4 Key GDPR Questions that still need Answering

With only a few months to go before GDPR comes into force, we still have some very significant questions which have yet to be answered. The UK Government will not be publishing the final legislation and guidance on these questions until December, at which point it will either become much harder to use CRM data for B2B, or the legislation will have it’s teeth removed in the UK (though not in the rest of the EU / EEA).

 

Here are the key questions that when answered will ...

Affino and GDPR

AffinoPrivacyFeaturedGDPRCompliance+-
Affino and GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR as it is better known is possibly the biggest steamroller to hit media companies, and all marketing aspects of companies in general since the advent of the Internet. It has been created in the advent of mass marketing surveillance and profiling being transacted by most companies, as well as to help combat Spam, over-sharing and selling of individual’s personal data, and key principles such as the ’right to be forgotten’.

Affino 7.5.17 Release - Performance Enhancements and Bug Fixes

We have a new Affino performance update and bug fix release. It is an important release with dozens of essential fixes, and of particular importance for large and busy sites as there are some key performance improvements.

 

We are in the middle of the Affino 8 development cycle so you will see new features throughout, however these are in most cases still under refinement and will be announced in the next release, or indeed in the Affino 8 release.

PPA Festival 2017 the Best one Yet

This year’s PPA Festival was the best one we’ve been to yet, and it really felt that the consensus was that this was the best one overall for everyone. Tobacco Dock was a great venue, albeit a bit hard to get to like many of the larger London venues.

Affino 8 Coming July 2017

Affino 8 is nearly here. We’re now able to pull together all the ideas we’ve had for launching Affino 8, so it is an exciting moment for us to have it so close.

 

We’re currently working through the final sprints towards having Affino 8 feature complete. We will be launching one final Affino 7.5 release which is the third of the major events releases, which will be with you soon. The one after that will be Affino 8.

 

We’re down to ...

Tip: Filtered Lists

SeminarsAffino Tip
Tip: Filtered Lists

Affino allows you to very quickly create a filtered listing, in this case a seminar programme.

 

The Ocean Media Group digital team needed to create a conference programme quickly for the Housing 2017.

 

The solution was to create a standard article channel, apply a slightly customised Skin, import the topics for the seminars, import the seminars, then simply turn on the Scoped Search on the section with the relevant topic filters.

Tip: Make the Most of your 404 Page

I love a good idea, and really like the new 404 pages on the Credit Strategy site.

 

Instead of showing a sitemap, which makes sense on most sites, they will show you the latest headlines and Tweets when you get lost. A great way to engage readers who might otherwise browse elsewhere.

 

Experience it here: Credit Strategy 404.
