General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

This page is specifically about the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
For more general privacy information, see our privacy policy.

Cloud Ctrl's GDPR compliance

The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) approved and adopted by the EU Parliament in April 2016 aims primarily to give control back to EU citizens and residents over their personal data, and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

As the GDPR came into effect on the 25th of May 2018, all companies processing and storing the personal data of subjects residing in the EU must comply with it, regardless of their location.
