The European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect tomorrow and many website owners are scrambling to be compliant. Fines can be severe: up to 20 million Euros or 4% of revenues. Another reason to hope that the anti-democratic and anti-Israel EU will break apart.

An automatic chatbot to see if you need to comply,
A Guide for Designers

It was prepared by Microsoft and is for bigger companies. More procedural and less hands on orientation.
If these tools don’t fit your needs, you can find many more by searching on the Internet.
