GDPR is coming. Are your ready for it?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years -we’re here to make sure you’re prepared.

What’s GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU.

The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

What are the requirements of the GDPR?

Consent to store data

Data subjects must be given the opportunity to choose whether to consent to the processing of their personal data

Consent withdrawal

Data subjects must have the ability to easily withdraw their consent to process their personal data

Right to access

Data subjects have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning them is being collected, where, and for what purpose. Further, the controller is required to provide, upon request, a copy of the personal data, free of charge, in an electronic format.

Right to be forgotten

Data subjects have the right to request that the data controller erase his/her personal data, cease further dissemination of the data, and stop any third parties from processing of the data.

Breach notification

Data subjects must be notified of any data breach which is likely to “result in a risk for the rights and freedoms of individuals”, within 72 hours of first having become aware of the breach.

Data portability

Data subjects have the right to receive their personal data in a portable electronic format that allows them to transfer the data to another controller.

Who is affected by GDPR requirements?

The regulation applies if the data controller, an organization that collects data from EU residents, or processor, an organization that processes data on behalf of data controllers like cloud service providers or the data subject (person) is based in the EU. The regulation also applies to organizations based outside the EU if they collect or process personal data of individuals located inside the EU.

What is personal data?

According to the European Commission, “personal data is any information relating to an individual, whether it relates to his or her private, professional or public life. It can be anything from a name, a home address, a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social networking websites, medical information, or a computer’s IP address.

What Raklet does to address GDPR?

As a cloud service provider for your organization, Raklet is also affected by GDPR.

Data security is one of our priorities. You can find our privacy policy here.

In the frame of GDPR, we ensure the convenience of all third-party service providers to the requirements.

We provide all technical features which allow you to manage personal data collection process transparently. You can inform your users about all GDPR requirements while the application process and take their consent. They can access their profiles and withdraw their consent whenever they want.

Your right to be forgotten is always protected. You can cancel your account and delete all your data whenever you want.

How to prepare your organization for GDPR?

Sponsorship 101: Make them say YES!

Being a non-profit or for-profit organization, sponsorship is all about relationship building with organizations. After creating a list of potential sponsors, you have to make the best strategy to attract them.

Assume that it is an online date. You need to stalk them all night before the first meeting, you have to be certain about what you want, introduce yourself with a fascinating presentation and you should suggest a plan with a minimum risk to not to lose them.

1. Tell your story

You need to describe your organization, what you do, your demographic audience etc.

2. Be specific

Make sure that you explain the estimated funding amount you needed.

3. No lie, minimum risk

They are already taking a risk by sponsoring your organization. Be realistic and tell them what you want to hear!

4. Stalk your sponsors

Find the right person to be in touch with this process. I mean, sad but true, believe me, you won’t get what you want if you have 5-hours-talk with the quality manager of the company.

5. Carry on!

“Sometimes carrying on, just carrying on, is the superhuman achievement, ” says Albert Camus.

Ask yourself two questions; will it work and does it worth? If it works and worths, what are you waiting for? Go on with your plan. Don’t give up if it doesn’t work with them. Maybe they are the one who’s wrong? Repeat all this process with other companies. You are going to find the right one anyway.

Good luck!

PS: You can manage all the communication process with your sponsors via your Raklet account;)

environment organization

How to Empower Your Environmental Organization?

All over the world, environmental organizations constitute an important part of the NGOs. They are fighting for environmental rights in local, regional, national or international scale. We appreciate their awareness about the future of our planet and support their works as much as we can.

If you work within an environmental organization, you probably try to widen your community to gain attention for environmental issues. So, regardless of the scale of your activity area, you have a community management process.

When it comes to an environmental organization, the role of volunteers can not be underestimated. But of course, your community does not consist only of your volunteers. Your teammates, interlocutors in local or regional governments, press members, representatives of umbrella organizations…It is possible to expand the list of actors with whom you have a constant relation.

So, you might be seeking efficient tools for a better communication which would lead to a better cooperation. Maybe, you have lots of valuable projects but you don’t have enough time and energy to realize them. Your database can be out of date. You might be importing/ exporting your data between different tools. Event organizations can be a nightmare for you because they are exhaustive and you don’t have necessary human resources. Or even worse,  as all your data is stored only on your office computer, you can not work out of office.

Let’s take a closer look at how Raklet can help you with all these processes.

