The shocking truth about e-commerce software security.

Written by Jo Stonehouse
When you shop online you, you're giving the store an enormous amount of personal information - your name, address, email and even payment data. When giving over this information, you have to trust that they'll handle it responsibly, that their systems are secure and that your data is not going to be compromised.

But what do you really know about the store?

GDPR: Changes to the Domain WHOIS Database

Written by Jo Stonehouse
As recently announced, the EU GDPR is coming into effect on 25th May, bringing in a raft of new data privacy laws. The law has implications for how domain registrations, in particular, how the global WHOIS database works. The aim of this article is to provide some background on what WHOIS actually is, and why the issue of compliance has been and remains a complex issue for domain registrars.

The short answer is that, from May 25th, WHOIS will be going dark - if you're an EU resident, no personal data will be displayed in WHOIS results for domains that you register with Kualo.

GDPR: A Shared Responsibility for Data Security

Written by Craig
We recently posted about the upcoming GDPR, which becomes law on May 25th 2018. In that post we outlined more broadly what the GDPR is, and we touched on one of the concepts that this regulation brings in - the shared responsibility for data security. In this post, we will be expanding on this shared responsibility and, more specifically, outlining our responsibilities and measures in place to keep your data secure.

GDPR - Commitment Statement & General Overview

Written by Craig
The EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is coming into effect on May 25th 2018.

We're getting an increasing number of queries regarding the GDPR, and we are seeing a number of misconceptions about what it is and what it means for website owners. The purpose of this post is to firstly outline explicitly that Kualo are committed to being fully GDPR compliant by 25th May 2018. Secondly, we aim to address a number of general points with regards to what the GDPR is, and what you need to do to ensure that you are also compliant.

In summary, if you collect any personal data for EU residents, or if you provide the means for others to collect this data, you must ensure you are GDPR compliant and we strongly recommend reading on.

In what follows we outline the basics of the GDPR.

It is, however, a complex area - we are writing this for informational purposes only. We recommend that you conduct your own research and/or seek professional assistance, our guidance alone should not be relied on for any reason.
