Dataships allows you to build a 'Data Access Gateway' between your company and your customers. By setting up your gateway, you are ensuring that you are meeting your new compliance obligations while simultaneously building trust with your users.
All you need to do to get started is to tell us the data sources you are using - we've already pre built and maintain the integrations so you don't have to. Once this is down, you can choose one of the four ways you can activate your Data Access Gateway.
Now you can return to focus on your core work, safe in the knowledge that your gateway is working in the background ensuring you are fulfilling your GDPR & CCPA obligations, while delighting your customers.
To start you need to pick the type of Data Access Gateway that suits your company and needs the best. We provide four different ways depending on your preferences:
If you would prefer to bring users to a dedicated section of your site, rather than using the form as a pop up you can embed the form directly into a webpage. Choose this option if you want to show the Data Access Gateway on a specific page only e.g. your privacy page. Copy the Embedded version of code snippet from the Control Panel and paste it inside the html body tag of the webpage where you would like the Data Access Gateway to appear.
This is the version of the Data Access Gateway with its own URL, sitting on Dataships website. This is ideal for businesses that collect customer data but do not have a website or would like to redirect their customers to Dataships to manage their data relationships.
Data Sources are the systems and applications where your customer's data is stored e.g. Mailchimp, Stripe etc.
Create and maintain your data collection and management forms to facilitate healthy data relationships with your users.
Create and maintain historical data of your data subjects details such as weight, height or medical data.
You can attach a document with a Data Subject. The Data Subject can then see the document in the Data Access Gateway. We currently support the following file extensions: pdf, jpeg, doc, docx, jpg, png, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx.
Your data subjects will be able to port their data automatically from the Data Access Gateway. A complete history can be seen in Control Panel > Audit Logs > Port Data History section.
Your data subjects will be able to send Erasure Requests automatically from the Data Access Gateway. This will be show in Control Panel > Case Management > Erasure Request section. A complete history can be seen in Control Panel > Audit Logs > Erasure Request History section.
