What Everybody Ought to Know About GDPR and Web Analytics - Free Webinar to Download

Watch our webinar and get to know how to collect, store and use your web analytics data in a GDPR-compliant manner.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on May 25, 2018. It means that there’s not too much time left for you to prepare for the new EU law. And chances are high that you should start doing so, even if you’re located outside the EU.

That’s because GDPR will impact not only EU-based entities, but virtually every organization dealing with individuals (a.k.a. data subjects) within the European Union–both data controllers (e.g. companies) and data processors (e.g. cloud-software vendors).

So, if you want to avoid heavy fines (in some cases as high as 4% of your company’s yearly turnover or 20 mln euro, whichever is higher), you should definitely rethink the way you collect, store and use customer and visitor data. That will also include your web analytics data.

We’re aware that the whole topic may seem overly complex or even troublesome. That’s why we decided to help you wrap your head around the most important rules of GDPR, and give you some guidance on technical aspects of complying with the new data privacy regulation.

For that reason we created webinar called Web Analytics vs. GDPR.

You’ll learn:

  • Why you need Data Protection Officer in your organization.
  • What the Right to be Forgotten is and how to provide it.
  • How the rules for consent will change under new privacy regulations.
  • How to make sure that your clients can freely exercise Data Subject Rights.
  • …and much more!

We value your time, so we decided to record our webinar and give you a chance to watch it anytime you want. All you have to do is click this box:
