The main legal requirements for website and app owners
If the user has the possibility to directly enter personal data on the site or application, for example by filling out a contact form, registration for the service or subscription to the newsletter, it is necessary to obtain a free, specific and informed consent, as well as register a test unambiguous consent.
It is necessary to collect a consent for each specific processing purpose – for example, a consent to send newsletters and another consent to send promotional material on behalf of third parties. Consents can be requested by preparing one or more non-pre-selected, non-mandatory checkboxes accompanied by information texts that make it clear to the user how his data will be used.
– the types of personal data processed;
– the legal bases of the processing;
– the purposes and methods of processing;
– the subjects to whom the personal data may be communicated;
– any transfer of data outside the European Union;
– the rights of the interested party;
– the identification details of the owner.
Can’t we use a generic document?
It is not possible to use generic documents as the information must describe in detail the data processing carried out by your site or application, also listing all third-party technologies used (such as Facebook Like buttons or Google Maps maps).
What if my site does not process any data?
It is very difficult for your site not to process any data. In fact, a simple contact form or a traffic analysis system such as Facebook Pixel or Google Analytics is enough to trigger the obligation to prepare and show the information.
