Are you trying to figure out what the GDPR means for you as a blogger or struggling to get your blog compliant?
What if I told you can get your blog GDPR compliant in a matter of hours without much effort or financial investment?
Created by a lawyer specialised in EU law (LLB, LLM, PhD) and specifically designed for bloggers, this course shows you everything you need to know and do to make your blog fully GDPR compliant.
It comes with templates, checklists and an easy to follow step-by-step action plan to make your blog compliant in no time!
No more guesswork and headache.
Your compliance will be a walk in the park!
The GDPR started applying on 25 May 2018.
Are you freaking out about compliance?
You’re not alone!
Bloggers are going crazy trying to make their websites GDPR compliant.
But while most bloggers would like to make their blog GDPR compliant, not many know how to do it properly.
And that’s for good reason!
The GDPR is composed of 173 very long recitals and 99 quite complex articles. No GDPR provision is crystal clear and there are a lot of grey areas.
If you’re not familiar with the legal jargon of the EU institutions, the GDPR may sound terribly obscure and you can get overwhelmed pretty soon.
You may even consider ignoring the GDPR altogether.
But don’t make that mistake.
It could lead to irreparable consequences.
Having to deal with complaints, the risk of fines up to €20 M, and even the possibility to get sued!
Definitely not worth it!
I know the legal side of your blog may not be as glamorous and exciting as other aspects of your blogging life but if you don’t dot the i’s and cross the t’s on the legal requirements for your blog, you may end up not having a blog at all!
And sure, you may be tempted to brush it all off as scaremongering.
After all, who is going to fine a small blog for 20 million, right?
The GDPR is just for the big fish, right?
Well, you may not get a fine in the millions but hey, even a few thousand dollar fine may set you back massively or tank your blog for good.
It's not so much that some zealous EU officials will stumble upon your blog and fine you, it's more the fact that the GDPR gives YOUR users based in the EU the right to lodge a complaint against you with a supervisory authority and even the right to sue you!
And yes, in case you’re wondering, thanks to international law, bilateral cooperation agreements and the aid of local enforcement authorities, they can reach you even if you’re based outside of the EU.
It only takes one unhappy and pedantic user who feels violated in their right to privacy to get you into trouble.
Besides, everyone is updating their policies and making the required adjustments.
The GDPR is setting a new international standard.
If you don't conform, your users will notice.
Your blog will look like a second-class dodgy and spammy website.
You may lose your users' trust.
Your reputation may suffer.
You may even incur a loss of earnings and income if brands and providers will no longer want to partner with you or if your users won't buy directly from you or through your affiliate links due to your non-compliance.
Why would you want to risk all of that when you can get your blog GDPR compliant in a matter of hours!
You won’t have to get lost in hundreds of stiff legal provisions written in full-on legalese.
Just take this course and follow the easy action steps.
Without much effort, you will have your blog ready for GDPR in less than 48 hours.
Created by a lawyer and expert in EU law and specifically designed for bloggers, this course leaves aside all the legal mumbo-jumbo and guides you through your full compliance step-by-step.
It gives you an overview of all GDPR key provisions relevant to bloggers in PLAIN ENGLISH and provides you with examples, templates and checklists for each action you will need to take to ensure your full compliance.
Could you just do it on your own?
Could you just get free advice on the internet?
But you would need to spend so much time trying to figure out what the heck you need to do and making sure your sources are reliable.
There is so much conflicting advice on the GDPR across the internet and some of it is plain wrong.
You don’t want to go through the trouble of taking action and implementing stuff, only to find out later it was all wrong! You’re back to square one and still exposed to hefty fines.
Taking this course is a no-brainer. And at such an affordable price, it's quite a steal!
"If you are a US blogger, you may think that GDPR doesn’t apply to you. Wrong. You may also think that if you don’t have email subscribers, you don’t collect personal data. Wrong again. I had no idea that we collect and process personal data via Google Analytics, blog comments, contact forms, cookies, third party plugins or by displaying ads. Additionally, GDPR provisions aren’t crystal clear and there are a LOT of grey areas. You can easily get hit for non-compliance. This course gives you only the data that applies to you as a blogger and gives the exact steps and templates to implement the GDPR provisions, skipping all the confusion. If you have a blog, this course is a must."

