The GDPR was created to better protect EU citizens’ personal data by providing a standardised regulatory framework across all the member countries. The goal of the regulation is to give consumers more clarity on where their data is held, how long it is held, and for what purposes it is being used.
25th May 2018 was the enforcement date of the regulation. Organisations in non-compliance may face serious penalties. It is extremely important that data processes within your organisation are GDPR compliant and that all organisations that process your client data on your behalf understand and fulfil their obligations to the GDPR.
AgeChecked processes EU residents’ personal data and is therefore subject to the GDPR framework.
