What is the GDPR?

Worried about keeping your website GDPR compliant? You’re not the only one. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was put into place to protect EU citizens’ private information, and it applies to any business - regardless of their location - that collects or processes data from individuals living in Europe. By adhering to these rules, you can ensure that the personal information provided by visitors on your site remains safe. 

If your website collects personal data from EU citizens, it’s important to make sure that you are compliant with GDPR. This includes giving your visitors the option to allow or deny the use of cookies on your website and providing them with access to your privacy and cookies policy. 

How can you make sure that your website is GDPR compliant?

That’s where Techincal Drive Digital comes in. We’re a team of digital experts who can help you navigate the complicated world of GDPR compliance. We will work with you to assess your website’s current level of compliance and identify areas that need to be addressed. 

Once we have assessed your website we will provide you with a plan to make sure it is fully GDPR compliant. 

Here are some steps that we may recommend you take to ensure compliance:

Identify the personal data you collect

The GDPR requires you to be transparent about the personal data that you collect and process, so make a list of the types of personal data you collect and why you need it. 

Obtain consent 

You are required to obtain explicit consent from individuals before collecting or processing their personal data. Ensure that you have a clear and user-friendly consent form that individuals must agree to before you collect their data. 

Protect personal data

You must implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect personal data from unauthorised access, use, or disclosure. This may include encrypting data, implementing access controls and regularly updating your security measures. 

Offer data access, and rectification

Users lawfully have the right to access and rectify their personal data, so make sure that you have a process in place for users to request and receive copies of their personal data and to request that any incorrect data be corrected. 

Implement data retention policies

As part of the GDPR requirements, you will need to implement data retention policies that specify how long different types of personal data will be retained and regularly review and delete data that is no longer needed. 

Respond to data breaches 

The GDPR requires you to notify the relevant authorities and affected individuals if a data breach occurs. You will need to make sure that you have a process in place for detecting and responding to data breaches, including a plan for notification and communication. 

Following these steps can help ensure that your website is compliant with the GDPR and that you are protecting the data of EU citizens and residents.
