US Privacy Laws Compliance Checklist
No matter where you are located, this information is relevant if you handle data coming from residents of states with enacted and effective US Privacy Laws. While Mouseflow automatically checks off a lot of boxes regarding the US Privacy Laws, a few actions might be required from you.
What you need to do
First, we ask you to review the US Privacy Laws and the definition of Personal Data.
You need to audit your website(s) to ensure Personal Data is excluded from tracking — across all page content and form fields.
No action is required. We mask IP addresses automatically. You can contact us to have complete IP exclusion enabled (stricter).
You should make a test recording in our platform to ensure all exclusions of Personal Data are functioning correctly.
You may need to obtain active and explicit consent to track users on your website(s). We recommend checking the laws and regulations that apply to your website(s) and obtaining legal advice.
You may be required to offer an opt-out for tracking on your website, depending on local laws/regulations. We recommend describing that you use Mouseflow, what it’s for, and providing a link to our opt-out page.
You can contact the data protection officer on email@example.com.
