GDPR Signing-in Books

"What do I do with my visitors book"? We get asked this question very often. Under GDPR the data you collect will count as personal data and as such visitor books should be kept safe and should not show the current visitor the names of those that have previously visited. This sounds trivial but of course you need to keep a log of all visitors for fire safety and also as part of your building security. So, what do you do?

There are many different options including complicated electronic signing-in systems and much more low-tech signing-in books designed to keep the data safe. You can choose whichever you prefer but just for example, a couple of books which seem to fit the bill are:

  1. This is a nice version if you want to give out badges.

  2. This is cheaper and has more slots to sign but no badges.

I just googled ‘GDPR compliant signing-in book’. There are many other options so take a look and choose whichever you like the best! Be careful, many companies sell the same product for vastly different prices.

You definitely do not need a complicated, expensive, electronic gizmo. Simple precautions will suffice.

Good luck all.
