May 25th sees the UK, along with the rest of the EU, putting into force the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations). At this point all websites which collect personal data will need to be GDPR compliant. Despite the media hype, this needn’t be terrifying.

Fundamentally, you need to give some careful attention to your privacy policy. This may be a document individuals give a cursory glance to, if at all. However, by revamping your privacy policy in line with the GDPR, it’s an opportunity to be professional, boost your brand reputation, and also ensure you’re operating within the law.

You must ensure that your website privacy policy embraces the changes that the GDPR brings. You can’t simply forget about it, thinking no-one reads it. This strategy could come back round to haunt you.

The good news is that getting your website ready for GDPR needn’t be a cumbersome process involving costly legal advice.
