With the new upcoming data protection law in the EU, businesses are scrambling to prepare well before the law comes in force on 25th of May.
The Kommo team is also striving to meet the requirements of the GDPR and ensure that the data of our European customers is handled properly and on a lawful basis.
What is GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)?
This new legislation is unique in it's reach: every business — even those outside of EU — is required to follow the law, if that business is processing and/or controlling the data of EU citizens. Failure to adhere to the new law will result in heavy fines.
The main purpose for introducing the GDPR is to protect individuals against intrusive practices. This includes both the information targeted at the individual and the information collected from them.
In essence, the GDPR guarantees the right of every EU individual to:
know how their information is processed
see that it is correct
be sure that it is modified or deleted on their request
and much more
Protection of the individual data is also emphasized, as security breaches and data leaks are treated much more seriously now.
Overall, the new law will introduce a more transparent environment for the relationship between a customer and a business. You can learn more about GDPR here.
