GDPR, the new regulation governing personal data and, more importantly, our control over who uses our data and for what purpose, is coming into force on 25th May this year.
For the majority of businesses, a website is a necessity for all sorts of reasons. Your business may rely solely on the internet as its channel to market (think eBay, Amazon etc), or it may just be a shop window to tell potential customers more about what you do, why they should use you and where you are located (think Solicitors, Consultants, Vets etc).
However big (or small) a part your website will play in your business, there are some fundamental things you need to think about before you start to build it:
