GDPR

How Uncode helps you

Privacy Preferences

Privacy preferences and consent management can be handled directly from the front end of your site, thanks to banner notifications.

Native Fallbacks

There are convenient fallbacks for all native modules of Uncode connected to external services that send and receive personal data.

Consent Logic

You can include and exclude content based on the user's consent. This is convenient if you use extra modules or plugins that send data.

GDPR Tools

The new WordPress 4.9.6 and WooCommerce 3.4 provide tools that help you meet the GDPR legislation requirements.

Let’s try to understand

When you use a service like Google Fonts, Google Analytics, YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter on your website, some personal data (usually your IP address) is sent to the provider in exchange for the free service offered. This data is then used to create targeted advertisements.
Suppose that on your website’s home page, you use a YouTube video as the background for your main header. When this video is watched, some personal data about the viewer is sent to service provider (YouTube). It’s not compliant with the GDPR to simply include the video and communicate to the user that it's possible to disable it. After all, by the time the page loads, YouTube (in this example) has already collected some personal data.

The GDPR stipulates that users will first have to provide approval through consent before any data is processed. Obtaining this consent needs to be of the utmost importance.


Animated Headings

You cannot understand good design if you do not understand people. Design is for people.

Ive never had a problem with a dumb client. There is no such thing as a bad client. Part of our job is to do good work and get the client to accept it.

Digital design is like painting, except the paint never dries.

But I find that for myself, without exception, the more I deal with the work as something that is my own, as something that is personal, the more successful it is.

Graphic design will save the world right after rock and roll.

How we earn success

Radiant uses four guiding principles when it comes to supporting our customers on their journey toward digital transformation.

Radiant knows that maintaining a competitive edge it is not only about connecting with customers in new and innovative ways, but also about continuously keeping them engaged.

When we consider customer needs, Radiant considers all stakeholders — executives driving strategy, employees executing work, and customers engaging.

Radiant knows that digital transformation is a disruptive shift, and it requires using the right technology effectively to help ensure business continuity during transformation.

As most companies have embarked on the digital transformation journey, it’s imperative for them to keep pace with the technological curve, at the same time quickly and efficiently integrating new systems, processes, culture, and customer experiences into all areas of the enterprise.
Based on our four guiding principles, Radiant has distilled our solutions into three distinct areas – application transformation, IT transformation, and workforce transformation.


IT Transformation

IT organization are quickly becoming primary drivers of innovation. IT transformation is critical to keep pace in a highly-competitive digital world by creating and operating a high-performance engine that allows you to see a 360-degree view of your customer, and then it enables the customer experience delivery.

Modernize infrastructure

Maximize efficiency and customer experience by consolidating all customer data into a single omnichannel. With Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), you will be able to anticipate customer needs and improve the quality of service.

Operational Support
Radiant will support every step of your IT transformation journey, from cloud-migration to upkeep of intelligent infrastructures.

Experienced IT transformation is critical, whether you are modernizing systems, adopting cloud platforms, or using data to better understand your customers. Radiant will help you deliver IT Transformation solutions to efficiently execute and maintain an intelligent infrastructure that enables the digital enterprise.


Workforce Transformation

A company’s ability to efficiently and effectively manage change while implementing digital transformation will increase the chances for success. Slow adoption by employees leads to reduced returns and can even result in failed initiatives. Employee ability and engagement is an integral part of the digital transformation process and is often overlooked.

Change management
Change can be arduous and disruptive; people’s ability to shift their day-to-day behaviors and mindsets will determine the results of any initiative that you implement. Radiant change management services will empower your workforce by giving them the knowledge and tools to change in a natural, seamless way.

Digital Communication
We will establish open communication with all stakeholders- easing the transition while shaping and delivering the information that helps sets the stage for cultural and behavioral shifts. Radiant plans and executes digital communication programs to inform and educate and thereby removing barriers.

Learning & Development
Through training and competency development Radiant will help your employees grow their skills, share their knowledge, and create a more collaborative environment. Providing avenues for skill development increases engagement and accelerates adoption.

Effective workforce transformation is essential, whether you are managing change, building organizational competency, or evangelizing the value of your digital transformation initiatives. Radiant will help you plan and develop Workforce Transformation solutions that will help you shape and deliver transformational change.
