Keeping your dating data fit for purpose
Online Discussion Forum (Webinar)
Wednesday 24th February 2021
11.00am EST / 4.00pm London (Duration: 60 minutes)
Privacy and data protection laws exist in every jurisdiction and getting it right when it comes to user data matters hugely for dating businesses.
Services need to give thought to the amount of data the take from users, the purposes it can be used for, its security and how and when it can be disclosed or deleted.
The California Consumer Privacy Law has been in effect for a year and its provisions are mirrored largely in the New York Privacy Act. Both, in turn, take much from the EU General Data protection Regulations implemented in mid-2018.
The issues with data and how to get it right, not wrong, were raised with the ODA by a number of businesses as something we should re-visit with experts from both sides of the Atlantic.
So, our next webinar on Wednesday 24th February 2021 will focus on data and privacy, looking at:
- how data is collected
- proper and improper uses – including monetization
- policy on retaining data after users leave a service and
- policy on how to manage a user request to have profiles deleted and data on them erased – the so-called right to be forgotten
The session will include experts from the Data Protection Network (DPN) and their US counterparts, as well as leading services talking about the policies they apply. We are pleased to welcome Julia Porter of DPN and formerly the Guardian Media Group and Chair of the British Data and Marketing Association, John Mitchison Director of Policy and Compliance from the Data & Marketing Association, and Christopher Field, Head of Privacy at global customer experience marketing company Harte Hanks, based in Texas.
The Zoom webinar will run for no longer than an hour starting at 4pm (UK time). You can register here.
