LeaveDays and the GDPR
It’s been a recurring topic in the past few months: from the 25th of May, a new law with regard to data protection comes into effect, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This law prescribes several security demands for processors of data. This means that certain changes are going to occur in your surroundings, because parties who process your information are strengthening their security levels, or changing their terms and conditions. LeaveDays, as a processor of information, will also have to abide by this law.
In the near future, you will see a different login page when you go to your LeaveDays website (companyname.leavedays.com). Even though you are already a user of LeaveDays, you will have to complete a short registration procedure. In a nutshell, you will need to enter your current login details, and then enter new ones. Your new username has to be at least 4 characters, and must be unique. Your password should contain at least 6 characters, one upper case character, one lower case character, one digit, and one special character. Follow the instructions on the screen, and you should be done with the registration in no time!
What does this change entail for you, as an administrator?
Firstly, it means that your data is even more secure, and that you will have more control over your data. We have also changed our authentication method, which means that you will have to go through a short registration process. We have set new requirements for usernames and passwords, which is why all users must register with a unique username, and a safe password.
What does this change entail for your employees?
All your employees also have to register, abiding by the new requirements. To ensure that you can keep a smooth work flow, we strongly advise you to inform your employees of this. Every employee must complete the registration procedure to gain access to LeaveDays, which can cause many questions to come your way. Make sure to be one step ahead, and inform your employees of the fact that they need to re-register. This avoids you having to answer the same question over and over again. Thank you in advance!
