General Data Protection Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a set of data protection laws that came into effect on 25th May 2018. Though it’s set out by the European Union, it effects companies that hold the data of EU citizens or that trade in Europe, which means that most of the world is affected by it! It’s important that your website is GDPR compliant, otherwise you could face a hefty fine of 4% of your annual turnover.

  • All companies must be GDPR compliant as of 25th May 2018
  • It protects EU members’ personal data
  • Non-compliance involves hefty fines

What does GDPR cover?

GDPR covers basically any information that could identify a specific person - this includes names, contact details like addresses and phone numbers, email addresses, computer locations, race and sexual orientation.

How does GDPR affect my website?

If your website allows customers to purchase items, have an account, or subscribe to a mailing list, then these all must be GDPR compliant. Ask your web developer about this to make sure you are legally collecting and storing information. If you’re concerned, contact a lawyer.
