#StackBounty: Which country's privacy policy is applicable to my website?

Bounty: 50

I’m searching but I am getting different opinions from different sources.

Some internet sources are saying, privacy policy applicable to country where your websites’s data center(hosted) is, because your website physically present there. In one source I read that, it depend on target population, suppose your website is hosted in US and your target population is EU, then you need to comply with EU website privacy laws.

Some sources indicating TLD also contributes. So, I am not getting one clear guideline. I would like to know how shall I decide which country’s privacy policy law will be applicable to my website.

  • My Country – India
  • My website’s TLD – .com
  • My website hosted at – Chicago(USA)
  • Target population – Non specific(General learning site.)

Thanks,
