Data privacy is a huge topic of discussion lately – and it’s not just about what’s been going on with Facebook.
Jason and Adrienne recently contributed a guest blog post for Grand Rapids Business Journal that explains GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), how it affects your business, and what you should do to make sure you’re in compliance as this new regulation becomes enforced in May.
(Hint: Talk to your legal counsel!)
“In short: The EUGDPR protects anyone who does business within the borders of the EU or does business with EU data subjects — and that is pretty much everyone in a digital world.”
While you might not think you have a lot of interaction with folks in the EU, chances are pretty good that you have done one or more of the following things:
- Experienced any online traffic with an EU resident
- Collected consumer-identifying data, in any capacity, of an EU resident
- Conducted any type of business with an EU data subject
- Targeted with online ads any EU data subject (intentionally or not)
