The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect on May 25, 2018, and my inbox is flooded with emails from Google, ConvertKit, Etsy, Typeform, and all the other services I use for my business, telling me how they are changing their policies in order to comply. It got me thinking about my own website and whether or not I need to update my policies.
Have you been wondering the same thing? Or are you just deleting those emails thinking this is something for businesses much larger than yours? Or perhaps you have no idea what the GDPR is . . . in either case, you should to keep reading. I’m going to tell you how to make sure your website complies with the new regulations and stays compliant, for life!
But first, let me tell you a little story about how my business website may have been breaking the law . . . or maybe not. We’ll never know.
