Adster GDPR Update & Compliance
As you probably know, from so many emails which you likely received from your service providers (and from our team!), GDPR came into effect on Friday, May 25th.
GDPR is the “EU General Data Protection Regulation”. The GDPR’s purpose is to unify data privacy requirements across all member states of the European Union (EU) and at its core, it is a regulation that gives EU residents more control over how their personal data is used.
The GDPR not only applies to organizations located within the EU but also applies to organizations located outside of the EU, if they offer goods or services to, or monitor the behavior of, EU data subjects. It applies to all companies processing and holding the personal data of data subjects residing in the European Union, regardless of the company’s location.
GDPR refers to ‘Personal Data’, or any data related to an identified or identifiable person. This can include:
- Personal information (name, email address, phone number, etc.)
- Online activity (IP address, pictures/posts on social media, cookies)
- Important records (medical information, bank details)
