What changes do I need to do on my website to comply with the GDPR?
Maybe you've heard about it but you do not really know what implications it has for your company or business. I am referring to the new data protection law: the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) othat will be mandatory from this May 25th.
The main difference with the previous regulation is that now it is mandatory (previously they were rather recommendations on the protection of data from third parties). In fact, the fines can be to 4% of the annual turnover or even reach 20 million euros.
But once again, keep calm, Frucomedia to the rescue! Every website is a different world and each one of you will need to make certain changes in your sites (I will inform you which ones depending on your case), modifications that we will make in order to make your page comply with this new regulation).
But what is clear is that we will have to make changes related to:
  • WordPress: accounts / forms in comments.
  • Contact forms.
  • Forms of subscription to newsletters.
  • Registration data forms to buy in online stores.
  • Cookies and web analytics.
  • Drafting privacy policies / terms and conditions of use of the page.
From now on, you must notify whoever visits your website before beginning to collect personal data. All with concise and simple messages. Also, you will have to report the data that you are collecting and in what way you will use it. Also offer an easy and direct way to your users to revoke any given consent when they wish.
This rule applies to organizations located within the European Union and also to those that are outside but that process data of people residing in the EU, regardless of where that company is located.
Here you have a link with more information about the GDPR so that you can see everything that implies, both for companies that must comply and for users who access websites, online stores, etc.
And, any doubt, please don't hesitate to contact me!
