GDPR, or the General Data Protection Regulation, is coming into effect on May 25th, 2018. It provides EU citizens everywhere a new, standardised, set of rights regarding their personal data both online and offline. It also requires all businesses, even those outside the EU which handle personal data of EU citizens, to meet a unified standard for handling personal data.
We welcome the new GPDR regulations. The principals of transparency, privacy, and the increased data privacy rights will now be applied in a more uniform and fair way.
It is important to note that the new GDPR regulations don't just apply in your web store, they may affect every aspect of your business. We encourage every business to become familiar with the new regulations and how they will impact all business processes.
As a business, ES Tech Group will be GDPR compliant when it comes into effect on May 25th, 2018. We will also fulfil our obligations as a data processor through our Evolution and EvolutionX web stores. As an EvolutionX customer you are the data controller and you are responsible for your business being GDPR compliant when the new regulations come into effect on May 25th.
