GDPR Compliancy - General Data Protection Regulation: New European Privacy Laws effect many aspects of data collection. If you choose to become GDPR complaint, this hourly service is complicated, requires legal privacy policies, browser cookie notifications and special newsletter signup forms, mailing lists and data management. GDPR also includes numerous other requirements: record keeping, nominating a Data Protection Officer, implementing a management risk process, etc. Depending on your business and the nature of the personal data you process, the implications of the GDPR can be extremely far-reaching. To better understand the requirements and legal ramifications for your organization, we recommend you consult a legal advisor specializing in personal data regulations. Companies that are found to be in violation of the GDPR may be fined anywhere from 2-4% of annual revenue, or up to 20 million dollars, whichever is the larger amount. Neff Creative are not legal advisors and are not responsible for GDPR compliancy, but will make your site and newsletters compliant to the best of our abilities.

Since all integrations are built into the platform, you don’t have to navigate a separate integrations or app marketplace to set up these features. Neff Creative can help advise and guide you thru any of their partnership software to install into your Squarespace website design. We also recommend using Drift, an online chat software which is also free to use. Your Squarespace subscription includes most integrations which we can add into the site at anytime. However, some services like G Suite by Google, Xero, ShipStation, or certain MailChimp plans, are paid subscriptions.

All analytics are provided to the client to show click thru rates and traffic generated. Recommended to be part of an overall marketing campaign (newsletter, PR, blog post, print advertisements).
Free Domain Name
A free domain name is also included with your annual website hosting plan. However, Neff Creative will need to purchase the domain name while setting up your Squarespace website hosting, so that it is attached properly to your site. This will require you to give us the credit card and pay for the hosting plan in advance of launch.
If you already have a domain name, please let us know where the domain is hosted and what the login and password are. If the DNS settings are located outside of your domain registrar, integration will be done on an hourly basis and billed at our regular hourly rate. If this is the case, you must also provide all relevant information to Neff Creative prior to commencement of the project.

The content you will need to provide will include graphics, testimonials, and copy for each web page, your logo files (hopefully in vector format), and ideally your formal brand style guide for us to reference.

You will need to deliver all the copy for each web page via email or in a Google Doc within your online folder.
