Summary

With General Data Protection Regulation less than 12 months away there is a legal requirement for all businesses to have taken the necessary steps for adherence.

Campaign and Digital Intelligence Limited as developers of the CANDDi software is no exception to this and is compliant.

 

Introduction

The “General Data Protection Regulation” (GDPR), set to come into effect in May 2018, is European Legislation set to replace the 19-year-old Data Protection Act (1998).

In this series of FAQs, we will seek to provide a summary of GDPR and discuss areas of compliance and opportunities presented as a result of the legislation. This will be discussed with a specific focus on CANDDi*, the website analytics tool.

To use the CANDDi software there are certain requirements. However, once adopted CANDDi will be in a position to assist with broader legal obligations including, but not limited to; Subject Access Requests and Data Cleansing.
