GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation

Obatics has many features to help you comply with the GDPR regulation. If you are unaware of how it effects you, here are some of the questions you might be asking:

When do I need to be GDPR Compliant?

From May 25th, 2018, the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation will come into force.

What is Opt-In?

Opt-in is a process that proves the person you are emailing has agreed to your communications. You must keep a record of this agreement to prove the recipient opted-in.

What is Opt-Out?

Opt-Out gives the recipient the option to have all of their personal details removed from your records. It must be easy for the person you are contacting to Opt-Out.

What might I be asked by the regulators or receipients?

You can be asked for a copy of all documents with contain personal details on an individual. You can also be asked to remove all personal details (which includes name, phone, address, ip address, etc) in all records on an individual.

Can you still contact your customers or suppliers without Opted-In consent?

Technically, yes, provided the contact details you have are not personal - you can email info@obatics.ie as the address is generic, but you will need consent from the recipient for personal email addresses, for example joe.jones@obatics.ie

What happens if I contact a person without Opt-In consent?

After 25th of May, 2018, you risk a fine of up to €20 million, or 4% of the worldwide annual revenue of the prior financial year, whichever is higher
