THE GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION
STUFF DATA PROTECTION. STUFF GDPR.
Carrying on regardless almost all people have ignored The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations). Now we are not going to get entangled in the full data stuff because funnily enough there are dedicated websites for it. HERE IS A LINK TO ONE (our pleasure).
The aim of this blog post is to translate the basic stuff. Nothing more than that. You see the STUPID PARROTS are doing their utmost to expose business to a catastrophic or ultimate extinction situation.
NOTHING TO DO WITH US GOV.
Sounds very exaggerated.
JUST TAKE A MOMENT TO CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING: –
If you have been bothered to check out the links above you may have seen both insignificant small businesses and global businesses have fallen fowl to breaching The GDPR. In fact even UK Government departments have slipped up (Oops).
Why do STUPID PARROTS love marketing data?
Err… do we really need to answer this? Oh go on then. EXAMPLE TIME: A website is developed. This website allows consumers to enter personal details, whether an order, a contact request or any other reason. Absolutely fabulous… now we have the data. QUESTIONS: Where is the data routed and stored? Who has access? What is the personal stuff going to be used for? Is it shared?… so on, so on and so on. If no one can answer those simple questions then you are up The GDPR swanny without a boat, let alone one of those paddley things.
PESSIMISTIC? YEP… we are. That is why we are good at what we do. As the old saying goes… “Hope for the best, plan for the worst”. The STUPID PARROTS will have you hoarding whatever data stuff they can get hold of. They love the stuff. They cannot get enough of the stuff. Look at how much stuff they can get for you. EXCELLENT. Great work.
NO, not excellent, BAD! (STUPID PARROTS).
IN PLAIN ENGLISH.
We know everything.
Do you like the sound of this? We know all the details. The team are sharing them around the office. They are at this very moment sending them off to another business. No harm done! HOLD ON… this is your personal data. Changed your mind now?
We are all consumers. If we think of the data as our own personal details it gives us a true insight into the basics principles of The GDPR. The data we keep and process is personal and needs to be managed and protected in a professional and secure manner.
QUICK FACT! Everyone, and we mean everyone in the UK including businesses, sole traders, charities, government departments and even the local playgroup should by law register with ICO. STUPID PARROTS this does not apply to you obviously. You are exempt or is it inept?
There are lots of GDPR experts out there. From solicitors, to specialist information technology businesses. There are even cheap, online service providers. A flurry of STUPID PARROTS have also started to appear in the belief that they know best. TRUST US. If you do one thing take The GDPR seriously. Alternatively stuff data protection. Who cares?
PLEASE IGNORE THE FINGERPRINT. It has been left here for search engines as they like at least one picture to be on a page. Go figure!
