Our Path to GDPR Compliance
Last Updated May 03, 2018
GDPR, or the General Data Protection Regulation, is an EU data protection and privacy law passed in 2016. It protects the personal data of all EU citizens online and regulates the export of that data by international companies. All businesses working with the data of EU citizens must be compliant with the laws by May 25, 2018, and EzTix is on track to meet the deadline.
Keeping personal data safe has been a top priority for EzTix from day one. We want all of our partners to know we’ll be fully GDPR compliant by May 25th, updating everything from policies to products and operations.
Let’s dive into the changes on the way.
Updating our User Policies:
Refining interaction with our products
We’ve further streamlined EzTix’s data architecture to use only the minimum user data necessary to fulfill our responsibilities. Our Privacy Shield certifications will remain in place while enabling data exports and hard deletion. Our website cookies policy will also change to ensure visitor data collection only with explicit consent.
Strengthening our team’s security training
EzTix employee training is ramping up on data management, security, and incident response procedures. We’ll also be conducting comprehensive ongoing security risk assessments because it’s a top priority for us. These programs build on the robust protocols we have in place today to prevent and respond to data breaches and vulnerabilities.
Please visit our plan for GDPR compliance to learn more about the steps we are taking. We will also send you an email when our updated Terms of Service is available on our site. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us directly.
