Importance Of Data Privacy To Your Business
One of the hot topics around this digital world is the idea of data privacy.
There are even laws around these such as GDPR for the UK and even our own Data Privacy Act of 2012.
However, not a lot of us business owners are aware of such laws leaving us at risk for non-compliance.
Personally, I found it to be overwhelming and I’m guessing, a lot more people do.
So if I may, I just have one basic advice which you may adapt for your business to make help you stay compliant.
And this goes back to what I have always been saying and doing business whether online or offline and that’s to realize that every transaction is a human interaction.
We did this very well siguro mga 20 years ago.
Before, when you ask for someone’s number, specifically someone you have yet to be more familiar with, it’s only normal for you to tell them why you’re asking for that information.
“May I get your number para I can give you call? I promise I won’t give it to other people”
“May I get your e-mail so I can send you some interesting stuff? I promise I won’t send you chain messages”
When asking for any type of data from your customers, let them know why your getting that information and what you intend to do with it.
That’s just basic decency and respect.
You don’t even have to do it as compliance. Just do it out of respect.
As far as I know, this is the most basic level and I’m not the expert in this but I know that this is still an important step to do.
If you do need a consult with an actual expert though, let me know and I can connect you to the expert on Data Privacy compliance here in the Philippines.
