GDPR and Personal Data
The rules in the European Union for how the personal data of individuals may be collected, stored and used changed on 25th May 2018, when the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect.
These rules apply to all companies, wherever they are based, that process personal data about citizens in the EU and other countries in the EEA. The regulation will also continue to apply in the UK after it leaves the EU.
At Special iApps we are fully committed to complying with the new rules, and to protecting the rights of all people who give us their data, wherever in the world they may be.
