The advice and guidance we give on the GDPR is how Wildfire Internet Ltd interprets it, having spent a lot of time going through the GDPR and giving due thought to its intent and meaning and how to implement it in a practical way. However GDPR is also highly specific to the nature of your business, and not all aspects and interpretations of GDPR are well-settled. As a result, this content is provided for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon as legal advice or to determine how GDPR might apply to you and your organisation. We encourage you to work with a legally qualified professional to discuss GDPR, how it applies specifically to your organisation, and how best to ensure compliance.
Our Approach To GDPR
We have scoped out the areas we understand are required for GDPR and for each element will either:
a) Make software changes to the system to handle the specific element
b) Create a new program to handle the specific element
c) Describe the method and existing programs you can use within the system to handle the specific element
d) Describe the way our existing system works for an element
e) Refer you to using your own internal procedures to handle the specific element
