New legislation has been passed by the EU that intends to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force from 25th May 2018 and is designed to protect the privacy of EC citizens, ensure their personal data is not exported outside the EU and give them control of how the data is used.
The GDPR Data Protection Officer for our customers’ CRM systems will be the same as under current UK and EC legislation, that is an officer of the customer that owns the data. The Data Processor will be Really Simple Systems.
Really Simple Systems is investigating the requirements for compliance and looking to implement changes to our CRM. It is our intention to make our CRM fully compliant in advance of the new legislation. The phase 1 development for compliance, Mailing Consent Lists, is now available for customers using the Advanced Marketing module.
For for more information about existing UK, EC and the future GDPR legislation and compliance, please contact our CEO, John Paterson, via firstname.lastname@example.org.
