Website Compliance

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Are you compliant for GDPR?

What you can do if the answer is no?

First of all, don't worry. Designs on the Web can help if your website is NOT compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which began to be enforced in May 2018. Your website must demonstrate adherence to the 7 Principles that govern Data Collection Practices as set down by the GDPR. These privacy measures are required for all websites that collect personal information within EU Member states.

We strongly advise that you take measures to ensure compliance is met in order to protect your business. Having a non compliant business in violation of the new GDPR ruling puts your business at risk of a substantial fine. Making your site compliant is required for the health of your business. Designs on the Web can help.
