On May 25 2018, the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) went into effect, changing how companies around the world deal with the personal data of people residing in the EU.
At Showpad, we take data security and privacy seriously. With a corporate headquarters in Ghent (Belgium), and North American headquarters in Chicago (US), we will continue to be at the forefront of the latest changes. This gives our customers enough information to be compliant while offering them the flexibility to make changes according to their organizational needs.
Who is impacted?
Even if your company is based outside the EU, GDPR applies to your organization if you are offering services that process personal data of EU residents, or if you are monitoring behaviour of people residing in the EU. So if you have email lists that include EU citizens, you’ll need to be compliant too.
