About Compliance and Consent
What is compliance and consent, and how does it affect me?
Compliance is the action of ensuring that your processes and policies are within the bounds of the regulations that you and/or your clients are operating within. We provide a wide array of tools to assist you in meeting your individual compliance goals. (Such as the ability to customize the Terms of Service, Guest Data Points collected, Content Filter, Integrations and Time Controls)
Consent is the act of the Guest agreeing to participate in the activity thats clearly outlined in the request for consent. (Such as enrolling in a Newsletter, Contest, Feedback Request, etc.)
What is the GDPR?
European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) was created with the purpose of regulating the way EU citizens’ personal data is protected by companies, and of replacing the current Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC.
Organizations that operate within the EU or that process EU citizens’ data must adapt their technology methodologies and policies to the new Regulation and become compliant.
Note: If you are not located in the EU, or conduct any business in the EU, you do not have to adhere to the GDPR, but may choose to still add a layer of data privacy and extra Guest Opt-In.
