GDPR Compliance

The new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) comes into force on 25th May 2018 and will replace the now outdated 1998 Data Protection Act. Designed to strengthen and unify data protection in today’s digital and ever connected world, any business found not to be compliant risks incurring a large financial penalty of up to €20 million or 4% of global turnover(whichever is higher) for non-compliance.   

We currently have available three templates from our preferred supplier to help your business’s website comply with the new GDPR; Terms of Use, Privacy Policy and Cookies. As an ISO 27001 accredited company, we are experienced in designing and implementing procedures for best practice in information security management. The templates have been designed to assist your business in becoming GDPR compliant and have been independently verified by a solicitor, barrister and US attorney and are of the highest quality with comprehensive guidance notes explaining how to use the templates.

We decided to offer these templates as we believe that when it comes to getting for GDPR then your website should be the first place to start as:

  1. It’s public.
  2. Proven consent procedures need to be in place when it comes to collecting email address (and this needs to be verified consent by a legal guardian if the person is under 18).
  3. Any data submitted through your website needs to be encrypted and,
  4. How you store data, whether this is in-house or through a third party, needs to be fully documented and include a procedure for the new ‘right to be forgotten’ clause.

We can also save you a lot of time with our Done-For-You-Service. To find out more give us a call.
