GDPR Mini-Training #3 (S3E40)


In our third and final GDPR mini-training ("GDPR" is the European Union's new General Data Protection Regulation), I covered:

  • What the GDPR is (briefly!)
  • Changes US businesses may need to make with their website if they use cookies
  • How do you know if your website uses cookies? (hint: if you use the Facebook ad pixel, Google analytics, or other ways to track your website visitors to other sites or target advertising to them, you’re using cookies!)
  • Three options for US businesses to comply with GDPR if they use cookies, including pop-ups, banners, and an “I agree” button
  • Recommended plug-ins to get your website GDPR compliant
  • Steps you can take right now in your business to comply with GDPR, not just with cookies

GDPR Mini-Training #1 (S3E38)


You may have heard about the “GDPR,” the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation. This huge change to the legal rules in the EU will affect all U.S. companies that have a website, and goes into effect May 25, 2018. Each week this month on the podcast, I’m releasing a mini-training on GDPR, to break down the law into smaller, more digestible parts. 

In this week’s first GDPR mini-training episode, you’ll learn:

  • What the GDPR is
  • Which businesses need to comply
  • Penalties you could face if you don’t comply
  • An overview of the changes required by the law
