The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25 May 2018 and brought forward the most significant changes to data protection law across the European Union. Based on privacy by design and taking a risk-based approach, the GDPR has been designed to meet the requirements of the digital age.
EPTDA is committed to ensuring the security and protection of the personal information that we process, and to provide a compliant and consistent approach to data protection. The association has always had a robust and effective data protection program in place, which complies with existing law and abides by the data protection principles.
However, it was recognized as a mandatory obligation in updating and expanding this program to meet the demands of the GDPR and European legislation.
