The EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) take effect May 25, and we are fully committed to ensure our customers’ data is secure.
On May 25, 2018, a new European privacy regulation called The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect.
GDPR is a new set of rules designed to give EU citizens more control over their personal data.
This regulation will be implemented in all local privacy laws across the entire EU and EEA region. It will apply to all companies selling to and storing personal information about citizens in Europe, including companies on other continents. It provides citizens of the EU and EEA with greater control over their personal data and assurances that their information is being securely protected across Europe.
The GDPR applies to EU based companies and those that collect data of EU citizens, regardless of a physical presence in the EU.
The GDPR is the EU’s way of giving individuals, prospects, customers, contractors and employees more power over their data and less power to the organizations that collect and use such data for monetary gain.
