What is GDPR and why should I care?

The General Data Protection Regulation standardises data protection law across and imposes strict rules on controlling and processing identifiable information. All websites collecting data from EU citizens must meet these GDPR requirements, regardless of industry or sector.

Non-compliance also carries with it the potential for a significant fine, if the data is mishandled. This fine is capped at €20 million, or 4% of your global annual turnover for the preceding fiscal year, whichever is higher.

What are the GDPR requirements?

Under the new GDPR statutes, any company operating within the EU and the UK, or any company which handles data from those regions. The majority of websites will handle user data in some way, whether it’s storing contact form submissions or logging IP addresses/location data of its users.

The key focuses on GDPR regulations are as follows:

  1. Affirmative Opt-in – Every contact form must afford the user the opportunity to opt OUT of receiving communications. No data may be used to contact the user unless this consent is given.
  2. Cookie Control – With the rise of cookie usage among websites, the user must have the ability to opt out of cookies. They must be shown what cookies are being used, and what they’re used for. These are typically broken down into 4 categories:
    1. Essentials – These are cookies required for the website to function correctly and include cookies for things such as browser sessions, language selections etc.
    2. Functionality – This will allow the website to remember social media settings etc.
    3. Analytics – Enabling these cookies will allow location & region based on your IP address, as well as tracking time spent on the site.
    4. Advertising – These cookies will allow the website operator to gather personally identifiable information such as name, location & device you’re using to view the site.
  3. Subject Access Request – A user must be able to request that any data you hold about them is removed from your storage. With software like form submission storage, this is vital as if a data breach should occur after the user has requested their personal data be removed, you could be liable for a large sum of compensation.
