For many companies, website compliance factors influence the design and functionality of the B2B website and associated marketing strategies. Our team has the expertise to help you understand regulations such as GDPR, CPPA, HIPAA and accessibility guidelines.
While these common regulatory frameworks may apply more to companies serving consumers than B2B and industrial businesses, you must be aware of your firm’s risks and take protective measures.

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is newer than GDPR, with regulation starting January 2020. It’s quite similar to the GDPR, but aimed at protecting the data privacy of California residents. This regulation’s implications extend to any business with customers residing in California, even if it’s only online. The good news is that the guidance for a CCPA compliant website is similar to GDPR, and our team has experience in implementing the steps required for compliance.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) affects any business or organization in a health-related field. Information you collect through contact forms, analytics, or other means has to follow the strict data privacy and security provisions required for safeguarding medical information. Even if you aren’t directly asking for patient information through your website, if you’re in the healthcare field, a patient could accidentally enter their information into a contact form, which means you’ll need HIPPA compliant forms. We can help you implement turnkey solutions for HIPPA compliance.
Having an accessible website is a good business practice and a legal mandate. The two leading accessibility guidelines that oversee website requirements are detailed in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Whether you have a mandate to meet WCAG 2.1 AAA accessibility or are taking steps to safeguard your investment against future complaints or accessibility lawsuits, we’ll help you establish the best practices you’ll need to develop long-term website compliance and accessibility requirements.
