Doing business under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

You may have noticed a surprising amount of emails in your inbox in the last month about new and updated privacy policies. This is one of the many effects the United Kingdom’s GDPR bill is having on all of us.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most extensive data protection overhaul Europe has seen in generations, and it’s implications effect all consumers and companies globally.

GDPR Readiness: Creating a Data Privacy Plan, goes over the contents of the data privacy plan, details various policy procedures that need to be written in detail, talks about privacy training, and more.
You probably have some questions like… How does this affect my food business? Canadian Privacy Law already dictates we are safe as long as we include opt out consent. Though the GDPR is a privacy overhaul centered in Europe, it’s implications affect businesses, consumers and how data is collected worldwide. Do you know if your organization is compliant? We can help ensure you are!

Failing to comply with the GDPR may result in:

  • Fines of up to 4% of your annual sales or $31 million CAD, whichever is greater

  • Penalties including bans on data processing & compulsory audits
