Clockwork's GDPR Compliance
Our Commitment to You and the Protection of Your Data
We are committed to partnering with Clockwork customers and users to help them understand the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR is the most comprehensive EU data privacy law in decades, which went into effect on May 25, 2018.
Besides strengthening and standardizing user data privacy across the EU nations, it requires new or additional obligations on all organizations that handle EU citizens’ personal data, regardless of where the organizations themselves are located. On this page, we’ll explain our methods and plans we used to achieve GDPR compliance, both for ourselves and for our customers.