"The information on the new GDPR
compliance laws have just been overwhelming to me. After about a month of
research on how to become GDPR compliant, I was still struggling with fully
understanding the rules. Hence investing in this course was simply a no brainer.
I am so happy I took such action as the course did not disappoint. The
combination between the use of templates and, the easy-to-read and
easy-to-follow instructions helped me get through my blog’s policy creation
process with much speed and ease. So thank you, thank you, and thank
you, Lucrezia, for creating this course. The peace of mind this course has given me
alone, has made purchasing your course one of the very best investments I have
made for me and my blog."

"The GDPR has slid under my radar until the last minute so I was very relieved to find Lucrezia’s course and discover it covered so much content at such an affordable price. With her guidance and the fantastic templates I feel confident about getting my site and my email list compliant without a huge commitment of time or frustration."

Why should you take this course?
Peace of mind
Taking this course will give you peace of mind that your implementation is in line with the legal requirements under the GDPR.
This course will take all the guesswork out and save you tons of time that you can better spend writing your posts and growing your business.
It will save you money and headache. You can rely on professional legal expertise without having to hire a lawyer for hundreds of dollars an hour.
Please note that this course is meant for educational and informational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice. Purchasing and taking this course does not create an attorney-client relationship and you are encouraged to consult with a lawyer should your circumstances require.
It will give you evidence of the reasonable steps you take towards compliance required by the accountability principle of the GDPR. Under the GDPR, not only you need to comply, you’re also required to show that you took action to comply. Being able to demonstrate what you have done to comply will help mitigate any potential enforcement action. Enrolling in a course will show your good faith and will make it easier for you to take the steps you need to demonstrate.
Your own pace
This course will allow you to have everything in one place and learn and implement at your own pace. The GDPR introduces ongoing obligations that you need to uphold throughout your blogging life. You will be able to go back to the relevant lesson every time you receive a request from your users related to their rights under the GDPR in the future or in the unfortunate event a breach occurs.
Under the GDPR, you have ongoing obligations and will have to act upon requests from your users throughout your blogging life. You need to know what the GDPR means for your blog and what you need to do in the event of a request from one of your users, of a breach or of a complaint brought against you before a supervisory authority. You will have to apply the GDPR provisions on a daily basis. Of course, you can delegate the little tasks to finalise your compliance but if you completely outsource your compliance to someone else, be it another blogger, a lawyer, an agency or a VA, you won’t know what to do. Besides being expensive (agency prices range between $200 and $2,000, lawyers' fees are even higher), outsourcing your compliance could get you into trouble.The only exception would be permanently appointing a qualified DPO (even where it’s not mandatory under the GDPR) but this option would cost you thousands of dollars and even then you would still be the only one personally liable for compliance. This course is a small investment for your peace of mind for years to come.
This course will keep you up to date with future legislative development without incurring further expenses. A new EU Regulation on privacy and cookies is expected to enter into force in 2019. This course is a living document and will be updated with the new regulation and any other future legal development on the subject. This course comes with lifetime access to its current and all future versions at no extra cost to you.
So, what are you waiting for? Enrol in the course and start working on your compliance today.
It will be a walk in the park!
"With over 59,000 data breach notifications in the first year of GDPR, we're seeing more and more companies hit with fines related to it. As a small business owner, this was scary to me as my business was growing fast. I spent some time pretending that GDPR didn't exist because the information was complicated and confusing, and I hoped that as a relatively small blogger I wouldn't be affected by it (which isn't true - many small businesses are being hit with fines too). As my first business grew and I started up my second, the pressure was on to become compliant with GDPR. I usually do a lot of my own research, but the information on GDPR around the web was complicated, confusing, and often conflicted with other resources. Lucrezia's course offered clarity and actionable steps to get my blog legally compliant with GDPR. As a specialist in European law, I feel good about implementing her suggestions as I know she has a better understanding of the legal requirements than other legal officials in the blogging realm. Even if you think you're GDPR compliant, I would recommend this course as I think there are a lot of misunderstandings when it comes to GDPR, and the fact that it's updated makes it an invaluable resource when it comes to your business."

