GDPR Compliance

General Data Protection Regulation

Effective May 25, 2018.
While on the surface you might feel GDPR has nothing to do with you in Australia, the servers on which websites are hosted collect data automatically. If you have traffic from an EU country, then that visitor’s IP address, browser, browser version, device information and pages they visit, how long they view those pages is collected and stored in logs. You can view this data via your cPanel/AWStats. 3rd party plugins (Forms, mailing lists etc) also collect Email addresses, names, phone numbers etc.
The EU can impose fines of up to €20 million for EU and non EU companies, for failure to comply.
