GDPR Readiness Review

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has just been passed and looks like COPPA isn’t going to be the toughest rule to deal with anymore. The EU is taking it up a notch causing a good bit of alarm for companies that target or attract minors under the age of 16.

Organizations need to become familiar with the provisions of this regulation and start to plan necessary changes by the time the GDPR goes into effect in 2018.

Work with the PRIVO team to understand the GDPR requirements to engage with kids under 15 and your responsibility as a company to be compliant.

The countdown begins. Don’t wait to the last minute. Reach out to us if you are interested in learning more about PRIVO’s GDPR Readiness Review.
