On May 25, 2018, all the EU Members states have implemented a new data privacy and protection related regulation, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR reinforces existing data protection rights of individuals in the EU, adds new ones and introduces a new “accountability” based regulatory regime.
At CELOXIS, we take compliances very seriously. For GDPR, we are working diligently to ensure that we are compliant with the rules laid out by the law and provide product functionality that enables our customers to remain compliant. In the following sections, we have outlined our approach to comply with the regulations outlined in the law.
