What does the GDPR mean for my website?

If your website is serving individuals from the EU and you - or embedded third party services like Google and Facebook - are processing any kind of personal data, you need to obtain prior consent from the visitor.

To obtain valid consent, you need to describe the extent and purpose of your data processing in plain language to the visitor, prior to processing any personal data.

This information must be available to the visitor at all times, e.g. as part of your privacy policy. You must also make available en easy way for the visitor to change or withdraw consent.

All consents must be logged as proof and all tracking of personal data, also by embedded third party services, must be documented, hereunder to which countries data is transmitted.

In order to facilitate this we can install Cookiebot on to your website.

How Cookiebot helps:

Using Cookiebot, you can automate GDPR compliance for your website on the requirements regarding tracking and consent.

Cookiebot enables you to monitor and document any kind of tracking on your website, display the relevant information to your website visitors and automatically obtain and log all user consents.

If you choose to go ahead with this we also recommend you have a SSL Certificate applied to your website, if you have not already done so. 

Please email us to give us the go ahead to install, Cookiebot, SSL certificate or both. Any further questions please don’t hesitate to phone on 01738 450422.
