Inspectmyclassic site is now GDPR compliant with SSL Certificatification and ‘Green ‘ SSL Padlock status.
We’ve all not been able to escape it… General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
In a way, receiving all of these emails over the past few weeks is a good thing as we were able to pick and choose whether we wanted to continue receiving emails from various companies and websites we’d dealt with over the past years.
The other issue that we’ve been working towards solving was Googles decision to flag (through Google Chrome) all non SSL based websites as “Not Secure”. SSL or Secure Sockets Layer is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.
We worked with our hosting company to purchase and install an SSL Certificate and then spent a few hours updating all parts of the website to ensure that all internal and external links were changed from http:// to https:// to utilise the SSL Certificate – once we were satisfied that everything worked ok we submitted the website to Qualys SSL Labs and www.whynopadlock.com for interrogation.
We have not had to the GDPR updates or SSL installation with our .co.uk or .net websites as they do not collect or store any customer information.
The inspectmyclassic.co.uk website is now fully varified and showing the correct ‘Green’ safe padlock symbol.
We will be conducting periodic (Monthly) scans via www.whynopadlock.com to ensure that we retain the ‘Secure Connection’ status of the website.
The Secure Seal will appear at the bottom of the Checkout Page under the GDPR Notifications
