GDPR: Why You DON’T Need To Delete Your List On 25th May – And 3 Practical Actions You Can Take Instead


With just a few weeks left until the GDPR deadline, many microbusinesses are struggling to get their heads round the complexity of the legislation.

* Where, specifically, you are struggling to comply (e.g. reconfirmation / software providers not offering tick boxes for granularity of consent)
* How this could damage your business – the unintended consequences of this legislation

Please let me know via the comments how you get on with this.
