What is the GDPR?
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is an important piece of legislation that is designed to strengthen and unify data protection laws for all individuals within the European Union. The regulation has become effective and enforceable on the 25th May 2018.
At Ummah Technologies Limited, protecting our user’s data is a core priority and we are doing everything we can to ensure we are GDPR compliant.
What are we doing at Ummah.io?
As part of our commitment to our users, we have built up a broad guide sketching out the majority of activities that will be completed before May 25 to become GDPR compliant. We have a committed group in-house and are frequently consulting with our legal counselors to guarantee client information is secured to the best of our capacity.
We have laid out our guide to becoming GDPR compliant, and will update this with where we’re at in each step as we move through the process.
