GDPR and cookies
Your website may need to adhere to european privacy laws even if you are not located in Europe – we can help!
Europe’s powerful privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, has strict rules meant to protect the privacy of people using the web in Europe, and backs up the rules with heavy penalties for those who do not comply. But while the law is overseen by regulators in Europe, it impacts website owners on a global scale because it governs how anyone, from anywhere, collects and processes the personal data of individuals who live in the European Union.
Put simply – if your website is accessible to anyone in Europe, you need to make sure it complies with all the GDPR privacy rules. That’s where CookieHub comes in.
What is GDPR?
The GDPR is the General Data Protection Regulation. Passed in 2016 and put into effect in 2018, this is widely considered to be the toughest privacy and security law in the world. Its complex provisions include rules that:
- Processing of personal information may be lawful, fair, and transparent
- Personal data can only be collected for legitimate purposes specified at the time it is gathered
- Only what is necessary can be collected and it can only be stored for as long as it is needed for a specific purpose
- All data that are stored must be accurate and up to date
- Proper security, integrity, and confidentiality must be applied to all personal data processing
- You must designate a data controller who is tasked with demonstrating full GDPR compliance
