is of the essence for businesses that operate by processing those pieces of information to provide products and services to their clientele.
From a corporation’s perspective, everyone starting from the topmost executive level to the operational level is hugely dependent on information. In this complex environment, almost everything is reliant on data. So, it just makes sense to have to protect this valuable asset.
The companies or websites usually collect personal information to provide a more personalized service to their users or customers. This personal information includes an individual’s name, email address, address, phone number, age, sex, marital status, race, nationality, religious beliefs, financial records, medical history, etc.

Why are privacy policies important?
Required By Law: To make the users feel safe about sharing their personal information, there has to be legal responsibility on businesses and/or websites to protect these data and keep the users up to date with their status.
To do that, countries worldwide have passed laws to protect their citizens’ information and data. And if you do not abide by that law, you are looking at a hefty fine as well.
Privacy laws require website owners and app owners to state their privacy policies. But, the rules have no particular federal regulation to establish the universal implementation of privacy policies.
