GDPR, General Data Protection Regulation, is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union. It comes into effect on May 25, 2018. It replaces the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive enacted in UK law as the Data Protection Act 1998 with which realsmart are fully compliant.
We understand that GDPR compliance is a shared responsibility. At realsmart we believe in high standards of information security, privacy and transparency. When enforcement begins on May 25, 2018 realsmart are committed to compliance with the GDPR across all versions of our suite of products. We are currently working on the changes that are necessary across the business. We'll make important updates to contractual commitments that directly address GDPR requirements.
Further updates on our progress will be regularly communicated.
