Why Make Your Website ADA, GDPR and CCPA/CPRA Compliant?

Your Website is Putting Your Business At Risk

Suing website owners over Website ADA Compliance violations is just a “business” for many attorneys. Every day, these attorneys are hunting for websites like yours — sites that are not ADA compliant — that they can threaten to sue for tens of thousands of dollars

And Privacy Compliance Laws like the GDPR and CCPA/CPRA can put your business at risk of civil lawsuits, government prosecution, and even jail time, not to mention the damaged reputation that a data breach can cause.

Don’t be a sitting duck. Protect yourself today with our ADA Compliance Services, GDPR Compliance Services, and CCPA/CPRA Compliance Services

Your Compliant Website Can Bring In More Business

As many as 20% of all people have some sort of disability which prevents them from using your website the way you imagine most users do.

Whether their disability is with their vision, their hearing, their motor skills, or something else, they cannot learn about your business, enjoy your content, or buy your products or services.

And many other consumers and businesses will only do business with those who take their privacy seriously.

Your compliant website can help you serve more people.

Why Your Website Might Get You Sued In 2024

Watch this short video to find out why your business is at risk and what to do about it.

My name is Mark Widawer, founder of Web Compliance Pro.

Did you know that your website might get you sued this year?

As business owners, we all need to comply with all sorts of federal, state and local laws,

from IRS Taxes down to local building codes.

The bad news is that if we violate just one of these laws,

someone from the government might come knocking at your door.

One of those laws you need to comply with is the Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA.

You probably already comply with it in most areas of your business.

That’s why you already have handicapped parking spots, wheelchair ramps, wide doorways & wheelchair compatible sinks, and low bathroom mirrors at your office.

Everyone knows that according to the ADA, your entire business needs to be “accessible.”

But the ADA is different than many other regulations because of three very important things.

First, is that there is a right to private action.

That means that it’s not just the government that can come after you,

but angry individuals on a mission who can sue you for not being ADA Compliant.

The second is that by statute, the prevailing party also wins attorneys fees,

which turns those angry individuals into professional, profit-seeking plaintiffs.

And the third is that determining whether you are violating the ADA is not much a matter of opinion. It’s very objective.

If your facility is non-compliant, then a simple checklist with measurements and photographs are all that are needed to prove it to a judge or jury.

And as a result, there are people who drive from business to business with

Cameras, Clipboards and Tape Measures looking for ADA violations about which they can sue,

and then filing or threatening to file lawsuits that will cost the business owner tens of thousands,

perhaps hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The same kind of professional plaintiffs are now scouting business websites looking to do the same thing to you.

And that’s why business owners are finally realizing that the ADA applies to websites just as it does to physical structures.

They have seen the countless headlines about how businesses are being shaken down with these Website ADA lawsuits.

And because the lawsuits are an almost automatic win for the plaintiffs, business owners typically give up the fight and settle for huge dollars that often bankrupt the business.

That’s why there has been an alarming trend these last few years that should have every business owner scared.

Website Accessibility lawsuits filed by these professional plaintiffs nationwide are increasing rapidly.

In 2015 there were just over 50 of them.

By 2018 that number had increased to 2,258.

The numbers aren’t in for 2019 yet, but they are sure to be many times higher.

And I’ve seen estimates that say that for any one of these cases that gets to court, 40 more settle out of court,

almost every one of them resulting in huge checks being written by the business to cover legal expenses.

That turns those 2,258 lawsuits into about 90,000 out-of-court settlements, each for huge dollars.

You might have heard that last October, the Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal from Domino’s pizza,

who lost a website ADA case to a blind man who couldn’t order a Pizza online.

In the last few years, Target was also sued because its website was not accessible, as were Burger King, CVS, Nike, Beyonce, and thousands more.

But it’s not just big businesses that are getting sued. They are just the ones that people talk about.

Small businesses are more often sued than large businesses because they are more likely to not be able to afford a strong defense – especially if their website is clearly inaccessible –

and therefore their attorneys advise them give in to the Shakedown and to settle quickly.

Our goal at Web Compliance Pro is to make you aware of these issues and to help make you a much less attractive target for malicious website ADA compliance lawsuits.

So how do you help protect your company from hundred-thousand dollar or million dollar lawsuits?

You make your website “Accessible” or “ADA Compliant.”

Those terms mean that people who are completely blind, people with low vision, people who can’t hear well, people who are deaf,

people who lack motor skills and can’t move a mouse or use a keyboard, people with cognitive disabilities, and others, all need to be able to use your website.

And it doesn’t matter if your website sells products or simply promotes and describes your business.

It doesn’t matter if your business has 1000 employees or just 1.

It also doesn’t matter if you do $100 million in revenue, or $100 dollars in revenue.

If your website helps someone to do business with you, then it needs to help all the people I’ve just mentioned to do business with you.

If you are interested in knowing what your company’s risk is — if your website is a good or a bad target for an ADA website lawsuit —

and what it will take to make it ADA compliant, please go now to WebCompliancePro.com/assess or click the Assessment button to find out.

If you qualify, we’ll do a Preliminary Risk Assessment of your website so you’ll know how exposed you are because of compliance problems on your website.

Even with the COVID pandemic and all the related issues, people are out there now looking for websites like yours to add to their own bank accounts.

Yearly Growth in Website ADA Lawsuits

Every Year, More Companies Are Sued for Website ADA Issues

According to the American Bar Association Journal, Website ADA Lawsuits have increased from 56 in 2015 to 2,258 in 2018, a 3,600% increase. Even more are predicted for 2024 and beyond.

Why Our “Intelligent Accessibility Compliance System” Is a Better way to make your Website ADA Compliant

With our Intelligent Accessibility Compliance System, we start by using our Artificial Intelligence-based remediation system to learn about your site and do as much of the work as possible. Then we put our manual remediation team to work to handle any issues that might remain. The result is the lowest up-front cost and the most permanent accessibility remediation possible.

Lower Cost

Manual remediation is very expensive, as each page has to be individually remediated by hand. Our IACS handles over 90% of the issues on its own, so there are less issues to code manually.

Faster Remediation

We can usually install our IACS within two business days, and it will finish its first pass 2 days after that. Compare that with having to wait weeks or months for manual remediation.

Keep Your Design

Manual remediation almost always requires that the look of the website change for all users, often destroying your site's design. Our IACS preserves your website’s design for most users.

Longer Lasting

Manually remediated sites usually need to be remediated over again if the pages are changed or added. Our IACS automatically remediates new or changed pages within 48 hours.

What is Privacy Compliance?

It used to be that data about website visitors was owned by anyone who collected it. Recent laws, like the GDPR and CCPA (and its recent CPRA reincarnation) say that Consumers own the data about themselves. Privacy Compliance is being clear about what, when and how data is collected, acknowledging the rights of the data owners, and protecting the data when it’s in your possession.
