If your company collects data on customers, you need to be GDPR compliant by May 25. Even though this is a European privacy law, it affects businesses here in the US. GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) has new, more transparent regulations for how all companies collect and analyze data tied to EU residents.
Your company will be required to provide a clear notice when you’re collecting data, and let your customers know why you’re collecting it, how long you’ll retain it, and your deletion policies. You’ll need to ensure your employees understand the new policies, and that all your vendors are also compliant.
Your customers will now have the right to access their personal data, and correct or remove it from your database. They can also object to your processing their personal data.
