The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive update to existing European Union laws that goes into effect on May 25, 2018.
In summary, the GDPR gives consumers the rights of access, rectification, automated decision making and profiling, as well as the rights to erasure, restrict processing, data portability and object.
The GDPR applies to companies that are based across Europe and global companies that process personal data about individuals in the EU.
We welcome the implementation of GDPR as it is an important step to enabling and empowering individual privacy rights — because ultimately, we are all consumers.
Are there specific changes that will affect me as a Vamos client or web-viewer?
We may seek your consent to receive our marketing newsletters as we look to further reinforce data privacy. Such requests for consent may be found in our updated Terms of Service and in our upcoming communications. Return To Contents
