GDPR Compliance

In 2016, the EU passed the General Data Protection Regulation, more commonly called the GDPR. It went into effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR applies if your business collects privacy information from people who visit your website or attend in-person events, and any of those people are EU residents. You may think you don’t have to comply because your business is in the US. How do you know where the person resides who enters her name and email address into a contact form on your website? The penalties are stiff – up to $25 million US or 4% of your global intake – so it’s better to comply than risk the consequences. States here in the US, such as California, are also starting to implement privacy laws similar to the GDPR, so it’s a good idea to get used to the new world of online privacy. You can contact me for a consultation about your GDPR needs. You can also purchase a GDPR-compliant privacy policy template for your website. If you have already have a privacy policy, you can purchase a template to make it GDPR compliant, as well.  Both templates are listed below, as well as a video with an overview of GDPR.

GDPR-Compliant Privacy Policy Template: A complete privacy policy template that is GDPR compliant. You just complete a few sections for it to be specific to your company and website. $150

GDPR Compliance Template: If you already have a privacy policy, this template will add language that makes your policy compliant with GDPR. $100
