Blue Whale Media are pleased to announce that long term client Tailor Train is now in full compliance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulations.

The regulations ensure the absolute protection of personal data shared between user and website, affording the user advanced options when it comes to the use of their data.

As a web design Warrington agency dedicated to helping businesses of all sizes, we are currently improving existing clients’ and anyone else’s website that needs attention in order to be GDPR compliant.

So, what is GDPR?

GDPR- What Exactly is it?

GDPR, in its simplest terms is a stricter set of rules regarding data protection. When visitors reach a website, they share data with it simply by accessing the page. Not everyone is aware of the fact their personal data is being shared and the GDPR legislation seeks to remedy this.

The main components of the GDPR regulations are:

  • When a user reaches your website, you must tell them exactly who you are.
  • When required, get a clear consent before collecting any type of data.
  • Allow users to access their own data and give them option to take it with them.
  • Give users the option to delete their data from your website.
  • If a breach does occur, you must inform the user of said breach.

Each of these regulations are subject to degrees and circumstance but they are the basic principles of the GDPR ruling.

Who Are Tailor Train and Why Do They Need to Be Compliant?

Tailor Train are a business transformation and business procurement consultancy that help businesses improve the way in which they function in order to increase efficiency, profits, sales and other positive areas of business.

It is massively important for a company such as Tailor Train, that they are as safe and secure as they can possibly be. This is due to the fact they handle sensitive data from businesses day in day out- data that if in the wrong hands could be detrimental to businesses.

Every Business Needs to Be GDPR Compliant

It is hugely important that every business is GDPR Compliant not just organisations such as Tailor Train. Failing to be GDPR compliant can bring with it a hefty price tag, the European Union reserves the right to fine non compliant website’s up to 4% global revenue.

You may be thinking that the impending activation of article 50 will exclude your website from the EU’s ruling. Well that is in fact not the case, if your website is going to be accessed by even one member of the EU- then you can be penalised.
