GDPR Compliance

Our commitment to GDPR and information security standards

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is an EU Regulation that replaced the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (DPD) to significantly enhance the protection of the personal data of EU citizens and increase the obligations on organizations who collect or process personal data. It came into force on May 25, 2018. The regulation builds on many of the 1995 Directive’s requirements for data privacy and security but includes several new provisions to bolster the rights of data subjects and add harsher penalties for violations.


Our commitment
