How Hubris can support data compliance
We’ve built Hubris with GDPR in mind and provide the following methods to support your GDPR compliance plan:
Capturing legal basis and creating a paper trail
With Hubris, any personal information you capture from LinkedIn will be labelled as such in HubSpot and datestamped, providing a full paper trail on how and when any new contacts were created (as well as a complete history of any changes to those contacts since then, whether they were made by Hubris or another member of your team).
The alternative to using an automated system like Hubris is to copy and paste details from LinkedIn into HubSpot manually, which may result in inaccurate and incomplete data due to human error. Similarly, storing contact data in spreadsheets is susceptible to the same issues and will not provide a complete paper trail.
Only capturing necessary data
Hubris allows you to be selective about the information you capture, so you can ensure you only store personal information where you have a legitimate interest to do so.
