Definition of Lawfulness

Lawfulness is the process of making sure that a website, its content, and its user interactions comply with applicable laws and regulations.

This includes ensuring that the site does not infringe on any Intellectual Property rights or engage in activities that are illegal according to national, state and local laws.

Lawfulness also means that the site should not be used to collect sensitive personal information without permission, nor should it contain deceptive or fraudulent information.

It is important for webmasters to stay informed about relevant legal updates in order to ensure that their websites remain compliant at all times.
