GDPR Commitment


GDPR Commitment Statement

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most significant piece of European privacy legislation in the last twenty years. It replaces the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (European Directive 95/46/EC), strengthening the rights that EU individuals have over their data, and creating a uniform data protection law across Europe.

GDPR is a globally relevant regulation applicable to any organization that has EU area customers or even stores EU citizens’ data. GDPR has taken effect from May 25, 2018.
