What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive data privacy and security law enacted by the European Union. It regulates the processing of personal data of individuals within the EU and EEA, setting strict guidelines for data collection, processing, and storage. 

How is it implemented in client portals? 

The role of GDPR in client portals is multifaceted, influencing data collection, user rights, and cross-border data transfers. It manifests in several critical functions:

  • Data Collection and Processing. Client portals collect and process personal data, including informed user content, to abide by GDPR requirements.
  • User Rights and Information. GDPR mandates that client portals provide transparent information about how personal data is used.
  • Cross-Border Data Transfer. Ensure compliance with GDPR rules regarding transferring personal data outside the EU and EEA.

How does GDPR affect businesses outside the EU that use client portals?

Any business that processes personal data of EU citizens must comply with GDPR, even if they are located outside the EU. This includes non-EU businesses that operate client portals and handle data of individuals from the EU.

Can GDPR compliance enhance client trust in a portal?

Yes, it can significantly enhance client trust, demonstrating a commitment to protecting personal data and respecting user privacy.
