What’s involved in complying with the General Data Protection Rules?

If you’ve been getting up to speed with the EU’s new General Data Protection Rules (GDPR), you might just have wondered

Cookies on your website? There’s a good chance you’ll need to disclose them to comply with the GDPR.

what it will take to get compliant.

One answer, of course, is that might not need to. If you don’t trade in the EU and hold no personal data from anyone within the EU, the GDPR doesn’t affect your business. However, Australian and New Zealand businesses can expect to have to upgrade their privacy practices when data regulations in those countries are revised. Streamline thinks that making yourself compliant with GDPR is a great way to get ahead of those new regulations.

If you do opt for compliance, here’s a taste of what it might look like. These are some of the steps the streamline team is taking to meet GDPR:

  • Advising visitors to our website that we track their visit using cookies and third-party analytical tools. This advisory will take the form of a pop-up presented when you first view the site.
  • Revising our terms and conditions document.
  • Updating our privacy policy.
  • Collaborating with customers for whom we hold the personal data of people within the European Union to ensure interactions with those people are GDPR-compliant.
