Hi Jon, thanks for that, but it isn't a lot of information considering most of it has been available for many months now.
We need Act! to help us comply, with plenty of time. Time though is running out.

Perhaps some suggested templates to send would help get us started?

I expect many EU Act! users will be using the Consent argument as their legal method for GDPR compliance, that or Legitimate Interest. Either way it would be helpful if Act! could indicate ways to manage fields in the dbase to cope with the requirements of these legal methods.
For Act! cloud users, GDPR seems to suggest that encryption is a good way to use the cloud, such that should data be stolen, it cannot be accessed. At the moment my understanding is that my cloud Act! dbase is not encrypted which concerns me somewhat. Has Act! taken a view wrt encryption and GDPR, and what is that view? It would be good to know!

As a general question, linked but not directly following from the previous posts - Is it possible to encrypt an ACT database that is located on a local pc/server? (we are currently running ACT! Premium v19.2 with all the updates installed) With respect to GDPR we are vulnerable to data breach both from hacking and also by physical theft of the PC/server. It would be reassuring to know that the data was encrypted.

another simple feature which could help in GDPR, is a clear ranking of the age of contacts, or the time since there was last a communication, as GDPR would like us to clean records that reach a certain age. I don't see an easy way to do this in Act! at the moment.
