The purpose of the Regulation is to prevent and sanction any misuse of data on the Internet, which will greatly affect the online business.

Since the spring of 2018, many online businesses and stores have become increasingly involved in terms such as “private data“, “GDPR regulation” and “data protection“. If you have an e-mail address or use an application, program or any other software that requires logging in, you may have noticed an unusual increase in the number of emails and queries that make you accept the ability for the application (platform or service) to process and use your personal information.

So, welcome to the post-GDPR internet! A large number of non-lawyers have trouble aligning their online businesses with the new GDPR standards. This is why we give you the opportunity to educate yourself in some simple and easy way about some of the key segments of GDPR regulation that you need to pay attention to.

Given that the regulation is understandable mainly only to its creators and not to the business people who need to apply it, our intention is to bring it closer to those interested, simply to interpret it in order to implement it more quickly and consistently. However, do not treat this text as legal advice. Please consult a legal expert in the field of EU regulations on anything that might be confusing, and find out more about this regulation yourself by reading and researching from relevant sources.

Since May 2018, many online businesses have found themselves in a mass of insanity over European regulations that protect data from their citizens even outside the EU. The purpose of the Regulation is to prevent and sanction any misuse of data on the Internet, which will greatly affect the online business.

 

HOW TO ADAPT YOUR INTERNET OPERATION TO THE DATA PROTECTION DIRECTIVE?

In the context of websites and online businesses, GDPR means the legal protection of the personal data of people living in the European Union, wherever your online business is. If you use Google Analytics, Facebook, Pixel, or any other script that processes, stores, or sends data to a third party, here are just some of the things you need to synchronize.

 

1.SSL

First of all, internet security is the most important thing on this list. If your website is prone to hacking or any other abuse, it is imperative that you integrate an SSL certificate into your site.

 

Not only will SSL help you rank better on Google due to a recent algorithm update (SEO optimization), but its presence will also make it clear to your clients that you are respecting their private information by adding a HTTPS prefix to the url, further enhancing the authority of your website and company.

Technically speaking, this “socket” encrypts the traffic coming from your web browser and website via HTTPS, which is of particular importance especially for web shops that have online payment options.

 

2.COOOKIES ACCESS (cookies)

While consent is a GDPR keyword, we must emphasize that even when users of your site consent to data processing, they can withdraw that consent at any time, at any time, and to file a lawsuit with a breach of privacy.

 

However, in order to show users that you care about them, you should first, in collaboration with your legal advisor (EU parvo expert), draft privacy policy, cookie rules and terms of use and prominently highlight them on your site. The next step is to add a pop-up (pop-up alert) or banner to ask visitors whether they accept cookies or consent to store and store their personal information. What many websites have not yet accepted is that adding just one “I ACCEPT” button is not GDPR compliant, but that there must be a choice as to whether the user wants any of the data to be used or processed by you or a third party product. Therefore, the best option would be to code the script to help the user manually manage the cookie settings and continue to browse your web pages.

 

3. WORDPRES

If your website uses the most popular CMS in the world, in which case you can download and install your free GDPR-compliant plug-in to help you configure the page about: privacy policy, data processing, cookie consent management, secret tokens data subject and more. This plug-in is very useful and can help you get familiar with the regulation, so hopefully it will serve you well.
