Most website owners do not understand that by making this type of guarantee or promise and their website gets hacked, or there is a data breach exposing customer’s personal information, there is a list of government agencies and private parties that could possibly sue you into financial ruin. First on the list to come after you might be the FTC. And there is a long list of companies big and small who have felt their powerful enforcement actions.

Similar privacy and security provisions are currently being used by well-established Internet companies. These companies promise their customer’s information will be secure, and like any other contract, can be held accountable if those promises are not kept.
Unlike some fines for privacy violations which generally are not devastating to a business, if the companies using these types of provisions have a data breach by way of a hacker, employee, vendor or another person, they will likely be sued. The lawsuits can be filed by the FTC, an Attorney General from any state, customers, users or a combination thereof. And these types of lawsuits can bankrupt small-business owners.
