From the start, I have taken significant measures to protect your personal data on my site and within my company processes. Below illustrates how I am fulfilling the GDPR requirements and embracing the individual rights as described under the GDPR. I believe there are no boundaries to these basic human rights. That’s why I am applying these measures to all of my users, not just EU residents.
What is the General Data Protection Regulation ?
The GDPR is a comprehensive EU data privacy law that went into effect on May 25, 2018 and states that everyone has a right to protection of their personal data. This applies not only to EU companies, but to all companies who process data for EU residents.
I believe every person has a fundamental right to fully own and control their own data
In today’s internet age, behemoths like Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn profit from people’s personal data and are heavily incentivised to prevent individuals from controlling, transferring or removing any of the data they freely provide on these websites. Although recent events have raised significant awareness about these issues, there is still a long way to go to put the power back into the hands of individuals.
I don’t need a government regulation to tell me what I already know about the need to protect your data
This fundamental human right is the driving vision behind everything I do and something I take very seriously. The GDPR aligns with my mission to protect these rights and creates more awareness for individuals and companies all over the world to come to this same conclusion.
