Failure to comply with GDPR could lead to very big fines indeed. Therefore, now really is the time to start making sure you are completely compliant with the rulings.

What is GDPR, and How Does it Affect My Business?

GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, came into effect as of May 25th, 2018. It was a much-needed refresh to outdated data privacy law, outlined by the European Union to help protect individuals’ online data.

No matter the size of your business, if you are capturing user or customer data to any extent, you must be clear on the rights they possess. This means that you need to be clear and concise on what data you process, how you retain it, and what your customers can do if they’d like to be ‘forgotten’, or if they’d like to access their data.

Crucially, GDPR gives a lot of power back to your customers! As there are large fines involved for breaching the new regulations, it’s important that you are fully compliant at all times.

You need to ask yourself a few questions:

  • Are all your policies GDPR friendly?
  • Does your website use contact data or cookies?
  • Do you inform your customers about how you use their data?
  • What data do you collect?
