GDPR

Hands up who hasn’t heard of the dreaded GDPR? 

The regulations are intended to give the people who interact with you and your site more control over their data. For authors, this means making various changes to your site and mailing list. 

If you’d like us to handle this for you, take a look below.

How we’ll help

Firstly, please understand that we’re not lawyers, but this is our interpretation of the actions recommended for making your site and email marketing GDPR compliant

Cookie Consent

Although the cookie regulations have been in place for some time and haven’t affected most author sites, it now makes sense to implement a cookie permission form.

Privacy Policy

GDPR adds new requirements to your privacy policy and the simplest approach is to replace your existing one with a policy that is, we believe, compliant with the new regulations.

Email Opt-in

GDPR requires both explicit and active consent. What this means is that the subscriber must be in no doubt what they’re signing up for and must have to take action to indicate their consent.

What we will do
