Global data, cross-border traffic, big data applications, smart homes and the internet of things are merely a few examples of the developments in the past few years that have pushed previous data protection regulations to their limits. This is one of the reasons the law has established the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will serve as the Europe-wide standard legislation for data protection from 25.05.2018. Alongside this, a new ePrivacy regulation will be reinforced, for the protection of personal data in the electronic communications sector, especially in the internet.

econda Privacy Protection

Data protection has always been pivotal part of econda’s products. We are and always have been pioneers in data protection – be it in the implementation of recommendations from the Düsseldorf working group or in the first Germany-wide certification “TÜV – Certified Data Protection“ of a web analytics solution.

To do this justice, we have introduced the econda Privacy Protection.

Which areas are affected by the GDPR and the ePrivacy regulations? What penalties do you face if you fail to observe these regulations?

Every company has countless systems which contain the records of the personal data of customers, suppliers and business partners. From classic systems such as ERP, CRM, support, call centers and customer service, to more complex systems in marketing with big data analyses, business intelligence, analytics, recommendation/personalization and the employment of agencies.

It is up to you and your company to fulfill the requirements of the GDPR, of the new Federal Data Protection Act, of the future ePrivacy regulations as well as all other specific statutory requirements. The specific requirements for each person concerned are highly complex. For example:

  • Traceability of consent (particularly in the area of online tools)

  • Opt-in, double opt-in and opt-out procedures, for example in terms of newsletter registrations

  • Fulfillment of legal disclosure obligations

  • Fulfillment of legal disclosure obligations

  • Traceable implementation of rights regarding correction, deletion, blocking and transfer of their personal data

  • enforcement of opt out requests

These requirements have to be logged centrally and verifiably implemented. You need to request a lot of upstream systems for information as well as pass requirements to subsystems, particularly ERP, CRM, mailing providers etc.

Particularly if you are in breach of agreements or individual rights, you risk being prosecuted according to art 83 para 5 of the GDPR. This penalty can be up to 20 million Euros or 4% of the complete worldwide projected yearly turnover of the previous tax year, whichever is higher.

How does econda rise to the challenge of fulfilling the constant changes and updates in the GDPR and the ePrivacy areas?

econda Privacy Protection helps you fulfill all these requirements and tasks in the following ways:

  • central management of user settings (customers and potential customers) regarding the private settings, across all platforms, sub systems and devices.

  • manage opt-ins and opt-outs across all systems and channels

  • You can identify users (customers and potential customers) who agreed to the use of their data for specific purposes and whose data you received for this very purpose.

  • process and propagate delete and opt-out requests

  • fulfillment of disclosure obligations

  • saving the relevant documentation

  • fine-grained permission handling

  • and many more
