GDPR & You

The General Data Protection Regulation is a significant piece of legislation that replaces all current data protection regulations.

We're working on a suite of tools for the Control Panel which will help you with achieving and maintaining compliance. These tools aim to reduce the cost overhead of some key parts of compliance, make it easy to manage certain common processes, and guide you to areas that need attention.

Data Subject Rights

The GDPR specifies a number of rights that individuals have regarding any of their personal data held by organisations. They may exercise these rights at any time, without cost or undue difficulty or delay.

This means you - as a data controller - have a responsibility to be able to fulfil requests on this data across all locations in a timely manner (30 days).

For your website and CMS, we're making this easy and quick to manage.

Data Subject Request Form

With your website being a key point of contact, we're creating a form where users can specify which right they wish to exercise, with an in-built identity verification step.

Data Subject Request Management

To make it easy to keep track of requests, we’re developing a ticketing system so you have an at-a-glance view of oustanding requests and how long you have to action them.

You will be able to use this system to manage requests that you receive from outside of the website as well, if you wish.

Data Subject Request Actions

We are building one-click solutions for fulfilling most requests, as well as comprehensive tools to help you deal with more complex tasks.

We are also open to integrating these solutions with other systems you may have.

Consent

A critical part of the GDPR is the expanded requirement for how consent is collected for processing user data. To this end we're building a tool for easily creating compliant consent options and attaching them to any existing data collection points on your website, such as forms and cookie notices.

In addition, the regulation specifices that individuals should be able to withdraw consent as easily as they gave it. To solve this, we're creating a straightforward tool where users can see what consent they've given and allow them to change it.

Policies

It is necessary to update your privacy policies for GDPR, and the details will need to updated on a more regular basis. In the Control Panel, we are creating one convenient place for dropping in and editing policies.

And That's Not All...

We're always monitoring the state of the industry so we can bring you state-of-the-art tools to take the headache out of managing your presence online.

We believe that the GDPR is a positive step towards better protection of individuals, and are building a great suite of tools into the Control Panel to take the worry out of it for our clients.

We're already working on making important compliance practices like data minimisation and automatic removal of old data easy to facilitate in the Control Panel too. We're excited to launch these new features and welcome any feedback.

Consultancy
