Our GDPR Compliance Platform Recommendations

Ready to explore the new GDPR compliance platform for personal data?

Transparent. Accountable. Empowering

Consentric is a cloud platform that delivers governance across your organisation in a way that is transparent, accountable and empowering for both you and your customers.

Consentric supports GDPR compliance ensuring organisations can manage all 6 lawful bases for data processing including Legitimate Interest and Consent. It ensures individuals always know what personal data is held and why. It gives individuals the power to exercise their enhanced rights under GDPR in 3 ways:

  • It delivers transparency.
  • It empowers individuals to take control over the processing of their data through consent and objection workflows.
  • It gives individuals the authority to activate their data rights.

Consentric empowers individuals to make the choices they want and that builds trust between you both. As importantly, because all the activity is captured in an immutable audit trail, you can demonstrate organisational accountability – which is required under the GDPR.

How does the Consentric platform work?

At its heart, Consentric has 2 stand-out capabilities.

1 – It has the ability to apply our unique “5W” framework – a system that records the 5 key pieces of data – to every single data subject:

  • What personal data has actually been collected.
  • Who is using or has access to that data.
  • Why the data has been collected and its purpose.
  • When the data was collected.
  • Where the data was captured and stored.

2 – Consentric’s second stand-out capability is the ability to handle all the “6Ls” – the 6 lawful bases for processing personal data across an entire organisation and every customer touch-point.

  1. Consent of the data subject
  2. A legitimate interest
  3. The performance of a contract
  4. Compliance with a legal obligation
  5. Protection of the vital interests of a data subject or another person
  6. Performance of a task carried out in the public interest

Who in your organisation will benefit from Consentric?

Consentric is designed to assist everyone who processes personal data and who needs to demonstrate GDPR compliance.

Marketing

Consentric is hugely beneficial for those in marketing because it can increase engagement with your customers. For example, because consent is captured and objections can be recorded, you can maintain communications with an individual. That increases trust which in turn builds loyalty. And that’s good for business.

Compliance

Consentric gives you the assurance that your company is adhering to GDPR compliance in two ways. Firstly, in terms of an immutable audit trail recording all interactions including Consent and Objections to Legitimate Interest justifications. And secondly, in terms of facilitating customers’ data rights. It also maintains a record of all Privacy Statements and Policies across all touchpoints.

For data managers, Consentric provides quality and compliant data underpinned by one single source of permissions – right across the company. This allows you to select the right individuals for the right comms or other activities.
