Is your website GDPR compliant?

With  the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force on 25th May it's important that you make sure that your website complies with the new data protection laws.

Download the checklist here.

If you already have an it'seeze website that's great news because it’seeze are taking several steps to help you become GDPR compliant by 25th May

  • Providing all clients who have a domain registered with it’seeze with a free SSL certificate. If your website domain is not currently registered with us, please contact Brian at it'seeze Camberley who can arrange this for you.
  • Revising your website’s cookie notice. Your website visitors will have the option to opt in or out of cookie use when they browse your site.
  • Adding a checkbox to the blog comments component. Visitors to your blog will now have to consent to having their name and comment published on your website before they submit their comment.
  • Modifying data access permissions for standard online shops. For a standard Commerce website, your customers will be able to see what data you hold on them and will be able to to download and delete this data.
  • Updating the privacy policy page. This will cover how data is stored and processed within the it’seeze website editor and will inform your visitors of the different cookies in use on your site. If you do not currently have a privacy policy page on your it’seeze website, we will add this for you.

What do you need to do to make your it’seeze website compliant before 25th May?

  • Update your privacy policy page according to your individual data processing including what personal data your business collects through your website, what you use it for, how you store it and for how long for, and who you share it with.
  • Delete any data stored on your website that you no longer need to keep. If you have an it'seeze website and have set your website contact forms to store enquiries in lists, this will be saving personal data to your website. 

Please note: This checklist does not constitute legal advice, nor does it contain an exhaustive list of everything you need to do to achieve full GDPR compliance. We would advise that you consult a solicitor or a certified GDPR practitioner if you have any concerns about how this new legislation will affect your business.
