GDPR Refresher

GDPR: General Data Protection Regulation. Europe is now covered by the world's strongest data protection rules.

The mutually agreed General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was designed to modernise laws that protect the personal information of your customers.

After four years of preparation and debate GDPR was finally approved by the EU Parliament on 14 April 2016 and was enforced on 25 May 2018.

GDPR brings new rights for customers to access the information your company holds about them. This has lead to obligations for better data management for businesses, and a new regime of fines for those businesses who do not comply with the new rules.

The new rules enable your customers to gain more control over you. This includes information such as name, contact details, computer location, race and sexual orientation.

All companies, small or large now have to provide a lawful reason as to why they have customer's data and what they intend to do with it.

Find out how GDPR could be affecting your startup and how it can be affecting your customers by possesing their valuable data. Find out how to avoid fines, how to manage data effectively and most importantly how to use GDPR to YOUR advantage within your startup.
