Ensuring compliance and following the law is essential for any business handling data. One of the most important pieces of recent legislation that any business with customers in the EU, including website visitors, needs to pay attention to is GDPR.
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a set of privacy laws laid out by the European Union, which came into effect in May 2018. The regulation means that any business that markets products and services to people in the EU, whether or not the company is based in the EU, needs to follow certain rules on how to collect, store and handle personal data. The emphasis is on consent and giving individuals control over their own information. GDPR has already and continues to change how businesses across all industries and around the world must approach data. At SGM, we take every step to ensure we meet all the requirements to be compliant with GDPR and other relevant data legislation.
