    Decided to not comply with GDPR

    Yulya Toporochan

      Hi Marketo friends,

       

      Our company has decided to NOT comply with GDPR because we are not actively pursuing business in the EU. So now, we need to adapt our forms and websites so that information

      from EU citizens is not collected. We are thinking of a solution for the website by blocking the cookie collection. I'm wondering what we can do in terms of Marketo landing pages including forms.

      Is the only solution to exclude EU citizen from downloading our content (design the form, so it only allows submissions from the US) or has anybody implemented other solutions?

       

      Interested to hear other opinions on that.

       

      Thanks,

      Yulya

          Seems risky. Your firm has no physical or legal presence in EU?

           

          But you could work with your developers to only show US as Country and post disclaimers that person is not EU citizen or resident.

           

          IP reverse lookup tools and Inferred Country would help. Won't be perfect though.

              Hi Josh,

               

              No, we don't have a physical or legal presence in EU. We are thinking of restricting the form fields to only US and the respective federal states, so the user doesn't have the option of selecting EU countries. Good tip about the disclaimer, we should definitely add this. Do you have an example of a campaign using the IP reverse loop up filters? Something visual that I can replicate? We definitely make the UX worse by implementing this type of things but it seems like there is no way around it at the moment.

               

              Thanks,
