EasyWebinar GDPR Compliance
We’re committed to helping our customers prepare for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR is a series of rules governing organizations that handle EU citizens’ personal data, regardless of where the organizations themselves are located.
Here we’ll explain our methods and plans to achieve GDPR compliance, both for ourselves and for our customers. GDPR will go into effect on May 25, 2018.
Our team has made EasyWebinar’s offerings and contractual commitments in line with GDPR so our customers can have the tools necessary to stay GDPR compliant.
Measures to achieve have included:
-Encrypting our database to be specifically compliant to GDPR
-Saving the consent we take from our users individually and how we encrypt it
-Allow our users to enable GDPR consent for their registration pages
-Show consent form to users while registering for a webinar
-Save consent for each attendee
-Committing to our Privacy Shield, and by implementing our Data Processing Addendum
We’ll also continue to monitor the guidance around GDPR compliance from privacy-related regulatory bodies, and will adjust our plans accordingly should the situation change.

Your Responsibility Under GDPR
If you are an EasyWebinar User, then that probably means you are a business owner, using the EasyWebinar software to sell goods and services to your customers. With respect to the customer data that you provide to EasyWebinar, EasyWebinar is a data processor and will comply with its obligations under the GDPR; but with respect to your customers, you are probably a data controller, and if any of your customers is a citizen or a resident of a country in the European Union, then you must ensure that you comply with your obligations as a data controller under the GDPR; namely, you must ensure that you afford Your Customers the rights identified in section (a) above. EasyWebinar sells software; it does not provide legal advice or legal services, nor does it sell a “done-for-you” GDPR compliance package. Please consult legal counsel of your own choosing for advice on what you need to do to comply with GDPR.
