Act! and GDPR Compliance

GDPR comes into force May 2018. 

 

Act! seem to have been quite quiet on this. 

 

Is there some guidance on Act! Premium (Web) and the GDPR?

We will be releasing more specific information on how to use Act! in line with GDPR in the near future.

Re: Act! and GDPR Compliance

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.

Re: Act! and GDPR Compliance

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

Re: Act! and GDPR Compliance

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!
