GDPR Compliance Made Easy
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a European regulation to provide EU citizens and residents with greater control of their personal data and to streamline the rules for international businesses working in Europe.
GDPR goes into effect May 25, 2018. GDPR affects all companies based in the EU as well as companies anywhere in the world that handle data related to EU residents.
A DPO is required for companies that handle large scale processing of data. The DPO’s role is to monitor the company’s compliance under GDPR and to communicate with the data protection authorities. ShareThis is working with a DPO.
A consent management platform (CMP) is a tool that collects and stores consented data as well as communicates the consent status of users and their cookies to other vendors within the CMP’s framework. It is customizable by the publisher and editable by the consumer.
