GDPR/CCPA/Privacy Management

When you run a business large or small, it doesn’t matter if you are trading millions or nothing at all, your website needs to be legally compliant.

All businesses need to notify the Office of the Information Commissioners and inform them that they are collecting data, which needs to be:

  • Used for specific purposes
  • Used in a way that is adequate, relevant and not excessive
  • The data needs to be accurate
  • Kept only for a certain period of time
  • Handled according to people’s data protection rights
