Preparing For GDPR – Discover eLearning

By 21st May 2018 Data Protection
GDPR

You’ve probably received one or two emails in your inbox over the last few weeks telling you about GDPR. You’ve also probably received an email joking that you’ve probably already received many emails telling you about GDPR (You’ve probably received an email joking about that as well!). And so on so so forth… But later this week, the talk will be over and the new GDPR regulations will come into effect across Europe.

At Discover eLearning, we value data protection and privacy as much as you do. And as well as telling you about the changes that we have made to some of our policies in preparation for Friday, I also wanted to walk you through some of the practical changes that have been made to the site to help better promote the spirit and the power to promote your legal rights that comes as part of GDPR.

So Firstly, let’s talk about our…

Updated Privacy Policy

This can be found at the following address – https://www.discoverelearninguk.com/privacy-policy. It is a very important document that must be read and agreed to before you conduct any sort of business with Discover eLearning, such as hiring us for our services or purchasing one of our “paid-for” products found on our webstore. In this policy we clearly outline how we capture and use data that you share with us, and how long we intend to hold onto this data in compliance with the law.

In relation to this policy, we also have a Cookie Policy and Website Terms and Conditions, which separately provides you with full disclosure of how we use Cookies to provide the services of our site, as well as the terms that govern your use of the site itself.

Captured Personal Data Is Now Reduced When Buying A FREE Product From Us

This was one of the first practical changes that we made to our site in preparation for GDPR. When you get to the Checkout screen following adding one of our free Storyline Templates or WordPress Plugins to your shopping cart, you will now only be asked to provide your name and email address in order to create an account with us to access your products following checkout. If you have something in your basket that is not free, and therefore you need to spend money with us, only then will we ask for your address details. This is because we need to keep a record of who are customers are and where they are based for tax reasons. More details on this can be read in our Privacy Policy.

Ability To Delete Your Account Has Been Added To The Customer Dashboard

When you open an account with us, you can visit the Customer Dashboard at any time by accessing this link: https://www.discoverelearninguk.com/my-account. Here you will find a new link which will allow you to delete your account at any time. Once you delete your account, all related information assigned to your account (ie. what you provided at checkout) will also be removed from our WordPress system. Please be aware that this process is not reversible, so access to any products that you may have purchased will also be revoked.
