GDPR and how 2 Dam Creative can help you be compliant

17 May 2018

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force in the EU on May 25 and it provides individuals with a new set of privacy rights. GDPR will reach beyond the shores of the EU and will extend to any company who collects data from EU citizens. You are collecting data if you are asking your users or customers for any information, from a simple email address to add them to your mailing list to collecting payment details for a transaction.

 

Although we are unable to give you legal advice, we can assist you in updating your website to ensure that it is compliant. 2 Dam Creative can help by making sure:

 

  • Your web forms provide an active opt-in button
  • Consent you are asking for is set out separately for the different ways you are using data
  • Users can specify if they want to receive data via each type of medium (eg. email, sms, post)
  • You make it as easy to remove consent as it was to grant it
  • Your web forms clearly identify each party for which the consent is granted
  • Your updated privacy notice as well as terms and conditions are current
  • Are you ready to update your website to be GDPR compliant?
