GDPR. What is it and how to adapt your website

What is the GDPR and what goes to regulate

The General Data Protection Regulation, or the GDPR is the regulation established by the European Commission designed to protect users who provide their personal data, but above all it serves to regulate the use of these same data for different purposes.
Breaking and not applying the provisions dictated by the GDPD can result in very high fines and can compromise you to the point of having to close your website without the possibility of being able to go back. This is why it is very important that you know the rules that make up this regulation, so that you can structure your website taking them into account.
GDPR

Privacy policy

The Privacy Policy is very important and is the basis of being able to adapt your website to the GDPR. Privacy Policy means a series of indications relating to the data, which are collected, who collects them, how they are used, how they will be stored and whether they will be left to third parties and to what extent they can use them. In short, it’s a way for users who visit your site to consciously decide whether they want to use your website by giving their consent to the use of the data or not. Personal data means all data such as name, e-mail address, photo, IP address etc etc that can then be processed, or stored and used for processing and any operations that have this same data as the raw material.

How to begin to adapt your website through the privacy policy

Once the data, their processing and the privacy policy are established, it is necessary to begin to adapt your website so that all users who visit it can give their unequivocal consent. It goes without saying that it will no longer be possible to obtain a default consent and that all the modules on the website will have to be adapted to allow them to give their consent knowingly, and without the possibility of being able to say that they did not have it.


So, you have to start paying close attention to the modules on your website so that each one of them presents a check to have them confirm that they can retain and use their personal data. In addition, you will need to create a log-in to allow them to register and access a platform supported by a detached and internal database for storing all the data, so that they can be permanently deleted if the user manifests this will .


Once the platform has been set up in this sense, you will have to implement the service with a system to verify the data of those who visit your site in such a way as to alert them with a notification if they are violated, or are carried out, for example, access to the site. regulated or not. By combining the platform with a software that works in this sense, it will be possible to memorize the data and be able to track any activity carried out by those who administer the site, so as to find out any illicit and protect 100% of the users who give their consent to the processing of data, and they will know they can use the site without worries, having provided the data to a secure system in all respects.

The Privacy Policy model adapted to the GDPR

If you have not already done so you will need to adapt your privacy policy model according to the GDPR regulation. There are facsimiles from which to take inspiration, but each model must be inherent to the website taken into consideration and therefore varies according to the contents, the modalities and the typology of the inherent site. This, at times annoying, is the task of the website owner who obviously can get help from a professional on the subject to draft it, indeed it is a recommended choice, but you must be able to get your hands on it to be 100% sure that an inherent job is done to the site under consideration.

To implement a good privacy policy model appropriate to the GDPR, you must enter the necessary information on how the data will be managed and on the entire privacy policy. Therefore, also information concerning the processing of data, how security will be managed, any default by both parties, what the users’ rights are, how the plugins relating to the various social networks will be implemented, but above all how to the use of cookies and the relative consents will be regulated.

What you need to know about cookies

Cookies can be of various types. Generally speaking, they are text strings that are used to memorize preferences through the user’s data in order to address it on a path rather than another and make its navigation easier and more comfortable. Therefore, it is very important that the user always has the possibility to give his consent to the use of these, perhaps by creating a simple pop-up screen that reminds him to give his consent. As already mentioned, there are other types of cookies such as the so-called cookies used by the browser to better manage the data through instantaneous operations related to storage and processing. Finally, there are cookies from third parties, or those text strings connected to other websites related to your use and which come into play having shared data. In any case, cookies play a fundamental role for the proper functioning of your website, and it is therefore very important to manage them according to the GDPR regulations to avoid unpleasant incidents.
