Data Privacy Mistakes The 6 most common mistakes businesses make


Does the following sentence sound familiar?

“I have read and accept the privacy policy.”

This checkbox is often found beneath online forms... and it's completely superfluous. There is no need to accept a privacy policy because it merely serves an informational purpose.

After working with over 2000 customers, our privacy experts come across the same mistakes again and again. From CV databases to checkboxes beneath website forms to a lack of employee training on data protection topics, these mistakes can have vastly different consequences – ranging from slight inconveniences to negative reviews on comparison sites or reputation damage. 

In this whitepaper, we explore the six most common UK GDPR mistakes - and show you how to avoid them!
