GDPR compliance advice

GDPR – concerning Direct Debit payments.

Data Protection Changes coming via GDPR.
On 28th May 2018, the Data Protection Act – GDPR – is being updated by European legislation known as the General Data Protection Regulation. It essentially governs the permission, storage and use of personal data.

The GDPR applies to any organisation that conducts business within the EU and as we are still part of the EU, this applies to all legal entities from this May. Brexit may change the legislation but until then we feel it is safer to comply with this directive now.

This document discusses GDPR in terms of Direct Debit payment collection only, but the full scope is much wider than this as it relates to any personal information held by a company.

Free Sample website brief and tender document download

Sample website brief/tender download
As a digital agency we often receive website briefing documents prepared by the prospective client. Some of these documents are well written, some not.

We also receive RFP’s (request for proposals) in the form of tenders. Again the quality of these documents vary quite a lot. They are either for too complicated or too simple.
