What is the GDPR?
The EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”) is a new privacy regulation with comprehensive privacy and security requirements intended to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union (“EU”).
The GDPR was adopted by the European Parliament in April 2016 and will become effective on May 25, 2018, replacing the current EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and national data protection laws in the EU based on the Directive.
How the GDPR will impact Sitmobile’s service offerings
Sitmobile welcomes the positive changes the GDPR is expected to bring by providing a consistent and unified data protection regime for companies across Europe and elsewhere.
We are committed to helping our customers to address the GDPR’s new requirements that are relevant to our service offerings, including any applicable data processor accountability requirements. Our service offerings already have built-in privacy and security features to put our customers in control and to help build message recipient trust.
