Our Commitment to GDPR compliance

As of May 25 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect, affecting users in the European Union. As defined by Council of the European Union, Interinstitutional File:2012/0011 (COD): “The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas. The GDPR aims primarily to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.”
