Today we’re doing a GDPR PRO review, looking at GDPR requirements & how to achieve GDPR compliance.
The GDPR PRO plugin is used on any WP site that’s not compliant with the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation, better known as the GDPR.
GDPR PRO ReviewIt’s May 25th, the day that the EU’s new data protection regulation, GDPR, comes into force. Like me, you have probably been buried with gloom & doom e-mails. I am hidden in the northwestern woods of Montana, and I have received dozens of e-mails, videos that threaten coming destruction & enormous fines to pay! You would think it was the Millennium Bug of 2000 all over again! Better known as the computer consultant’s retirement program?)
Here’s the great news: getting your WordPress site into GDPR compliance can be simplified by downloading and installing the GDPR PRO plugin, doing a few settings, and editing the provided policy text files. That’s all there’s to it, and that is what this GDPR PRO review covers.
The underlying issue is one of consent. Under GDPR requirements, you’re legally obligated to make certain that you have a good reason for holding onto & using a person’s data. This is referred to in the legislation as the “legitimate interest.”
What’s GDPR Compliance?
For marketers using email lists, the most relevant issue is that the individual has given their explicit & informed consent to your collecting their data.
Bottom line: that tiny check-box or oddly worded phrase with a default-to-yes checkbox is not going to cut it any longer. Under GDPR requirements, you need to explain in clear, concise language exactly why a client’s data is being gathered, and how you are going to use it.GDPR PRO Review
There are seven basic GDPR requirements:
— Terms and Conditions policy
— Cookie permission & management
— Data access requirement
— Right to be forgotten necessity
— Data breach notification requirement
— Data rectification system
This all sounds like a pain, right? And that is why all the panic has set in. But rest easy: as we cover in this GDPR PRO review, the GDPR PRO plugin makes this all easy. It will take just minutes to bring your website to GDPR compliance. Additionally, the plug-in includes training to be certain you & any staff are fully up to speed on GDPR requirements. (And do not forget to check out my bonus, with even more GDPR support materials.)
How GDPR PRO works
Once they hit the Submit button, the visitor is added to a list that notes his/her first name & last name, email, indication that consent was given, and the date and time of consent. The list can be easily downloaded to .csv to import into an auto-responder. All the information is easily changed within the plug-in.
We can choose to look at GDPR compliance as too much regulation, or (in a more positive vein) as an opportunity to build a deeper, more trusting relationships with our clients. The important word here is transparency, something all people should have been doing all along.
We need to be accountable to the customers whose data we hold, and GDPR takes us closer to that goal. Clients should feel more comfortable about giving up data when it’s explained to them how their data is going to be used…that’s only human nature kicking in.
Don’t forget: as of May 25th, 2018, every website has to be GDPR -compliant! Downloading and installing the GDPR PRO plug-in, and watching the included training, is a great first step to better list management.
