Hi Webflow users,
In light of the whole EU privacy shield issue right now I am trying to find an answer as to whether I can continue to use Webflow for EU clients.
And just to make this crystal clear, I am not a lawyer, I cannot afford a lawyer to explain this stuff to me, I simply want some advice from other EU creators (perhaps if I am very lucky established professionals who have said lawyers and have asked these same questions). I will not seek legal action against any advice offered in this thread (or any thread on this forum for that matter).
In light of the privacy shield agreement being revoked, Webflow offered an updated Data Processing Agreement which in their words " governs how this data will be processed and protected".
I am trying to understand how this is intended to be used and its effects on me and my clients.
What does this DPA actually mean? It seems to me to be just an explanation of how Webflow processes user data.
As I understand it the owner of the website must sign this DPA.
Does singing this mean Webflow is GDPR compliant?
I appreciate my questions may seem asinine in nature but I have read many responses and cannot seem to find a consistent answer as to whether or not Webflow is GDPR compliant. I cannot put clients of mine into a grey legal area, I need an answer to this before I can continue my business.
What I find most confusing is that there are many EU designers who have simply not commented on the privacy shield issues. Does this mean my concerns over the DPA and GDPR are baseless or are they all operating when they really shouldn’t be?
I feel like I am missing some key information here, it is incredibly confusing and frustrating.
Thanks for any help offered.
