What does that mean for you? If you own a small business and have a website it affects you (and me!).
The information is vast and detailed. The best online explanation of all that I rely on can be found over on BlogAid: GDPR Guide.
I’ll be honest it is a lot to wrap your head around. I am actively doing the same for myself and my sites.
That is where I want to help you get your ducks in a row as quickly and painlessly as possible. That is why I’ve created a few services to help you with this.
A few important points to be clear on before moving forward:
- The information I share above and elsewhere is applicable to United States based businesses who do the bulk of their business in the U.S. but may have some EU and international clients and site visitors.
- I am not a lawyer and nothing I say should or can be construed as legal advice. If you have specific compliance questions related to your business, I advise you to consult a qualified lawyer.
- I am vested in your success and can bridge the gap between business practices and technology and explaining how things work together.
- I strongly advise you to research GDPR on your own and consult with a certified legal professional in regards to your decision to comply or defy GDPR.
