On May 25, 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR) enters into force in the EU.
In short, we will let you know what it requires you to do with us in advance.
The following is the full article about the GDPR.
[What is the GDPR?]
- The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the EU regulation on data protection and privacy that covers all individuals in the European Union. The GDPR aims primarily to give individuals control over their personal data and simplify the regulatory environment for businesses by unifying the laws within the EU. The GDPR does not require national governments to pass any enabling legislation and, therefore, it is directly binding and applicable.
As a natural person, whose data is processed, you are considered as the “data subject” under the GDPR. Though the whole document is worth reading (HERE), we think that the most important for is its Chapter 3 “Rights of the data subject”, which lists your rights and explains how you can exercise them. E.g., it describes that you have the right to get transparent information about how your data is used, get access to a copy of your data, request correction and deletion of your personal data.
If you are playing from outside of the EU, then besides the GDPR, we also respect the rights granted to you with regard to your personal data under the applicable laws. At the same time, we also provide you with the rights that the GDPR stipulates. It is your choice to which extent you want to exercise them, and the rights do not create any additional obligations for you.
Thank you for reading.
