GDPR adjustment of websites: what the GDPR is and what it provides

GDPR

Our GDPR Websites Adjustment Consultancy allows you to adapt your site or app to all the necessary obligations provided for by the new European privacy regulation. Through specific analysis, we will show you the necessary steps to put all aspects of your site in order to comply with the GDPR and avoid penalties.

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is the European regulation that governs the protection and security of personal data of individuals and their management. The GDPR provides for different obligations depending on the processing of personal data you carry out (e.g. a cookie policy, request for consent, security measures, etc. may be necessary).

The GDPR has been in force since 25 May 2018 and applies to all 28 member states of the European Union and to all non-EU subjects operating in those states. Failure to comply with the rules of the GDPR leads to penalties of up to 20 million euros or up to 4% of the worldwide annual turnover.

When it is useful consultation on the adjustment of the GDPR websites

The rules of the GDPR apply in all cases in which the processing of personal data is carried out, even in an automated way. It is necessary to adapt the site to the GDPR both if the website is created for commercial activity and for recreational purposes, regardless of whether the owner of the site is a company or a private individual.

Personal data means information that identifies or makes a natural person identifiable (for example, personal data, photos, social security number, IP address, email address, etc.), including sensitive data (for example relating to race, religion, political opinions, trade union membership, health, genetic data, etc.) and judicial data.

The processing of personal data means any operation such as the collection, storage, disclosure and cancellation of data, carried out even without the aid of electronic tools. For example, it is considered processing when you collect data through a form or when you track the habits of your users in an automated way through cookies.

Therefore, it is necessary to carefully check the treatments carried out by your website or app even when:

  • at least 1 data is collected directly or indirectly. For example, a site that does not carry out the processing directly could collect data through external services such as Google Analytics
  • the site does not ask users for any personal data but they themselves release them voluntarily (egg by sending their data by email)
