The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR for short) have been published to protect the consumer by prescribing certain standards for those that collect and retain your on-line data. Please accept, that our implementation of these rules, does not in any way constitute professional advice or direction to your implementation ~ but is only provided as information on how we have complied with GDPR rulings. In a nutshell, you may not rely on this as legal advice, or as a recommendation of any particular legal understanding.
GDPR for short is built around key principles.
Customer or individual consent has been redefined and become much tighter. Requests for consent (an example ~ to be added to an eMail marketing database) can no longer be hidden in small print but must be presented clearly, and separately to other policies on the website or "Opt-IN" pop-up forms, so no more pre-ticked or assumption boxes. Consent may not be required for pre-existing personal data, as long as you have a legal basis of retention, that’s compliant with the current legislation (the DPA). The principle here is that inactivity is no longer a legitimate way to confirm consent!
