Is your ecommerce platform committed to GDPR compliance?
FastSpring is compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation.
The GDPR + Your Business
In May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect. The GDPR is a European regulation that establishes a new framework for handling and protecting the personal data of EU-based residents. It applies to all companies processing and holding the personal data of data subjects residing in the European Union, regardless of the company’s location.
What does the GDPR do?
This regulation enhances the data privacy protections for European Union citizens and is a mandatory requirement for any company with access to personal data of EU citizens. If your company is conducting business with EU residents, your ecommerce platform must be GDPR compliant.
What are the goals of the GDPR?
One of the aims of the GDPR is to harmonize and bring data privacy laws across Europe up to speed with the rapid technological change of the past two decades. It builds upon the current legal framework in the European Union, including the EU Data Protection Directive in existence since 1995.
Who does the GDPR affect?
GDPR compliance is different for every company and depends on, among other factors, company size, the types and amount of data it processes, and its current security and privacy measures. The GDPR will apply not only to organizations located within the EU, but also to organizations located outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to, or monitor the behavior of, EU data subjects.
