Our Commitment to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) designed to synchronize data privacy laws & regulations across Europe effectively replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC. It remodels the way enterprises & companies throughout the geography treat data privacy, while empowering all EU citizens to protect the privacy of their data.
Effective from 25th May 2018, the EU has put in place the GDPR for all EU residents to protect their fundamental right to privacy. In spite of its stringent nature, the law in itself is an essential aspect that the EU has enforced to regulate how the personal data of citizens & visitors is collected, processed & stored in a legally acceptable manner. The law applies to all enterprises in the EU or interacting with the EU or providing products & services to EU residents who collect & process personal data. In effect, this law gives the control back to EU citizens on how their personal data can be utilized.
“ At Multidots we believe in engaging customers based on a relationship built on honesty, trust, transparency and dependability. Multidots is committed to comply with the applicable GDPR regulations from 25th May 2018.
