The GDPR Explained
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a privacy law that mandates standards on companies that store or process the personal data of EU residents.
GDPR enables individuals to provide great transparency into how their data is stored, processed, deleted, and used, and becomes effective on May 25, 2018. It applies to all businesses that hold any information of individuals located within the EU.

- Data portability on demand
- Data destruction
- Data protection by design and by default
We’re also continuing to improve our network monitoring and update our breach procedures per the GDPR guidelines. We’re documenting how all of our data is collected, where it is stored, and how it is used.
