GDPR legislation for your website!Teamdigital
We have compiled a GDPR-list with the most important points for your website. We do not suspect that a witch-hunt will be organized immediately to small businesses, but … prevention is always better than cure. If you wish, we will investigate which adjustments are necessary for your website to comply with the GDPR legislation.
Ensure a secure connection via HTTPS
The GDPR legislation requires your website to use an SSL certificate. An SSL certificate provides optimal security between your website and the website visitor. If the URL of your website does not start with ‘https: //’, then your website is not yet in order for the GDPR legislation.
Provide a clear privacy statement
An important part of the GDPR legislation concerns the collection of personal data. By means of a privacy statement you must make clear to visitors of your website what happens to their personal data.
Keep your website safe and technically up-to-date
The GDPR legislation obliges you to always keep your website safe and technical up-to-date. In this way the personal data on your website are protected.
Protect personal data of customers and website visitors
The GDPR legislation obliges you to document who has access to the personal data in your website.
Be transparent when using forms
The GDPR legislation requires transparency in the use of forms on your website. A form usually contains different input fields to collect personal data. With the new legislation you can only request data that you actually need. You must also request permission to store and process the personal data entered.
Make the data of your website visitors anonymous for third parties.
The new legislation on GDPR obliges you to pay careful attention to who shares your personal data. For example, it is no longer allowed to process the IP addresses of your website visitors with Google Analytics.
