General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation that requires businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states.
All companies working within the EU will need to comply with the new rules in order to protect customer data by May 25, 2018.
GDPR leaves much to interpretation. It says that companies must provide a “reasonable” level of protection for personal data, for example, but does not define what constitutes “reasonable.”
However, GDPR does define a set of rights that all customers have.
Before we go in to those, let us just agree on some definitions.
- User: That is you, the user of Lime Go.
- Customer: A physical person, whose data can be stored and processed in Lime Go.
- Reference: A link to an object in another context. E.g. A link to the person in a history note or a reminder.
- Data processing: Whatever you need to use customer data for. Typically selling your product or service.
