You may be fully aware of the new EU regulation, and confident that you’ll be compliant by 25th May, in which case that’s great! On the other hand, like thousands of small businesses, charities and organisations in the UK, you may not be quite there yet (or even thought about it).
Whilst we can’t offer legal advice, we can help you to meet the GDPR requirements around your website, and point you towards some really helpful and easy-to-read resources.
The GDPR requirements mean that most website owners will need to make some changes (such as replace their Privacy Notice, update some copy and possibly revise their newsletter sign-up process) … and anything more significant we will always advise clients of any costs in advance.
If you don’t have GDPR-compliant polices and would like this, along with plain-English, actionable legal advice, please see the ‘GDPR Pack’ information below.
Remember: your organisation is responsible for ensuring its own legal compliance, so it’s up to you decide what needs changing and to provide the relevant information (copy, policy etc). Whilst IJL Web Solutions can’t provide legal advice, we do highly recommend the GDPR Pack below.

These are written by Suzanne Dibble, who is a multi-award winning business lawyer who consults with multi-nationals on data protection law and the upcoming GDPR. She is one of the few lawyers who really understands small business owners and puts law and regulation in the context of your business. There has been a lot of scaremongering and hype about GDPR (with the headline fines of €20m) and Suzanne brings a practical, balanced approach.
Suzanne has also recorded a number of ‘plain English’ Facebook videos around GDPR compliance which you can see
Free GDPR Guidance Videos
This page here lists all of Suzanne’s GDPR videos so feel free to browse them. They include many relevant topics, such as:
- GDPR and granularity of consent – how many tick boxes
- GDPR and manual files / hard copy data
- Your obligations to keep records of data processing under GDPR
- GDPR and B2B marketing – does GDPR distinguish between B2B and B2C marketing?

This is the information IJL Web Solutions are using to ensure we meet the compliance requirements of GDPR, and we can personally highly recommend them.
We truly hopefully this information has helped you to relax and worry a little less about GDPR compliance!
