What it is, what we are doing, and what you can do
The GDPR became enforceable on May 25, 2018, and increased oversight for global privacy rights and compliance. We, at PandaDoc, have embraced GDPR requirements and this guide is intended to help our customers understand PandaDoc’s GDPR posture. It is not intended as a thorough treatise on GDPR application and should be read with this in mind.
What is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”) is a European data protection and privacy law adopted April 14, 2016, which became officially enforceable beginning on May 25, 2018. The two (2) year delay between adoption and enforcement was intended to give organizations time to prepare before enforcement.
The GDPR is an ambitious attempt to strengthen, harmonize, and modernize EU data protection law and enhance individual rights and freedoms, consistent with the European understanding of privacy as a fundamental human right. The GDPR regulates, among other things, how individuals and organizations may obtain, use, store, and erase personal data. It replaced a prior European Union privacy directive known as Directive 95/46/EC (the “Directive”), which had been the basis of European data protection law from 1995 to early 2018. Unlike its predecessor, the GDPR applies immediately throughout the European Union (“EU”) across all member states without the need for further member state legislative action.
Since mid-May 2018, the GDPR has been in force and there is no further “grace period.” It is important that organizations impacted by the GDPR are now compliant with its provisions.
