General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect on May 25, 2018. This regulation changes how companies use and process the personal data of European users. For an introduction to the GDPR, see the GDPR overview.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires Marketplaces Inc to make the following changes to its platform and internal privacy program:
- It requires Marketplaces Inc to re-organise our privacy team, and to document and keep records of certain privacy-related decisions made by us so that we are accountable for our privacy practices.
- It requires Marketplaces Inc to make sure that we and our vendors are able to honor the rights of European merchants and customers over their personal data.
- It requires Marketplaces Inc to make certain contractual commitments to our vendors, and requires us to get certain contractual commitments when we use a third-party sub-processor to provide our service.
