This post on GDPR is originally sent as an email
It’s Annalyn, and I know that receiving this email in your inbox is kind of surprising. It’s either we previously worked together. Or we are currently working together on your website or some other projects.
I’ve meant to write you a regular email. Just sending some updates about Neatly Commented Web Studios. Or some topic that I know will be helpful for you while running your business.
This time I want to talk about GDPR. It will also include what I did so that our website follow the European Law, GDPR in particular.
I know that you are already bombarded with emails on GDPR today. We’ve been hearing about General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for the last couple of months via email, blog postings, Facebook statuses and anywhere on the Internet. And yet, not all online business owners know or heard about it, even some of my clients.
For those of you who are still having trouble understanding what GDPR means, it is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within Europe and the European Economic Area.
I know what you’re thinking right now. We’re not in Europe, why do we need that?
This law addresses the export of personal data outside the EU and EEA. GDPR also protects European who are outside their country.
When I saw my Google Analytics that I have visitors from Europe, I know that I need my website to comply with this law too.
Some wrote a simple text telling their visitors if they keep personal information and how they use it. It is all about transparency, and it’s great to know what the businesses are doing with our data.
Some ask their lawyers to create one for them.
