On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect, impacting every organization conducting business with individuals in the EU — consumers, employees and business contacts alike.
To help our customers to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation, we have developed some features in our Framework. We, firstly, launched these features in Movedo & Blade, we will do the same for each one of our themes.
When you visit a website, it may store information through your browser from specific services, usually in the form of cookies. There are required cookies for almost any website (server logs), cookies that do not collect personal information and third-party cookies (http://ec.europa.eu/ipg/basics/legal/cookies/index_en.htm)
We offer GDPR compliance features in a way that Website administrator, firstly, decides about the initial state of the cookies. Shortly, it’s on the administrator call which cookies and personal data will be loaded on the first page from external services (Google Maps, Google Analytics, Videos etc).
Moreover, the visitors have the possibility to alter their preferences by browsing through the site and come up one blocked service.
For example, if YouTube videos are blocked by the website administrator and a visitor want to watch one, then the last one will have to approve it through consent before any data is processed via YouTube.
We decided to provide fully control for both sides; website administrators and visitors of course. Looking forward for your valuable feedback to ensure that there is no need for 3rd party plugins on your way to GDPR compliance.
Websites owners and administrators are responsible for ensuring their own compliance with GDPR and any other law and regulation. We (Greatives) do not provide legal advice and do not warrant that our framework’s features will ensure that clients are in compliance with GDPR and/or any other law or regulation.
