Doing business in or with the EU

This legislation aims to protect the personal data of your users, including your customers and staff. It pays to takes this seriously, because if you are operating in Europe and are found to be in violation of this regulation, your organization will face stiff fines.

The GDPR identifies four main pillars in its quest to protect user data:

    Protection: you must have solid security in place
  • icon
    Transparency: know where data is stored and how each element is being used, and communicate this clearly
  • icon
    Minimization: minimize the use of personal data in serving consumers
  • icon
    Free movement: proper API's to allow users to transfer their data to other companies

Privacy: a world of opportunities

While complying with data privacy regulations may seem like a drag, it also offers new opportunities. For example, introducing transparency and free movement will create a more equitable relationship with your customers. If handled well, with a smooth customer experience and the right tone of voice, this can bring you closer and increase customer loyalty.
