General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Getting ready for the GDPR
Organizations established in the European Union (EU) and processing personal data of EU-based individuals will, in almost all cases, be required to comply with the GDPR by May 25, 2018. The GDPR updates and harmonizes the framework for processing personal data in the European Union, and brings with it new obligations for organizations and new rights for individuals. Many organizations, large and small, are now preparing for the new regulation.

Our Commitment
Growlabs believes that the GDPR is an important step toward strengthening data protection laws across the European Union and enabling individual privacy rights. This why Growlabs is committed to taking action towards becoming GDPR-compliant across our cloud services.

Your responsibility
Compliance is a shared responsibility with our customers. Requirements such as greater data access and erasure rules, privacy by design, and data breach notification processes may mean changes for your organization, and are a shared responsibility between yourself and your partners. Therefore, it is important to understand your obligations related to the GDPR regardless of where your organization resides. We suggest that you consult your legal team to review the requirements.
