What is the GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to all companies handling the personal data of Europeans, and brought the most significant changes to data protection laws in more than two decades. It introduced strict rules on how companies collect, hold and transmit and use personal data.

The GDPR aims to meet the requirements of the digital age, and give the control of personal data back to individuals. Read more in our Privacy Policy about how we work with ensuring GDPR-compliance. 

What does the GDPR mean for me?

In short, the GDPR means that you:

  • Have the right to obtain more detailed information about how we process your personal data. This information is provided in our Privacy Policy.
  • Have enforced rights as a data subject, like the right to erasure, objection or correction.
