The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new European Union law that goes into effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR allows individuals in the EU to have even more control over their data and privacy, listing out a series of requirements for businesses to protect PII (Personally Identifiable Information). This is a unifying standard that will impact the way that businesses store, manage, collect, and protect user data. UPICRM is fully compliant with the GDPR by the enforceable date.


How does the GDPR Affect UPICRM users?

UpiCRM collects personal information from site visitors by collecting the data submitted on the site’s forms.  The data is stored and managed on the WordPress server – hence defining site owner as a Data Controller.

What UPICRM users need to do ?

  1. Secure your webserver.
  2. Install an anti virus / malware protection software :
    we highly recommend WebDefender – Complete WP Security Protection (formely CWIS Antivirus)
  3. Install audit trail plugin on your site.
  4. Protect all access to site administration using secure passwords.
  5. Configure GDPR setting of UpiCRM installation on your site.. 
  6. Highly recommended: transmit all your leads to a 3rd UPICRM integration server, hosted on a different server from your site. UPICRM will transmit leads to a remote server, delete all personal information from your server while keeping only the meta data of your leads on your site.GDPR & UPICRM - transmit your leads to a UPICRM integration server and delete personal data from your site
