You may have heard the joke about accepting terms and conditions without reading them. Some companies have even included silly clauses or hidden offers in their T&Cs just to see if anyone will read them. At FlashField, we believe you shouldn't need a law degree to understand your agreement with us. We want you to feel informed and in control of your data when you work with us to earn rewards through incentivized paid surveys.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation of the European Union (EU) that became effective on May 25, 2018. It strengthens and builds on the EU's current data protection framework and replaces the 1995 Data Protection Directive. GDPR is a set of rules designed to give EU citizens more control over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for businesses so that both citizens and businesses in the EU can fully benefit from the digital economy.
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation.
In January 2012, the European Commission set out plans for data protection reform across the EU in order to make Europe "fit for the digital age." After almost four years of negotiations, agreement was reached on the details of the reform and how it would be enforced.
GDPR compliance refers to the measures that organizations must take to ensure that they are following the rules and regulations outlined in the GDPR. This includes protecting personal data from misuse and exploitation, respecting the rights of data owners, and ensuring that personal data is gathered legally and under strict conditions. Organizations that fail to comply with GDPR may face penalties.
GDPR applies to any organization operating within the EU, as well as any organizations outside of the EU that offer goods or services to customers or businesses in the EU.
CCPA stands for the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018. It has been effective from January 1, 2020 and is the first law of its kind in the United States.
The CCPA protects the residents of California against third-party sales or disclosure of their personal information. The CCPA provides these privacy rights to California consumers:
According to the CCPA, personal information is defined as any information that can identify, describe, relate to or be linked with a consumer or their household in a way that a profile about their preferences and characteristics can be built.
Examples of personal information include:
Non-profit organizations are exempt from the CCPA. The CCPA applies to businesses that collect consumers’ personal data, does business in the state of California and meets one of the following criteria:
The GDPR applies to all businesses and their websites that deal with personal data from the EU, while the CCPA's protections are limited to individual data subjects that legally reside in California. The CCPA only affects for-profit entities whose business meets certain criteria (annual gross revenue >$25 million, data of >50,000 California consumers/devices/households, or 50% annual revenue from selling data) and collects personal information from California consumers and determines the purposes and means of processing that information, and operates in California.
The GDPR covers the processing of all personal data, while the CCPA requires businesses to supply an option to "opt-out" when user information is going to be actively sold or shared. The CCPA also doesn't provide protection for certain types of data, such as public information, medical information protected by California or federal laws, and other similar data sets.
Under both laws, "personal data" refers to any information that can directly or indirectly represent an identifiable person. However, the GDPR considers the "processing" of personal data to be any action performed on the information, while the CCPA divides its data-related terminology into separate definitions (collecting, selling, and processing).
Both the GDPR and CCPA give consumers the right to request access to their personal data, as well as request corrections or deletions. However, the GDPR requires businesses to respond to such requests within a month, while the CCPA gives businesses 45 days to respond.
Both the GDPR and CCPA have significant fines for non-compliance, but the GDPR's fines can be much higher (up to 4% of annual global revenue or €20 million, whichever is greater). The CCPA also allows for private rights of action, allowing consumers to sue businesses for data breaches.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
