GDPR - What have we done?

You've probably heard a lot about it (or at least ignored it) in your inbox, but today's the day!

We urge you to read our updated Terms & Conditions and Privacy & Cookies policy to get a better understanding of this change. On this issue a very clear guideline of the European data protection authorities has already been published in November 2017.

The U.S. does not have any such similar laws in place or soon to be in place to protect American consumers.

The right to rectification: If a data subject finds out that a company has data on them that's incorrect, they can request that it gets updated.

The GDPR is an effort to transfer more control over personal data, like addresses and phone numbers, from large companies back to individuals, affecting how companies obtain, use, store and secure data.
