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.
We 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.
We don’t need a government regulation to tell us what we already know about the need to protect your data.
This fundamental human right is the driving vision behind everything we do and something we take very seriously. The GDPR aligns with our mission to protect these rights and creates more awareness for individuals and companies all over the world to come to this same conclusion.
