Introduced on 25th May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most significant legislative change in Europe relating to the data protection laws since the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC in 1995.
GDPR extends the scope of EU data protection law to all foreign companies processing the data of EU residents and defines a new set of "digital rights" for EU citizens.
Below are some important documents and information about our implementation and compliance to GDPR.Our Sub-Processors
The General Data Protection Regulation is EU law that replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 in the UK and the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC 1995. It places greater obligations on how organisations handle personal data.
The GDPR applies to organisations and individuals operating within the EU, whether or not they are based in the EU. This means it applies to organisations outside the EU that offer goods or services to individuals within the EU.
The GDPR defines 'personal data' as any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in a particular reference to an identifier.
The GDPR definition provides for a wide range of personal identifiers, some of which are obviously personal data (such as names and address), as well as data which can be used to identify an individual indirectly (for example an IP address).
