Hi Rhonda, Re :The FAQs on Position numbers aren't working. We will get these up in the next few days.
Also are we supposed to have 10 working pin positions? If you have registered a Number/Pin the system will auto assign an additional 9 Number/Pin combinations taking the total to 10, this is only done when the 1st Number/Pin is registered.
Subscribe to the Plan and a further 10 Number/Pin combinations are added taking the total to 20.


Thank You also Rhonda for your time and effort. Much Appreciated :)

We are building the KYC/AML/GDPR systems ourselves and will present the system as a Compliance as a Serice (CaaS) offer to every business that is going to have to comply

By subscribing to S2T Store/POS/CRM/Echovida and all Apps we give every business CaaS coverage automatically and this is something that NO other SaaS is able to offer ...they will have to spend a fortune on compliance or pay £5-00 to subscribe to any application and they get CaaS with it for free

TECHNICAL UPDATE AND PROGRESS REPORT 14/10/2017

FAQS and URL CLEANUP

As a result of Paddys meeting with Compliance services recently we were advised to clean up the URLs and remove any references to the Cash On Tap/Derivative Trading/P2P terms and correct some of the spelling errors throughout the site. It has been quite a big task and we are at the tail end of it now.

We will also be adding to the FAQS all the time as new ones come through and new Applications are added.

If you have any FAQS's that you think need to be added to the site, please send them through and we will take a look at them.

KYC

We are required to have a robust KYC system in place by May 2018 that takes into account the requirements set forth in the Money Laundering Act. We are still researching our options at this stage so will keep you posted as to how we are progressing on that front over the coming weeks.

FREGA MOBILE

We have had discussions with the Mobile Developers and we are currently waiting for them to come back to us in regards to the specifications we have previously discussed.

In the meantime we are building all the stored procedures and web services so that when we do focus more resources on Frega Mobile we will be ready to release updates relatively quickly.

FREGA RATING

We will broaden the catagories and now that we will have the FAQ's out of the way we can come back to the Frega Rating.

AZURE

We have spoken about the Move to Azure and how it was a good move, now, we start looking into how we can make it work for us in regards to bringing on 3rd Party developers.
It will be a learning curve for us, but we are up to the task .

GDPR ( General Data Protection Regulations)

We have been looking at the metrics that we want to pull through on the site and we are also looking at the metrics from an administrative point of view as to how many new subscribers have we had in the last 7,30,60 days, how many number position changes in the past 7, 30 and 60 days .How many Pledges. We can use this data to start tracking the trends so that we can see where to focus our efforts in regards to future development.

CAS SERVICES ( Compliance as a service )


We also spoke last week about how we are building our platform to comply with the latest regulatory environments. In light of all the regulations and changes within the industry and the actual logistics of some companies realistically being able to do this , we have realised that we are in a position to start offering CAS services to every business.

Please follow Paddys Forum posts on this.

SOMETHING2TRADE

We have had another solid week of S2T coding.

We are still fine tuning the base code to Post a listing/Edit the listing.This includes enabling all the fields and the ability to upload images.

Listing types: Auction, For sale, Free Item, Echovida Special.

Work has been done on the actual List function and the setting of Auction dates.

Just keep in mind we are coding live so until we say it is actually finished to share with others can we please keep it between members already on board for now as we still need to finish the URL sharing links so that any 'Cash Back's from the sale get split into the right tables.

Any images and listings that are in the database while we are still coding will be deleted before the official launch … to be advised.

Thanks Everyone

Regards

TECHNICAL UPDATE and PROGRESS REPORT 7/10/2017

FAQS’s

We have been chipping away at the list for the FCA in regards to the FAQs.

SOMETHING2TRADE

We have had another week of S2T coding and we have been working on:

Listing type: Auction, For sale, Free Item, Echovida Special and also the ability to edit your product listing.

We are still fine tuning the base code in order for you to be able post a listing, this includes being able to upload images, profile your listings and load Items.

We have also completed a lot more SQL Database work in behind S2T.

Just keep in mind we are coding live so until we say it is actually finished, please do not this share with others.

We still need to finish the URL sharing links so any 'Cash Backs' from the sales get split into the right tables.

Any images and listings that are in the database while we are still coding will be deleted before the official launch … to be advised.

GDPR

General Data Protection Regulations/European Data Protection Reforms


Why the reforms?

The current Data Protection Regulations were created in 1995.

Times have changed, natural persons increasingly make personal information available publicly and globally and modern day data processing relationships have moved on from where they were .

Technology allows both private companies and public authorities to make use of personal data on an unprecedented scale in order to pursue their activities.

With progress having being made in information technology, it is making the processing and exchanging of data much easier, so those regulations are now outdated and the rules are being updated for the protection of the fundamental rights and the freedom of people in regards to the processing of their personal data.

In the past where silence, pre-ticked boxes or inactivity constituted consent, this will no longer apply and consent will need to be clear and affirmative.

The new laws require that when designing, you need to design for compliance and to consider privacy and the impact of privacy on everything you do.

We are designing with these compliance regulations in mind.

Everything we do will fall in line with the reforms which will come to pass in May 2018.

Where this also has an affect on us is that this directive provides the regulatory framework under which Microsoft transfers personal data out of the EU.

Microsoft was the first cloud service provider to receive a letter of endorsement and approval from the group.
This ensures that Microsoft customers can freely move data through the Microsoft Cloud from the EEA( European Economic Area ) to the rest of the world and provides assurance that any personal data leaving the EEA will be transferred in compliance with EU data-protection laws and meets the requirements of the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC.

So as you may or may not be aware we recently moved all of our data over to Microsoft Azure.

Microsoft has the most compliance coverage out of any cloud provider and they are continually assessing the EU standards, and updating their services as needed.

The move to Azure was a good move, this guarantees that the data we collect and transmit meets the requirements of the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and insures our Members and investors that we are not building castles on sand.

With the designing for compliance in mind we need to demonstrate accountability , what data we are processing, where our systems are, we need to have the ability to supply detailed processing records , which we do have.

We need to advise the Members that the system collects cookies , which we will do.

As per the attached screen we will let members know what information we have on them, the money they have received, how it was used , the people they have interacted with and their profiled information.



Everything we are doing in regards to design and compliance also dovetails into what is required from us in regards to our eMoney licence application.

KYC PROCESSESS

We are currently looking at integrating Zoom as part of our KYC Process

CROWD FUNDING

A Round : For £250k with www.crowdcube.com Please refer to the Zoom recording for further details.

Hi Clive, In response to your question in regards to Frega Mobile : We have sent through the Web services to the Mobile developers so they can start on the Mobile development. So the work has begun. How long will it take ? This can not be defined at this stage.We will be working with the developers until they come up with a product that we are happy to release so there will be a lot of backwards and forwards communication taking place over the coming week/weeks to get the functionality up as soon as we can.
