Webinaris and the GDPR

On 25 May 2018, the new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) came into force - and with Webinaris you are fully on the safe side.

In this article we answer all relevant questions about the GDPR. If you have any further questions, please feel free to send us an e-mail to info@webinaris.com

I) How can I sign a contract for data processing (DPA / ADV / AVV) with Webinaris?

We explain this in article DPA / ADV / AVV / Sign contract for data processing according to GDPR

II) How can I insert my imprint, my privacy policy or my general terms and conditions on my landing page, my thank you page and my webinar room?

You will find a "footer" section in the editor of each of these pages. There you can enter these information.

III) How can I have my participants accept my data protection regulations when signing up for my webinars?

You can add up to 3 consents in the Landingpage editor as well as in the iFrame registration form editor. These can either be displayed as a mere hint or as a checkbox to be confirmed.

IV) Is it documented somewhere which participant has given me which consent?

Yes, you can click on the three points next to each participant in the "Viewers" menu. There you will find their history. In the history, you can see which consent was activated during registration and whether the participant marked the corresponding checkbox.

V) How can I activate the double opt-in process?

This is very easy in the menu "Communication" -> "E-mails".

VI) Is there any documentation of when a participant confirmed the double opt-in?

Yes, you can download the list of participants as an Excel file from the "Viewers" menu at the top right. There you will find the information whether and when individual participants have confirmed the double opt-in.

VII) Can I give my autoresponder the information whether someone has made the double opt-in or unsubscribed from my mailing list?

With most interfaces you can use the options "At Double Opt-In" and "At Unsubscribe" as triggers to give the participant a certain TAG or to assign him to a certain list.

VIII) Does Webinaris provide a sample text for my privacy policy?

Since it varies from customer to customer what exactly happens to the participant data, this is unfortunately not possible.
