The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) enforcement goes into effect May 25, 2018. We at PocApp Studios are committed to protecting user privacy and complying with the legal requirements of all regions that our apps are available.
What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a European Union regulation law on data protection and privacy for all individuals that reside within the European Union. The GDPR also applies to how data is handled and controlled (more on that later) outside the EU when applicable.
Fundamentally, the GDPR is a new set of rules designed to give EU citizens more control over their personal data. The legislation allows users gain access to and correct information that companies hold on them, including surveys, ad tracking, data collection, cookies, location data, and almost every other piece of a user’s “digital footprint”. It gives users the right to transfer their data to another organization. It requires companies to define how they keep data secure.
Will PocApp Studios be compliant with the GDPR?
Yes. PocApp Studios is committed to meeting all the GDPR requirements globally for all our users by the deadline of May 25th 2018, and we are taking the steps necessary to ensure that PocApp Studios and all our partners are compliant too.
How does GDPR affect PocApp Studios?
PocApp Studios does not collect any user data but our 3rd party partners do collect data through our applications.
Our efforts to become compliant with GDPR have introduced opportunities to clarify our relationships with partners and educate our development team about user data.
