EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Two ways for non-EU business owners to comply with the EU GDPR

Your organization serves customers in the EU and you want to make sure that you comply with the European GDPR? Either you’d like to follow a step-by-step guidance to set up a robust status of GDPR compliance for your EU customers data processing or you decide to rely on our hassle-free GDPR cloud documentation service, we are here for you!

When do you need to be GDPR compliant?

The answer is quite easy. If you process data of European individuals you have to comply with the GDPR. It doesn’t matter if we think of B2C or B2B, every personal data processing relates to this topic. This includes your B2C customers, your business contacts from suppliers, or contacts from any service providers involved into your business.

We know this topic can easily turn out to be complicated, and often enough it is. But you will see that an orderly procedure will take the pain out of these hurdles. We get you started! Think of the liberating feeling when you’ve accomplished the 30,000 feets altitude and only have to maintain the process from time to time. No more fear of the possible harsh punishments! No more question marks about what to do with regular internal audits, a customer query about data protection or a data breach problem.

Choose your way

Nothing needs to be turned upside down regarding your business processes after you decide to develop your so-called data protection management system. Sounds like a difficult thing to do, but we’re guiding you on rails to make it happen. Either with a DFY (done for you) solution in our GDPR documentation cloud or with a DIY (do it yourself) solution on paper – it’s your choice! We also discuss current legal issues in business relations between the EU and the US after the so-called Privacy Shield fell in summer 2020 and how we can best deal with them.

DFY – we take care of your GDPR documentation as a cloud service

You can put all the necessary questions, audits and documentation in our hands and become a member of our GDPR cloud service! We use an European leading provider for GDPR cloud documentation (Lukmann Consulting GmbH). This is a full service solution where no separate documentation at your side is needed. You don’t have to interact with our cloud user interface at all as we do this completely for you. We can also set up a free user account for you. Please think about choosing this way if …

  • … you don’t want to deal with an own GDPR documentation infrastructure (100% cloud documentation!)
  • … you like to be embedded into a scheduled regular audit process for any established measures, inkl. reports
  • … you have to deal with tons of sensitive user data (this means racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or ideological beliefs, union membership, genetic data, biometric data, health data, sex life or sexual orientation data) and want to discuss several ways to protect them better
  • … you regularly process personal data with 20+ employees as their main task and therefore need an EU data protection officer

Please book a call (phone/VC) if you feel this way would be right for you. Let’s talk about details to address so that we’re able to give an offer to you for our service. Or simply use the contact form below to request an individually planned time frame for our call or to send us your message.

DIY – create your GDPR documentation with our excellent work materials

No extra software needed! We keep it as simple as possible and follow a paper style approach for your own GDPR documentation. Choose this way if …

  • … you are self-employed or own a company with few connections to European customers
  • … you don’t hesitate to work with our excellent materials to create your own GDPR documentation
  • … you keep an eye on the process to regularly enhance your own data protection management system
  • … you are glad to know that we are there for you in case of any questions or unexpected proceedings

There is no need to change any process in question right away. The main idea behind this topic is to document your efforts on how you can improve your processes over time and thereby better protect your customers as well. This means at first to recognize possible vulnerabilities within your data processing systems or your communication processes. Maybe you have to sharpen one or another agreement with your suppliers or service providers. Many of those little steps ARE your GDPR compliance and we guide our customers to do this right.
