Privacy & Security

Ensuring a secure web environment

In a world ruled by data, we must ensure that users have choice, control, and security over their information. In building a website, the Ethical Web Collective takes these responsibilities into consideration and we commit to being transparent about what we will do with users’ data.

Building trust with users requires putting privacy and security at the forefront. While providing a personalized experience is important, the power of choice should always be a top priority.

While many want to provide users with a more personalized experience, the power of choice should always be considered.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) consists of Seven Key Principles

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an explicit and detailed data privacy law that we use
to dictate the standards to which we hold ourselves. There are seven core principles that we utilize to inform our approach:


All individual data is processed lawfully, fairly and transparently.


Limit the collection and processing of information to its original purpose.


Gather the minimum amount of data required that is adequate and relevant.


Keep only accurate data and take the necessary steps to ensure if it is not accurate, that it is erased or corrected as soon as possible.


Limit the storage of information for only as long as is necessary.


Ensure that all information is secured and confidential and that it is stored with integrity.


Be able to demonstrate that we are accountable for and can comply with the aims of the GDPR as stated above.

Building Trust with Transparency

Transparency is of utmost importance to the Ethical Web Collective. As a result, we want to highlight our core commitments to our clients and their users when we build a website. Clear communication is important between developers and clients; we make sure to outline our Privacy & Terms of Use which describe what information we collect, how it’s stored, who we share it with, and what it’s used for. We regularly audit our code to ensure it isn’t captured or used in malicious ways, and we integrate cookie banners for documented consent from users.
