I'm a Software Engineer, and I've just taken my first "side gig" job in hopes of becoming Freelance one day. I'm based in the UK. My Client told me exactly what they want, and i've built it. However, I am now growing concerned about the accountability I have under the GDPR. I believe my Client is unaware of how strict GDPR is (personally I was until I started my research today).
So, it seams that to be GDPR compliant, i'd need to add several features to the software. The problem is, these are of course features the Client has not asked me for. I will highlight it to them, but if they say no (As, it might sound like me just asking to write more code for more money), what can I do? If I am liable, then I'm let with no choice but to cancel the job.
The software is a CRM for B2B email and telephone marketing, but it holds the information of persons who work at the target businesses. I have an "unsubscribe" feature for the emails, but that's all.
I hope someone can help, or point me towards it. Thanks
