Data Protection Regulations

1 views 0

Zephr comes equipped with a range of out-of-the-box features to ensure you meet data protection regulations when using the Zephr Identity Management Platform.

Inactive User Retention Period

Zephr offers the ability to set an inactive user retention period to ensure you are not storing unnecessary data on Users who are no longer active on your site.

To configure this, navigate to Settings > Identity Management within your Zephr Admin Console. At the top of the page you will see the heading Data Protection Regulations and a slider setting called Inactive User Retention Period.

Drag the slider to the time period you wish to set for your data retention period, scroll to the bottom of the page, and click Save.

Once saved, any Users who have not had an active session within Zephr for that period of time will have their details removed from your Identity Store. Users who return to your site following this will need to register again before being able to login.

If you are yet to configure this, it will be set to one (1) year by default.

Anonymous User Cookies

Zephr stores cookies for Anonymous User Sessions in order to provide anonymous grants such as Anonymous Meters, Entitlements and Credits. These cookies allow you to offer Trial experiences to Users who would normally have to register or pay for access to your content.

In some instances, however, companies do not wish to set cookies for Anonymous Users. If you wish to disable these, navigate to Settings > Identity Management within your Zephr Admin Console. At the top of the page, you will see the heading Data Protection Regulations. Under this heading you will find a tick box called Disable Anonymous User Cookies. Tick this box, scroll to the bottom of the page, and click Save.

Once saved, Zephr will no longer store session cookies for Anonymous Users.
