GDPR365’s popularity has generated widespread interest along with calls for languages other than English. We’re happy to announce that the base version is fully prepared for the impending rollout of the Dutch version. This will be followed by German, Spanish and French.
What has changed thus far?
You’ll now see a language flag in the top right navigation bar. This defaults to English, but as additional languages become available you’ll be able to select different flags.
In the ‘Privacy Notices’ section, under ‘Governance’, you’ll see three changes:
- ‘English’ is now presented in a tab
- A ‘Publish’ button has been inserted (together with the ‘Last published date’)
- Both the ‘Draft’ and ‘Published’ versions are downloadable as PDFs
There are a couple of other small changes:
- The ‘Employee Privacy Notice’ has moved to the ‘Internal’ tab
- In ‘Data mapping’, all ‘Add new’ functions will open a dialog box displaying ‘English’ after ‘Name’
An important note
In the past, we automatically published your privacy notice as soon as you made changes in GDPR365. We’ve now introduced the ‘Publish’ element to allow you more quality control.
If you make changes to your data mapping, or to your content when you’re editing it with ‘Use my own content’, then your privacy notices must be published for the changes you’ve made to be pushed live (to the public-facing URL we provide you with to place on your website). If you don’t PUBLISH, then your changes won’t be committed to the URL.
Please note! You don’t need to change the code. If the code has already been copied to your website, you don’t need to change it – you just need to publish the changes and they’ll reflect in the code.
Book an appointment with me if you’re unclear about the changes, or want to ask anything else about GDPR365.
