With GDPR, the EU privacy regulations will enter a new era: Are you ready for it?

There’s a date: 25 May 2018. There’s an acronym: GDPR, which means General Data Protection Regulation. But what does it really mean, and what will actually change for your company?

At the outset, we should say that it will be a big change. To be GDPR compliant, several actions will be required for your organization. And no, you don’t really have a choice. Fines are all but mild.

Quick flashback: After four years of debating and preparations, on 14 April 2016, the GDPR was finally approved by the European Parliament, to replace the previous norm known as Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC. The GDPR will come into force in May, when all the UE countries will be automatically subject to the norm, without the national governments having to adopt it formally.

The new regulation has been approved to improve the EU citizens privacy protection, and it will deeply influence the modalities with which organizations will handle personal data.

Pvideo for GDPR is a new Doxee initiative to communicate the information note update for users through a transparent and accessible electronic format. Thanks to the potential of our personalized videos, tailored made to viewer’s needs, you won’t simply make sure to achieve compliancy, but you can at the same time dramatically improve your effectiveness at gathering users’ consent. Thus, ultimately also improving the trust relationship between them and your organization. Take a look at the video below to see how it works!

Pvideo for GDPR, based on Doxee’s Pvideo technology, can inform every specific user about the data that the company is authorized to use. Being interactive by nature, Pvideo allows users to extend their consent for data usage, directly into the video, without the need to leave the screen and to read endless, unreadable policy documents. All in perfect compliancy with the new regulation, thus granting the validity of the received consent.

Concerned about security? Our platform guarantees privacy protection, inasmuch as the Pvideo access mechanism (reachable through a personalized URL sent via e-mail or SMS) puts in place specific countermeasures to protect information.

Do you have other questions on your mind? Maybe you want to know when and in which conditions you need to request new consent from your clients? Or if authentication is necessary? Or, again, you would like details on how we record the proof of the received consent?

For the answers to these questions (and more), take a look at this document. While if you want to find out more on the world of Pvideo – which has the potential to go far beyond the GDPR – this is the link for you.
