A new standard of data protection called GDPR has taken effect across the EU (as of May 25, 2018). It places several new obligations on companies handling or tracking personal data.
We have fulfilled our obligations in preparing for this new law. This page is our hub for GDPR at Marvel, containing the latest news, plans and resources for ourselves and our customers.
What is GDPR?
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and is a new comprehensive data protection law in the EU that replaces existing laws to strengthen the protection of personal data and the rights of the individual. It is a single set of rules, directly enforceable in each EU member state.
How we've prepared for GDPR at Marvel
We're committed to meeting our legal obligation and helping our customers become compliant. We've made some key policy, product and term updates, including:
- Our internal security and NOC team have spent the last year evaluating our internal data processing procedures and getting ready for GDPR. This means all of our customer's personal data is in good hands.
- We're making product changes that allow our users to manage their data in a private, safe and secure way.
- Marvel is an EU based company. This means all of our EU customer data is stored within our servers in the EU and will not be transferred outside of the EU without our customer's consent.
- All of our internal teams have undergone training and auditing to ensure that we are complying and handling all of our customer data within the requirements of GDPR
