What is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into force on May 25th, 2018, aims to protect the fundamental right to privacy and the protection of personal data of European Union (EU) citizens.
This regulation affects any entity (including websites) that processes EU citizens' personal data. Whether or not you or your business is located in the EU, if you have EU site visitors, or if your marketing campaigns target EU citizens, this affects you.
What does the GDPR mean for you?
Transparency and communication with your site visitors are key elements of the GDPR. As part of the new regulation, you must let your site visitors know how you collect, store, and use their data, in a clear and transparent way. In addition, you must comply with your site visitors' requests to receive a copy of their data that is processed on your site.
Here's a link to an article I found on Wix that can help you comply with the new rules (you do not have to have a Wix website for this). Want it done for you? Call me at 317.586.8708 or email "email@example.com."
