In May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the existing 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (European Directive 95/46/EC).
Sales & Marketing currently complies with applicable data protection regulations and is committed to GDPR compliance across its relevant services when the GDPR takes effect May 25, 2018. Sales & Marketing‘s ongoing compliance efforts include:
Sales & Marketing is reviewing where and how our relevant services collect, use, store and dispose of personal data and updating policies, standards, governance and documentation as needed.
Working in conjunction with our partners and customers, Sales & Marketing is reviewing our contractual commitments and updating as needed to directly address GDPR requirements. Sales & Marketing is also reviewing its supplier contracts to ensure GDPR compliance throughout its publishing chain.
CROSS-BORDER DATA TRANSFER
Sales & Marketing is committed to meet the requirements to legally transfer data from the EU to the rest of the world under applicable laws where required.
TRAINING AND AWARENESS
Sales & Marketing supports data privacy and security training. Sales & Marketing will supplement existing training modules with GDPR-specific content. In addition to these training requirements, Sales & Marketing conducts ongoing awareness initiatives on a variety of topics, including data protection, security and privacy.
TRAINING Magazine Partners and Customers
Compliance with the GDPR requires a partnership between Sales & Marketing and our partners and customers in their use of applicable Sales & Marketing services. In this context, Sales & Marketing generally will act as a data processor and our partners and customers generally will act as data controllers. Working together, we hope to explore opportunities within our relevant service offerings to assist our partners and customers meet their GDPR obligations. In the meantime, Sales & Marketing encourages partners and customers to independently familiarize themselves with the GDPR.
