1. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”)
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union privacy regulation platform scheduled to go into effect on May, 25 2018. The EU’s GDPR initiative was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all European citizens’ data privacy, and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.
Petros Law Group understands that, despite being a European Union regulation, the GDPR has far-reaching implications for any business that has a global presence; thus impacting any business, whether or not said business operates within, or outside of, any nation belonging to the European Union. So long as any EU user or customer resides or conducts business within the EU, Bitcoin Private fully intends to be in compliance with these newly implemented GDPR standards.
