GDPR is the new European Union General Data Protection Regulation, which will be enforced 25 May 2018.
Because your personal data is important to iXDev and treat it with high security and confidentiality, we continuously work with law enforcement to make your data even more secure.
iXDev is delighted to announce its compliance with the new EU GDPR effective 25 May 2018.
What does this mean?
Many of the companies were taking several measures voluntarily to protect customer data without any law enforcement in place. iXDev was applying UK Data Protection Act 1998 since we started, although starting 25 May 2018 a new European law will be enforced on all companies related to customer data protection and will include all the UK Data Protection Act 1998 terms.
This means that what companies were doing voluntarily in the past becomes an enforced law for all companies to regulate customers data protection including customer personal identification data.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organisations across the region approach data privacy.

The Key Changes:
The aim of the GDPR is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world that is vastly different from the time in which the 1995 directive was established. Although the key principles of data privacy still hold true to the previous directive, many changes have been proposed to the regulatory policies; the key points of the GDPR as well as information on the impacts it will have on business can be found in the link.
