What is GDPR?
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a regulation by which the three primary institutions of the European Union (EU Parliament, EU Council and European Commission) intend to strengthen the protection of personal data within the EU's boarders. This regulation also addresses the export of this data outside the EU. It will become effective on May 25th, 2018.
Who is affected by GDPR?
All entities that collect or process data of EU citizens should comply with GDPR. This includes both EU entities, but also non-EU entities (ie: companies from USA, China, etc).
Impact of GDPR for 123FormBuilder customers
The responsibility of GDPR compliance is shared between 123FormBuilder (the "Data Processor", in GDPR terminology) and the 123FormBuilder Customers (the "Data Controllers", in GDPR terminology). Each of them has specific obligations, in order the assure the maximum protection possible for the data collected using 123FormBuilder forms. The people that fill the forms (the "Data Subjects") have specific new rights, which have to be respected both by the Data Processor and the Data Controller.
