OptimizePress's commitment to data privacy and GDPR Compliance
With the May 25th deadline fast approaching, our compliance, privacy and information security teams are almost done checking off our GDPR to-do list. Below is an overview of what we have done or are in the process of doing to meet the new regulation requirements.
We have conducted a company wide review of all our current solutions and are working on adding new features to assist our customers in making their websites GDPR compliant
- Consent Checkboxes on opt-in forms in OptimizePress 2.0 (LiveEditor)
- Consent Checkboxes on opt-in forms in SmartTheme
- Consent Checkboxes on opt-in forms in OptimizeLeads
- Transmitting consent data to third party integration via tags or custom fields (platform wide where possible)
We are working to have all of these features implemented by the 25th May 2018 where possible. Features will be added as they are completed and updates will be released
Data Processing Agreement
We offer a data processing agreement (DPA) for our customers in the EU who use OptimizeLeads (this is the only software where we act as a processor). Our DPA offers contractual terms that meet GDPR requirements and that reflect our data privacy and security commitments to our customers.
There is no need for a DPA for users of our themes and plugins as we do not see any of your customer or prospect data as this is all controlled within your own website.
To guarantee no terms are imposed on us beyond what is reflected in our DPA and Terms of Service, we cannot agree to sign customers’ DPAs. As a small team we are unable to make individual changes to our DPA as we do not have a legal team on staff. Any changes to the standard DPA would require legal counsel and a lot of back and forth discussion that would be cost-prohibitive for our team.
If you have any questions or concerns please let us know.
