We are committed to partnering with all Users to help them understand the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). The GDPR is the most comprehensive EU data privacy law in decades, and will come into effect on May 25, 2018.
As well as strengthening and unifying user data privacy across the EU, it also puts new or additional obligations upon anyone that handles EU citizens’ personal data, regardless of where they are located.
The GDPR’s updated requirements are significant and our team is working hard to bring our service offerings and contractual commitments in line. Measures to achieve this include:
Changes in our product itself. We are changing our user interfaces and service offerings in order to give users more control over the data they submit to / via Eyeblink or Sites.
We’ll also continue to monitor the guidance around GDPR compliance from privacy-related regulatory bodies, and will adjust our plans accordingly if it changes.
Fulfilling our privacy and data security commitments is important to us. This page will be revised to reflect GDPR-related information as it becomes available. If you have any questions, we hope you will reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
