Mieke is a WordPress developer at AppSaloon, who teaches web development at Syntra. She is fascinated by the animations that are possible with CSS and jQuery and the speed by which a React framework manipulates content within the view. Mieke likes to learn new things. That's why she has been studying the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
GDPR no longer needs an introduction. It is omnipresent, from the many information evenings to the explanations on radio and TV. Everyone has an opinion about “GDPR”. This comes as no surprise because the impact of this regulation is difficult to underestimate.
Starting 25 May 2018 all companies that process personal data of EU citizens are obliged to be GDPR compliant, and personal data covers a broad spectrum! An IP address, cookies or Twitter feeds are also classified as personal data. The penalties for non-compliance with GDPR are very high. Reason enough to ensure that you take the necessary steps to make your website GDPR Ready. And we want to help you with this!
