GDPR and websites
What is the GDPR?
Do I need to read this if my company and website are not from the EU or California?
What are some of the regulations that will affect my website?
They have a broad definition of personal data.
They aim to increase transparency.
They require you to get clear consent when asking for personal data.
They make the individual the owner of his personal data.
They allow individuals to ask for their data back.
They set deadlines.
They hold you accountable.
The CCPA has a maximum fine of $7,500 for intentional violations. Violations lacking intent have a $2,500 maximum fine. The GDPR’s penalties are even more sobering: If you fail to fulfill an EU citizen’s data request on time, you can be fined up to 20 million euros or 4% of your annual turnover, whichever is greater.