  • All your database related to your members, volunteers, event participants, donors is located on the same platform.  You don’t have to export/ import your data between standalone tools. Even more, you can add press members, contact persons in the related institutions… You can easily categorize all these people according to the criteria that you define.
  • Based on your categories, you can manage all your communication process via emails or SMS.
  • You, your teammates or volunteers can log in the platform from everywhere. There is no time or space limitation. So, you can use the platform while you are working in the field for example. All you need is the internet connection.
  • Organizing your events such as your seminars, training or outdoor activities is not difficult at all. You can easily sell your tickets or track your attendees.
  • You can collect your payments online and keep track of them. It is possible to create public donation campaigns as another way of creating environmental awareness.

In your struggle for environmental justice, you are not alone. Raklet is with you along the way in order to help you to widen your community.

business-association

Do You Have the Right Tools for the Business Association Management?

What is the main purpose of a business association? Professional cooperation, having a voice in the related activity area, social advantages…Yes. But, we all agree that networking opportunity is one of the most important motivations to become a member of a business association.

Running a business association means having a network management process. If you still manage your database manually or use standalone tools for communication, payment, and event organization processes; you probably know how exhaustive it can be.

Actually, all you need is the right tools. Let’s take a closer look at the tricks of an effective network management and how Raklet can help you along the way.

Effective Network Management

To understand the role of a business association, we can use the distinction between strong ties and weak ties of Granovetter. Weak ties can be our contacts on Linkedin. They are there and we can communicate with them if it is necessary (but usually we don’t do it). And we have strong ties with our friends, or family members etc.

Granovetter reminds us that to get information about latest news, ideas or new job opportunities, our weak ties are crucial. So, if we are surrounded only with our strong ties, it is possible that we run around with circles.

But for collaboration opportunities, we might need a little more than the weak ties in our Linkedin pages. So, effective network management situates between these two extreme points. Maybe, the most important job of a business association is to provide an environment for building these stronger ties.

What makes a tie stronger?

Consistency of Communication

As you know, the density of acquaintanceship is important for getting a tie stronger. And this density requires consistent communication. Raklet gives the opportunity to classify your contacts by the criteria that you define. You can manage your audience by tags, lists or custom types. You can send them individual or bulk emails / SMS about the issues which really interest them. Moreover, you can make it in a durable manner with the insights related to your audience.

Private Social Network

By the private social network, your members can communicate with each other. Let’s say that an association member search for help for the marketing process of its new product. All he/she has to do is to message directly to the related association member. Strengthening the bonds between your members and creating new business opportunities is not difficult.

Event Organisations

Sharing ideas, experience and latest news about the activity area is the best way of making a tie stronger. Events take an important part in this process. By giving the opportunity to new acquaintanceships, they allow creating collaborations.

Raklet allows you to organize your events in the easiest way. You can create your events, announce them, collect RSVP and keep track of your attendees.

Raklet is with you during every phase of your network management process. Because the success of your business association depends on how much it allows networking.

Grow Your Alumni Association with the Right Tools

We guess you already know that an effective community management requires knowing your community well. For an alumni association, our unique common ground is “graduation” from a particular institution. So we have a community quite heterogeneous. That’s why knowing well our community is a more complicated process.

As an effective alumni association management system, Raklet gives you all the necessary tools in this process. But first of all, you must have satisfactory answers to these questions. As a graduate student:

  • Why do I need to be a member of an alumni association?
  • Why  should  I donate to my alumni association?

Why do I need to be a member of an alumni association?

Your alumni might be thinking like “I can find and contact with people who have graduated from my school via social networks. So I don’t need to be a member of the alumni association.”

Thus, you must promise more than the functions of social networks. As a complementary platform to Facebook or Linkedin, Raklet’s creative solutions come into play at this point:

  • With social network integration, you can retrieve general information of your members and classify them by the criteria that you define. You can manage your audience by tags, lists or custom types. And set up a communication strategy in consideration of your categories.  You can send individual or bulk emails / SMS about the issues which really interest your alumni.  
  • All the graduates come together on the same platform and they strengthen their ties with other graduates. Well-designed filtration opportunities make the process even easier.
  • You and your members can publish job announcements and apply. You can make your association more attractive with the collaboration and networking opportunities.

Why should I donate to my alumni association?

It might be not a good idea to ask your recent alumni to make a generous donation. That can damage your relation. But with your database always up-to-date, you can categorize your alumni and ask for a donation in appropriate ways and amounts.

But after all, you have to show your alumni the results of your donation campaigns. It is important to show them the importance of their donations by the concrete results. For example, you can regularly update them about the scholars who benefit from scholarship funds.

Your Raklet donation page allows your graduates to donate in different amounts. What’s more, they can choose to make recurring donations. Don’t forget that easy donation process will increase the rate of donations.

Alumni association management requires diligence in your relations with your graduates. Raklet makes it easy for you to connect and grow your community.
