If I am updating my corporate address on my Privacy Policy

Hi If I am updating my corporate address on my Privacy Policy and Terms of Use on my website and this is the ONLY change I am making, do I need to update the updated and effective dates as well? I am not sure since it's not a material change to anything, other than saying that if they need to contact us for privacy concerns, etc, that it's a new address

I have a tracking code from a program called heat map

I have a tracking code from a program called heat map tracker that tracks and records where a visitor's mouse cursor goes on a web page. (this is for conversion rate optimization -CRO). Each visitor's "session" aka web page visit has the visitor's IP addressassociated with it. Am I legally obligated, in the U.S., to have any sort of disclaimer at the bottom of my page explaining this? Do I need to add a paragraph about it to my privacy policy or anything like that? Thanks

This question is in regards to registering an EIN / Tax ID

This question is in regards ***** ***** an EIN / Tax ID with the IRS.I'm a Canadian citizen that is setting up an LLC in the state of Wyoming, and I found a bank that is willing to open up a U.S. bank account for my LLC.However, the bank mentioned that it would save a lot of paperwork if the registering agent of my LLC applies to the IRS for my the LLC's EIN/Tax ID with my personal Canadian home address. It feels uncomfortable registering with my personal information; I would much rather register with my LLC's address.Two questions:1.) Does this in any way affect me or my Canadian corporation from a tax liability perspective? The whole purpose of setting up the U.S. LLC is to keep income tax filings clean - I do not want to engage in any cross-border taxes.2.) Can anyone, including the public, access my personal information via the EIN/Tax ID?

In New York State, if I operate an online business website

In New York State, if I operate an online business website (through an LLC and an assumed name), am I required to list a physical street address on the website? The list is not engaged in sale of goods/services. It is solely informational. (We make money through ads.) I don't want to put my name and address on there, just an email address and maybe a telephone number as required under terms of use and privacy policy. Do I also need to list the physical street address (e.g. the one that appears on the LLC documents.)
