Our commitment to GDPR
The advent of a data-driven era has brought along with it a set of diverse benefits as well as pertinent complexities. With technocrats collecting and converting a myriad of data packets related to their products and services, it is essential to incorporate some concrete policies along with the predefined data administration norms. This is believed to be a prime opportunity for marketers across the globe to empower their brand reliability while delivering outstanding services to their users.
The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25th of May 2018, and is foreseen to revolutionize data transactions across every organization. Moreover, GDPR is also believed to transform the ways companies handle consumer privacy, and to equip users with new rights to access their own data. GDPR gives users the right to object when they come across usage of their personal data, without their consent, for marketing purposes.
