General Data Protection Regulation at YourTradebase

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union, which comes into effect from 25th May 2018.

What is GDPR?

Essentially, when you collect data on a citizen of the EU, they have the right to know what data you keep, for what purpose, and for how long.

Under GDPR, EU citizens have additional rights, which include: the right to access, the right to be forgotten, the right to data portability and the right to be notified of any data breaches.

YourTradebase will be fully compliant with GDPR by the 25th May 2018.

Since May 2018 we've updated our Terms of Use with a new data protection addendum and updated our Privacy Policy.
