Check out this article for information on what we're doing and what you can do to ensure compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
What is the GDPR?
The European Union is updating its data protection regulations to protect its citizens. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulates how companies access and process the data of people in the European Union (EU). This applies to all companies who do business with people that are EU citizens, regardless of where the company is based.
You can review details of how GDPR requires protection of personal data here.