"This course has been an absolute life saver. I was late to find out about the GDPR because I am a brand new blogger. I was thinking this is it, I have just started and there is no way I'm going to be able to figure this out as a new blogger. Lucrezia broke everything down and gave me a clear understanding of the exact steps I needed to take with my blog to make sure I was GDPR compliant and was able to continue with my own blogging journey. I am so happy I came across this amazing resource. It is worth every penny for the stress relief alone! You won't regret it."

"As a new blogger, there was so much to learn about blogging and I didn't even think about the legal ramifications involved. After some research, I knew that it was so important to make sure that I was blogging legally and the fact that a large portion of my audience is from the UK meant I needed some guidance on being GDPR compliant. Most legal sites I came across offered their legal pages at a huge expense (which I didn't have as a newbie) and did not directly cover GDPR compliance. Then I found Lucrezia's GDPR course. Coming straight from a lawyer from the EU, it was absolutely everything I needed in one, low- priced package. She explains the tough legal jargon in easy to understand ways and with the bonus privacy, cookie and subscriber form templates, you can literally be set up and running compliant in no time. After about 15 minutes of personalization (which she highlights for ease), I had every page and requirement set up the right way, which totally put me at ease. I could finally run my blog without being worried about any legal infringements. I highly recommend any of Lucrezia's courses!!"

"This course is definitely worth taking! It has step by step instructions that are super simple to follow. It literally took me about 20 minutes to get my site to be GDPR compliant."
Kelly Marie | UniqueAndInspiring.com
"With new, more vigorous GDPR requirements looming, I decided to go through the GDPR Course being offered by Lucrezia and I’m so glad that I did. While I had a general concept of what was being called for, this course expanded that understanding. Thanks to Lucrezia breaking down the ‘legalese’ that goes along with the actual EU documents, I have a clearer idea now, of my duties and obligations as a blogger and at least a beginning comprehension of how to accomplish those. And for those who are beginners in the world of blogging, the information regarding which plugins will accomplish the necessary processes, including how to fill out the settings was extremely useful. I would highly recommend this course, with the easily understood information and language, as a must-do part of your education."

Who can take this course?
This course is for you if you’re a blogger and you either fly solo or have a small team.
It doesn’t matter where you’re based, this course is not country-focused and is suitable for bloggers based in the EU or in any other part of the world.
The lessons in this course can be applied by any blogger regardless of their niche or level of experience.
Whether you’re only starting out now or you’re a seasoned blogger, this course is for you.
No matter the volume of your traffic (10 or 100,000 page views a month), the size of your email list (0 or 10,000 subscribers) or the income you generate through your blog ($0 or $10,000 a month), this course is for you.
While this course applies to all niches, it’s particularly recommended to bloggers who blog about blogging, making money online and/or online marketing.
This is because bloggers in those niches not only need to comply with the GDPR on their own blog but they also need to keep the GDPR provisions in mind when blogging and offering advice to their audience on topics such as list building, email marketing, ads targeting and e-commerce.
This course is not for you if
- your website is very complex,
- you have a large team,
- you apply advanced e-commerce and marketing strategies and techniques, or
- you don’t have any users, visitors and subscribers from the EU (very unlikely).
In all other circumstances, grab this deal while it lasts!
Take your first step towards compliance, enrol now and get your blog GDPR compliant in 48 hours or less.
Protect your blog today, avoid steep fines tomorrow!
