Many of you have been hard at work on figuring out what the heck to do about GDPR. As you know, on May 25th the European Union and U.K. are launching a data-privacy initiative that will affect how we all deal with personal data.
ePublishing is announcing a series of steps we are taking to support your GDPR needs.
First and foremost, we are in the process of becoming certified by Privacy Shield. Privacy Shield is “a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States.”
Initiated by the United States and Switzerland, Privacy Shield has been adopted by the EU as a standard which meets GDPR requirements. So rest assured, when you work with ePublishing, you will be working with a certified provider in compliance with the required standards.
We have included a list of features ePublishing will provide* to make your own compliance with GDPR easier but first we need to cover some basics.
Here is an overview of what you need to consider regarding GDPR. As you know, we are not international lawyers. We're not even domestic lawyers. Heck, we aren't even closet lawyers, so please do whatever research you feel is needed to comply with GDPR.
