Summary

Summary: 
A German IT company which has developed a software-based solution to check websites on General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliancy, and to keep them GDPR compliant, is looking for international partners to conclude commercial agency agreements. Also licence agreements for the use of the software are possible.

Description

Description: 

The German company, active in the field of information and IT service, is specialised in developing individualised software for data processing. More precisely, they are offering software-based services to make and to keep websites GDPR compliant. This service also comprises providing concrete recommendations for action and provision of customized legal texts

The software tool, developed by the company, examines websites and identifies privacy issues: texts, contact forms, use of videos, social media implementation, etc. On this basis the website owner receives an individual privacy report with a list of problems found and concrete recommendations how to solve them. The service also includes the provision of customized legally compliant texts, e.g. for privacy policy.

In addition to the technical check, the German company is also carrying out a manual check on demand according to numerous criteria. The result is a list of problems found and the associated recommendations that can be implemented cost-effectively.

The software and the services are already well introduced into the German market. The company is now looking for European and international partners. The cooperation could be formally organised in the framework of commercial agency agreements. License agreements for the use of the company’s software are also possible.

Regarding GDPR compliancy, not only partners from EU member states are targeted, but also companies from third countries offering products or services in the EU.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The software tool includes an in-depth review of the website and covers a variety of components. The deep check consists of a complete scan of all accessible subpages of the website as well as a manual examination. The analysis of the website is both technically and in terms of data protection law and identifies problems and present recommendations and solutions. Legislative changes as well as content changes of the website are considered. The GDPR compliancy check is not-text based, so the software’s services can be applied on websites in every requested language.
