FEEL4 deals with improvement. Therefore website development is a subject that aligns nicely. Websites always need to improve to keep up with constant changes.

One of the biggest changes affecting websites at the moment is the new regulations regarding the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

I am passionate about website development so I created myself a FEEL4 path to follow. This path quickly brings me up to speed with the regulations and what website info needs adding or amending.

Follow my path if you also have the same focus, it will save you a lot of time.

FEEL4 PATH

FOCUS

I am focusing on understanding what I have to do to a website to adhere to the GDPR regulations and I want to do this as soon as is practically possible.

ENERGIZE

I feel energized to do this so that I can feel confident in advising clients who come to me. I also want to make sure that I am not at risk of any fines that could be imposed as a result of not complying to the GDPR rules.

ENGAGE & LEARN

I am engaging and learning things via the following actions:

1. I am engaging with finding out the key information that I need to be aware of and I am doing this by searching the internet:

1.1 I am learning that the GDPR law became enforceable in all EU countries on Friday, 25 May 2018 and I have two years to comply.

1.2 I am learning that these are the best website resources to find out all there is to know about GDPR regulations:
Intersoft Consulting Guidance >>>
Information Commissioner’s Office >>>

1.3 I am learning that you can process data as either a “controller” or a “processor” or “both” and different rules can apply. I am learning THIS LINK teaches me which one/s I am and what I have to do.

1.4 I am learning that even countries outside of Europe have to adhere to GDPR if they are holding client information related to European residents.

2. I am engaging with creating a basic default copy and paste paragraph that I can paste into a website’s legal page so it complies:

GDPR Compliance | Privacy & Security – This website complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulation as set out HERE. It does this by adhering to the advice supplied by the Information Commissioner’s Office as set out HERE. It is very important to note that by viewing pages and clicking the links of this website you are consenting to your involvement with the GDPR regulations such as the use and management of your personal information. Any queries you have relating to this law should be made clear by contacting us. If you do not agree with our policies please opt out by not visiting this website anymore once you are satisfied all your data queries have been dealt with.

3. I am engaging with finding and adding a WordPress plugin that will provide a discreet alert for people visiting a website to see.

3.1 I am learning that THIS PLUGIN is perfect and recommended.

Final Notes…

I have to point out that I am not a specialist in the area of GDPR and so you should take any advice given in this path as suggestive only and that you will also need to do your own due diligence to make sure you comply with all of the rules and regulations related to GDPR.

I hope though that seeing my path improves your situation by saving you time searching around looking for what needs to happen with with GDPR and your own website.

    Loving the website Christian, I build websites and have just realised this GDPR thing is not going away. It’s great to be able to copy your path. One question – do you have to show a ‘Disagree’ option on the pop up alert people see when they land on the website? Or can you just show ‘Agree’?

      Hey John, thanks for the complement it really helps keep the positive energy going. Regarding the “Disagree” option, yes, from what I have read you have to give people the option to disagree. There are different ways you can link that “Disagree” button. You can simply take it away from the website or depending on the plugin/software you are using to manage your alerts, you can set it so that the disagree button when pressed will stop collecting user information.
