The General Data Protection Regulation is a legislation designed to strengthen and unify data protection laws for Web users in the EU. The regulation became effective and enforceable on May 25, 2018.
GoDataFeed has been committed to GDPR compliance since early 2018, shortly after the announcement of these new requirements by the European Union.
Although we don’t store data in Europe, we took a proactive approach to these new regulations because we understand and appreciate the value of our customers’ rights to privacy.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is considered to be the most significant piece of European data protection legislation to be introduced in the European Union (EU) in 20 years and will replace the 1995 Data Protection Directive. The GDPR enhances EU individuals’ privacy rights and places significantly enhanced obligations on handling data.
The GDPR regulates the processing of a data subject’s personal data in the European Union including its collection, storage and transfer or use. The GDPR gives data subjects more rights and control over their data by regulating how you should handle and store any personal data they collect.
The GDPR grants 8 fundamental rights to data subjects. These are:
The provisions of the GDPR apply to any entity that processes personal data of individuals in the European Union (EU), including tracking their online activities, regardless of whether the entity has a physical presence in the EU.
A Data Controller represents the entity that determines the purposes, conditions and means of the processing of personal data. The Data Processor is the entity which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
If you manage customer accounts within your entity’s relationship with GoDataFeed, you are the Data Controller of your customer’s personal data and GoDataFeed is the Data Processor. With respect to your entity’s own data, GoDataFeed is the Data Controller.
