Protecting your data in the wake of GDPR

Protecting your data in the wake of GDPR

With the recent enactment of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from the European Union, companies are making changes to improve how they collect and also how they communicate the collection and use of personal data on their customers. The GDPR applies to any business that may collect, process, manage or store information on a European Union citizen.  

Data that is considered ‘personal data’ includes a person’s name and any other information collected (both online and in the real world) that can be used to identify them. This would also apply to the information contained in a wireless carrier bill and associated reporting tools. Coincidentally, the GDPR is part of the reason Facebook and other large companies are asking all their users to review their privacy settings recently. The GDPR took effect May 25, 2018 and will bring about the greatest change to European data security in the last 20 years. It includes stiff fines for businesses that violate the new ruling in regards to collection and use of customer data from consumers in the EU.

We are pleased to announce that we have taken the necessary measures to protect the information we collect and store through our new and enhanced reporting tools we plan to roll out over the next few months. This new solution and tool complies with all privacy requirements of the GDPR while providing our customers with all the important wireless metrics and insights as before.
