What is the GDPR?

On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in the European Union (EU). GDPR gives EU citizens the right to order any company to stop building profiles about them, request data deletion within 30 days, move data from one provider to another, and gives them the “right to be forgotten”. If a company fails to comply, they will be fined either €20 million or 4% of their annual global revenue, whichever is larger.

The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulation (PECR), which deals with cookies, has also been strengthened to bring it in line with GDPR, which means more restrictions on how and when data analytics tools like cookies can be used.

If your website has users from anywhere in the European Union, it is imperative that your website is GDPR-compliant.

We will conduct a review of your website to check if it is GDPR-compliant and provide you with a list of changes you need to make, if it is not currently compliant.

This review covers website-related GDPR compliance only.


  • how data is collected through the site
  • how consent can be requested at all relevant touchpoints
  • how individuals can get access to their data

Not included:

  • evaluation of which data is considered legitimate to hold
  • the length of time the data will be held for
  • how it will be used
  • any data storage/collection not conducted on the website

How it works

The process begins by completing a briefing questionnaire to clarify your objectives. This briefing will be visible to all team members involved with delivering the service and is the foundation for all our quality checks.

We will ask you for full access to your website and open lines of communication with relevant people within your organisation, e.g. website developers. Limited access to your website and relevant employees may impact the accuracy of the review.

Our web team will carefully examine your website for GDPR-compliance, focusing particularly on:

  • contact forms
  • login areas
  • e-commerce purchase areas
  • anywhere where the user needs to input data

They will then write up the review. This PDF document will include the following:

  • areas of your website that are not GDPR-compliant
  • a summary of all cookies on your website, with identifying information where available
  • a list of changes that need to be made to ensure GDPR-compliance

You will also receive links to our video and guide on GDPR.

This service covers one language version of a website. If your website is in multiple languages, you will need to order it multiple times. Lead times will vary depending on the size of the website.

Please note that, as Webcertain cannot control or review data factors in a company's control, this service should be taken as educated guidance. Webcertain will not accept any responsibility for any consequential losses or liabilities.
