How to Become GDPR Compliant with Self Service Kiosks
GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation, was adopted by EU Parliament in April 2016 and has loitered on every business’s hunched shoulders since, with the official enforcement date of 25th May 2018 looming. It’s an important advancement in data protection; designed to update Europe’s relationship with data privacy but proves to be a big, intimidating task for all companies that hold personal data.
Fortunately, there are solutions out there to make life easier, and thanks to technology advancements the collection and processing of data that’s GDPR compliant can be automated! Companies have developed solutions for GDPR that electronically obtain and record consent, refresh data and more. imageHOLDERS are the solution to presenting this software to continue essential data collection, surveys, feedback and registration efforts in the form of our self-service kiosks.
Here’s how to become GDPR compliant for purposes such as:
Visitor & Event Registration
Visitors books in hotels and paper event registration will change significantly, as they hold personal information such as names, car registrations and contact information. All personally identifiable information needs to be managed and protected which can be executed with a visitor registration kiosk with a tablet integrated with chosen software.
GDPR outlines that personal information should only be necessary to keep for 3 months. By collecting it electronically, it can be marked to automatically schedule for deletion, and ensure its sensitivity, storage and movement within and outside the company is electronically controlled.
Companies within the charity, data collection and other sectors that thrive off survey collection of personal data will have to make the biggest changes to become GDPR compliant. With so much data on their hands, it’s essential they ensure their surveys become electronic. Survey kiosks by imageHOLDERS can be placed within the office or transported to a desired destination to not only keep data secure but simplify the process for members of the public.
Many businesses within retail, banking and other B2C industries that want feedback on their services can do so within their physical locations and ensure GDPR compliance with feedback kiosks. This also enables multi-channel integration; by collecting data electronically it is more accurate and can be uploaded automatically to internal CRMs. Mount a feedback kiosk such as the Shell +12 secure iPad or tablet kiosk wall mount close to entrances to encourage customers for feedback.
“The consequences of failing to comply with GDPR are significant with fines of up to 4% of a company’s turnover or €20,000,000 – whichever is larger.”
With these consequences in mind, the importance of GDPR compliance is not to be underestimated. Upgrade your data collection to an electronic system with the help of a self-service kiosk.
