There is probably no one who in the last few days would not know about the RODO anymore. Our mailboxes are constantly flooding with information about the entry into force of this law, and each subsequent website you visit accuses us of popping up with information about privacy policy and the use of personal data. The issues of RODO dominated the media and forced the creators to comply with certain rules. You are a blogger and are wondering what you should do to avoid breaking the new law? WORK for bloggers? I have a few tips for you!
Does RODO include bloggers?
The first question about the WORK that will come to mind for anyone who has, or is planning to have, a blog will be simple: Is that also true for me? The answer is equally simple. The DPO applies to everyone. In order to comply with the new law on personal data protection, we need to adapt our blog to the required standards.
The most important information about the RODO for Internet creators
Turning to the specifics of the regulation of the processing of personal data, we must say one thing to ourselves, if the activity on your blog is limited only to the publication of entries, then there is a chance that you will not have to do anything or change anything. All forms of data collection and processing, such as collecting comments, newsletter emails, contact forms or registration, are subject to the FOOD for bloggers. All this will force the blog to make some changes.
Practical tips for bloggers on what to do with your ORDER
What do I need to do to prepare a blog for the year? There are a few basic actions:
Create a document with a record of your personal data processing activities.
It doesn’t have to be anything like that. It is enough to have a simple table containing the data of the blog owner together with the registration of all activities during which the collected data was processed, the persons whose data were used and when the data were deleted. Treat it as a kind of data processing log.
Ensure the protection of your personal data.
These include security measures to protect against data leakage/theft, such as antivirus software and encryption.
Create a data processing entrustment agreement.
You must prepare it if you forward the data you have collected, e.g. if you share the data with a host provider.
Insert an appropriate clause where data is collected from users.
Create a written privacy policy that includes information about cookies, security policies, etc.
Micro-activity and WORK
Many people are asking whether the new rules also apply to micro-businesses. The answer is obvious – yes, it is. As I mentioned earlier, the GIP applies to everyone who processes or records personal data (name, first name, PIN, etc.) in any way in their activity. Regardless of the size of the company or the number of people employed by it, the condition remains the same.
WORK after entering, whether it was worthwhile to be afraid of
With the arrival of the IPO, many concerns arose and the internet raised questions about the consequences of non-compliance with the IPO and possible sanctions. Is there anything to be afraid of? In the case of bloggers, we can be sure that there is still nothing to fear after the entry into force of the law. Unless you run a blog that attracts hundreds of thousands of readers a month, the chance of imposing a fine for possible irregularities is quite low. However, you should be aware that penalties for not following the rules are, or will be, applied sooner or later, so you should not hesitate to optimize your blog in this respect. The officials themselves stipulated that penalties in this case would not be a means of intimidation and that any sanction imposed would be preceded by a thorough analysis.
