Macbeth and GDPR – Our Commitment to Data Privacy

 

Macbeth is committed to compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will go into effect May 25, 2018. The regulation contains the most significant changes to European data privacy legislation in the last 20 years. It is designed to give EU citizens more control over their data and seeks to unify a number of existing privacy and security laws under one comprehensive law.

Our customers can trust that we have made GDPR a priority and have devoted significant resources toward our efforts to comply with GDPR.

 

What We Are Doing

Like many other services companies, we are implementing our company-wide GDPR compliance strategy leading up to May 25, 2018 and beyond. We appreciate that our customers have requirements under GDPR that are directly impacted by their use of Macbeth, and we are committed to helping our customers fulfill their requirements under GDPR.

Below are a few examples of initiatives we have committed to in order to satisfy GDPR requirements that apply to both our customers and us:

• Committing to security and privacy measures required under GDPR. We have various security layers. We use Securi Net for our websites and ZOHO CRM for our customer relationship management.
