Get ready for the new European privacy legislation.
Herewith a short update on the AVG. We get a lot of questions about the new General Data Protection Regulation (AVG). We have therefore briefly listed all the points for SharpSpring. SharpSpring is fully GDPR compliant by the May 25 deadline and we want to make compliance easier for you as well.
Here are some resources to help you prepare for GDPR in advance:
The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
How the GDPR Impacts SharpSpring and You
GDPR: Why It Matters & What We're Doing
To best serve partners and partners' customers, sharpspring is making sure they are fully GDPR-proof. SharpSpring is working on the following items:
SharpSpring feature enhancements
Privacy Shield Certification
Updated terms & license agreements
Data processing agreement
It's more important than ever to prove how customers got into your database and in what ways they interact with you. To help, there are some GDPR-friendly changes in the 'pipeline' for forms, landing pages and export tools. These updates include new options to collect and prove consent, as well as options for deleting data when consent is withdrawn.
As a SharpSpring customer with The Blue Hour, we also ask that you sign the new new terms and conditions in SharpSpring. These terms describe your obligations for importing, exporting and deleting personal data from SharpSpring. This must be signed into all accounts by May 25. So be alert!
Data Processing Agreement
There is also a Data Protection Agreement/Data Protection Act (DPA) for SharpSpring's EU partners (such as The Blue Hour). The Data Protection Agreement will evaluate the data management duties of both SharpSpring and SharpSpring's partners under GDPR. In this way, you can be assured that we handle our customers' data correctly.
