Data protection is more important than ever. With the world living and working through the web, safeguarding an individual’s information from compromise or fraud must be a top priority for companies and websites. The more data that is created and stored for longer periods of time, the higher the risk of corruption of that data.
In compliance with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which goes into effect May 25, 2018, we are changing how transparent we are about the information we collect and what we use it for. The GDPR was developed with the idea of giving people more control over their personal data and enforcing data protection regulations for companies to make sure their data collection, processing and storage is secure. The goal is to work toward a fundamental change in the way we think about data, with the primary objective being ‘privacy by default.’
We’ve improved the way we describe our practices and how we explain the options you have to update, manage, export, and delete your data. This is all in an effort to give you more control over your personal data. If you would like to learn more about our practices regarding data privacy and to see these changes, click here.
With cyberattacks and data leaks becoming commonplace in the news, data privacy and security must be updated from outdated regulations to keep up with ever advancing technology. These new regulations provide increased security measures to help you keep your information safe.
