The GDPR is a comprehensive data protection law that came into effect on May 25, 2018. It replaced existing EU law to strengthen the protection of “personal data” and the rights of the individual. It’s a single set of rules which governs the processing and monitoring of EU data.
Does it affect me?
Yes, most likely. If you hold or process the data of any person in the EU, the GDPR will apply to you, whether you’re based in the EU or not.
How Linko is prepared for GDPR
Our teams worked hard to ensure we complied with GDPR. This was a massive overhaul of processes and data models to make sure we met our legal obligations, and did the best thing for our customers while still letting us move fast, scale and build great products.
Here are the main things we did:
We built new features
Our teams built new features to enable our customers to easily meet their GDPR obligations.
Linko helps you meet your data portability requirements; you can easily export all of your data linked to an individual and permanently delete all data linked to an individual user. This is available for customers on their profile settings.
We coordinated with our vendors
We’ve reviewed all our vendors, found out about their GDPR position and signed Data Processing Agreements with them.
