What is the GDPR Legislation?
Taking effect on 25th May 2018, the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is very similar to the DPA (Data Protection Act). GDPR applies to any business that processes the personal data of EU citizens. This includes customer, supplier, partner and employee personal data. In Lehmann’s terms: companies are now required to be more transparent, clear and organised in the way that they collect, store and use certain data.
Gifty™ & GDPR
Gifty™ isn’t a massive corporation, and we aren’t in the data collection or processing business (we only actually care about gifts!), so this change won’t affect us massively. However, we’d like to take the opportunity to re-iterate ourselves on a few things:
Gifty™ and THEGIFTYSTORE LTD. are GDPR Compliant in every way we can.
We’ve never been unclear about when and what data we use, store and collect.
We only store “minimal” and “simple” data – Names, Address, E-mails.
We won’t mislead you into giving us more information than we need.
We won’t keep details any longer than we need to.
You can delete your account at any time. You can notify us at any time to remove and delete your details permanently.
We don’t give away any of your information to anyone else. Simple!
