More control over personal data

If you’re like us at VO, your inbox has probably been bombarded lately with emails from every company that has ever gotten hold of your contact details. In the past, it was never very easy to know exactly what information companies had about us. This new law is meant to change that, giving EU residents more control over their personal data. And it applies to any organisation operating within the EU or that does business with EU customers, regardless of where in the world they may be located.

Consent, Access and Erasure

The GDPR makes it clear how companies can get our consent to use our personal information. Companies must also explain how they do this using clear and plain language, which cannot be buried within pages and pages of text. All EU citizens can now request access to see all data gathered by companies. They can also request their data to be deleted or corrected. Failure to comply could result in a fine of up to 20 million euros or 4% of the company’s annual global revenue.

We have made sure VO is 100% compliant with the new law. We look forward to sharing more news with you in the future!
