How do I make sure I meet GDPR requirements?

GDPR came into effect on the 25th of May 2018

From that date onwards, collection and use of data of a personal nature have been framed within the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

All the information you’ll find on this page is for informative purposes only and is limited to those aspects that apply to our solutions.

Can I continue to send my email marketing campaigns to my existing contact list?
GDPR applies not only to data collected after the 25th of May 2018, but also to any data collected before this date! If you already have proof of consent, you have nothing to worry about! If not, or if the user in question has not given his or her permission, you will have to obtain opt-in consent again.
What happens if an individual who has been profiled demands not to be?
According to Article 19, use of these data must cease immediately unless the company can prove the the individual’s request goes beyond his interests, rights and freedoms.
Does GDPR allow for the purchase of lists of contacts?
While it is true that certain lists of contacts, obtained with a clear positive consent act at the moment of inscription, may be authorized under GDPR… this practice is not recommendable.

Impact on key marketing processes

What is now prohibited in terms of consent collection

Opt-out: refers to having to opt out after being automatically registered when registering for any service.

Passive opt-in: consists of pre-checking default boxes such as “I want to receive offers” or a drop-down menu that defaults to “yes”.

What is allowed and required

Opt-ins and double opt-ins: to guarantee legally valid express consent, the request must be clear and precise. And creating a second confirmation to opt to receive campaigns is always a good idea!

The unsubscribe link should be clearly visible in every email you send.

Storing of proof of consent: you must be able to retrieve the consent obtained for each individual and this must be done according to the principle of responsibility required by GDPR.

HOW EULERIAN PROVIDES THE SOLUTION IN 4 KEY STEPS

We ensure that Internet users can object at any time to their personal data being processed by Eulerian Technologies.

We provide an unsubscribe link, available on our interface so it can be immediately added to your website. Should you need assistance with this kind of process, our account management teams are here to help.

The “Consent Management Platform” tool allows you to configure the time limit for storage of cookies and the information collected by the cookies within a limit a of 13 months from the moment the user’s consent was collected (or subsequently collected again).

We recommend you keep within this limited cookie-storage period in order to regularly remind your clients of the existence of cookies and to comply with their right to opposition to tracking or their right to be forgotten, should they so wish.

Minimize your unnecessary or outdated data by erasing what you no longer need.

One of the impacts of GDPR on businesses is a new philosophy as regards data, how they are collected and used. We recommend you clear out any inactive contacts or unsubscribed users and any other data you will no longer be using.

Here at Eulerian we have appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO) who is in charge of GDPR compliance.

To contact our DPO, just send an email to: dpo@eulerian.com

We also recommend you appoint a DPO to manage the process of becoming GDPR compliant.
