With the promulgation of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that came into effect on May 25, 2018, we have taken the opportunity to include improvements that address the new standards introduced by this European data protection law.
GDPR is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union, and for export of personal data outside the EU.
The improvements mainly include added transparency to our customers on our processes related to lawful and fair collection, processing, use, retention and deletion of Personal Data.
The following sections provide more details.
