Over the past months, we’ve been preparing for the GDPR to allow our customers a smooth transition into compliance. We've done a comprehensive audit of our systems and our suppliers and have minimized the amount of vendors working with your personal data.
This page will keep you informed of our work related to the GDPR.
What have we done so far
We have ensured that Publitas does not act as a processor of your reader’s personal data in the sense of the GDPR. This means we do not set any cookies when your readers are viewing your content and process no personal data other than the IP address (which is only stored temporarily, in an isolated system for security purposes). Our internal analytical system has been designed with privacy in mind and has never relied on cookies or other online identifiers.

Consent for Google Analytics tracking
If you’ve connected a Google Analytics property to your Publitas account, you’re able to ask your readers for consent for your usage of Google Analytics. Only when consent has been provided will the user be identified as a unique user. Without consent, the session is completely anonymous (opt-in).
Reader feedback disabled from May 25.
If you're an enterprise customer and using our Reader feedback feature, this feature will be disabled from May 25. This feature was the only place in the Publitas Viewer dealing with personal data and we've made the estimation that the benefit of builtin feedback does not outweigh the additional efforts required under GDPR.
