CompsaOnline adapts your website to the new General Data Protection Regulation.
At CompsaOnline we adapt your website to the new Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) so you do not have to worry about anything and avoid the sanctions.
Complying with the GDPR will be mandatory for any professional who collects data from an European resident starting on May 25th 2018
You must fulfill this regulation if:
- You collect any type of visitor data from your website (such as the IP address that Google Analytics collects).
- Products, infoproducts, training or services are being sold on your website.
- You have contact forms on your website.
- You have comments enabled in your posts.
- You collect subscriber data.
You must comply with the GDPR if your customers, visitors or subscribers can be European residents even if your business is located outside the European Union.

What is the GDPR
The GDPR is the regulation that affects both large and small corporations, many of them being very active in the collection of user data.
It is mandatory for all companies from the European Union since May 25th 2018 and provides greater control and security to the citizens regarding their personal information in the 2.0 world.
The GDPR expands the citizens’ rights on deciding how they want their data to be treated and how they want to receive information from companies.
The rights of the interested party have been extended in the European regulations for protection. The consent for the processing of data can no longer be tacit, it must be an affirmative statement.
Companies are not allowed to use incomprehensible terms or conditions full of legalities anymore. The terms of the forms must be easy to understand, clear and concise for each purpose, especially for commercial purposes.
The GDPR and the Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD) pointed out that the negligence and unwillingness to comply proactively with data protection regulations will be punished toughly with fines up to 20 million Euros or 4% of the company’s turnover.
Any attack launched globally is able to attack even small business. If this happens and there is loss of personal data, you will have to prove to the AEPD that your company had previously taken the necessary security measures in order to avoid the violation of the rights and freedoms of individuals.
