GDPR: A reminder of what it is
The 25th May 2018 came and went, and you and your business kept on doing your thing. Nothing blew up or fell down.
You’ve not yet been fined 4% of annual turnover or up to €20million in fines. Woo, scary.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on that date, and maybe you managed to get compliant before, around or slightly after that.
The executive summary version of the rights in the GDPR (and thank you Intersoft Consulting for the great site, also look here for the UK link) means that as an individual I have:-
* the right to be informed
* the right of access
* the right to correct errors
* the right to erase data
* the right to restrict processing
* the right to take it elsewhere (data portability)
* and the right to object
What does GDPR mean in reality?
ANSWER: How you market to customers, emailing personal data, cookies that track personal data (e.g. IP address) on your website – all are impacted by GDPR.
