GDPR Is Your Website Ready?

The General Data Protection Regulation, known as GDPR, is a really positive step towards you having more control over how your data is used by websites and digital services and how you're contacted by them. The changes will also help to better protect your personal data.

As part of these changes, you may soon find organisations asking you how you would like to be contacted and this is also the case if your website collects and stores user data.

Your business will need to ask your customers how they would like to receive updates from you on features, products and offers.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organisations across the region approach data privacy.

Personal data is any information related to a natural person or ‘Data Subject’, that can be used to directly or indirectly identify the person. It can be anything from a name, a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social networking websites, medical information, or a computer IP address.

As a website owner, you need to get permission on how this Personal Data is used. Is your website ready?

At Storm Web Design we take data privacy seriously, and if you run a business or a website, you should too.
