what is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation is the biggest change to personal data in 20 years.

It requires businesses to be more transparent with how they are going to process and use personally identifiable data as well as being able to produce any data they have on an individual and ‘anonymise’ this information if asked.

sitecore compliancy

Whilst Sitecore provides a consolidated view of digital interactions on site, none of the versions of the platform have a standalone CMS user tool or interface to facilitate the ‘right to erasure’ or the ‘right to data portability’ for PII held in the Sitecore infrastructure.

In light of the regulation, Sagittarius have developed an exclusive solution to support customers using Sitecore and their GDPR challenges.

So how does this product support GDPR compliance?

The tool creates a new button within the Sitecore Launchpad that allows brands to:

  • Extract PII data that is stored in the xDB and List Manager using a name or email ID
  • Anonymise user data inline with the ‘right to be forgotten’ regulation.

This tool is available to anyone currently on Sitecore 8.x or Sitecore 9. Users on an early version of the platform would need to upgrade to at least Sitecore 8 to implement the tool.

sitecore 9 and GDPR

Sitecore XP 9 incorporates a number of privacy-by-design and privacy-by-default principles and new features. These include support for anonymizing data, the ability to annotate data and treat data as sensitive, depending on your needs and your configuration choices.

This is information is however not surfaced in a marketing tool or feature in XP 9 and will still need to be managed via a bespoke GDPR interface or a CRM system.
