What is GDPR?

Stands for General Data Protection Regulation

It is the biggest regulation of data protection for years. The EU decided to design a complete regulation about the way we collect, store and use data in today’s digital world.
Essentially, they wanted to give people more control over their data and have tougher penalties for those who don’t comply either deliberately or negligently.

Who does the GDPR apply to?

everyone who runs an online business

Even if you think this isn’t you because you don’t actively collect emails for newsletters, you’re wrong. If you have EU clients/customers and hold any of their personal identifying information, then it applies.
Note – Brexit is unlikely to affect GDPR.

But wait! what is personal data?

Any online identifiers like IP address, names, addresses, bank account details etc.

The official definitions is: ‘personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

What will happen if your website doesn’t comply?

nothing will happen straight away

But you need to take into consideration the risks of violating GDPR. First of all, there are economic consequences, huge fines from the authorities and compensations from individuals. It can harm your company’s reputation, damage the trust and bring negative publicity. Finally, these can lead to loose customers and partners. 

Yes! This is what I have been looking for.
