How do I make my website GDPR compliant?

How do I make my website GDPR compliant?

GDPR comes into force on 25th May this year. So it is looming over us a bit now, but don’t panic, we’re here to help!

There are specific points you need to have covered on your website to meet the GDPR requirements.

One of the primary aims of GDPR is to alter the way we treat and handle personal data. It’s about being transparent, respectful and honest. There should not be any surprises or hidden agendas. In this way, your website should be open and clear about the data you are collecting and what you will do with it and how often the data subject could hear from you. Making your website is GDPR compliant essentially means ensuring you have things like this covered.

The Countdown is on…


Ok, so what do I need to do?

We have put together GDPR compliance services that we think will make life a little easier for you and meet the regulations:

  • If you don’t already have one, you will need an SSL certificate for your website to encrypt and secure data.( This also gives you that little padlock in the address bar which Google will be starting to warn browsers about if they visit a site without one.)
  • Every business, and website, will need to display a privacy policy that covers GDPR requirements. This is something we can help you write and upload to your website.
  • If you collect data on your website from contact forms or email/newsletters sign-ups, you will need to update your consent clauses so that the person giving you the data fully understands what they are signing up for. If you do tell them they are signing up for a newsletter, after the 25th May 2018 that is all you will be able to send them.
  • If you use Google Analytics or other SEO techniques, you will need to let your visitors know and ask for permission. This is what the cookie notices you will have seen on lots of other websites are all about.
  • If you use a database to send emailers, you may want to update your consents before the 25th May or at least remind them how they stop receiving communications from you in case they didn’t know.

We have put together a series of services to help you meet the GDPR with minimal fuss and cost.
