Sharoe Green Dental Practice – Getting Ready for GDPR
This Friday, one of the biggest changes ever made in the laws protecting the personal data of individuals comes into effect. GDPR, or the General Data Protection Regulation in full, is a new law that supersedes the current Data Protection Act and serves to greatly enhance consumers rights when it comes to their personal data and the way companies collect, use and store it. It also places a greater emphasis on privacy and security. In order to be fully compliant with the new regulations, we’ve made a few updates to our website and would like to take this opportunity to ensure that our patients are aware of some of the key ways in which we are ensuring that the best possible standards are met.
1. New Cookies Notice
Cookies are messages that web servers pass to your web browser when you visit internet sites. They can be used to personalise your experience and record certain information such as pages viewed. Your browser stores each message in a small file. The vast majority of cookies are entirely safe, anonymous and nothing to worry about, however all websites have a duty to inform the visitor.
3. SSL Encryption
The New GDPR legislation makes it mandatory for companies to ensure that website visitors are protected from hacking and data leaks. One way that this can be achieved is to ensure that the website is protected by what is known as SSL encryption, which means that any data shared between you and the website or vice versa cannot be intercepted. Here at Sharoe Green Dental Practice, we’ve been secure for a long time, however we feel that it is important for our visitors to know that they are safe.
SSL encryption is recognised by your web browser and allows it to show the green padlock icon accompanied by the prefix ‘https’ in the address bar.
