GDPR is the General Data Protection Regulation: a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. GDPR came into effect on May-25-2018. GDPR requires any organization holding any form of personal data relating to any EU citizen to meet certain obligations relating to the use and access of that data.

The introduction of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (otherwise known as GDPR) is one of the biggest regulatory changes in data privacy laws in the last 20 years. The GDPR aims to harmonize data privacy laws across the EU and strengthen the security and protection of the personal data of all EU residents. This is a good thing for EU residents and something new to navigate for businesses.

GDPR was approved by the EU parliament on April 14, 2016, and becomes fully enforceable on May-25-2018. For businesses that aren’t GDPR compliant by that date, there can be some pretty hefty fines. Companies may be fined up to €20 million or four percent of global annual revenue.



GDPR makes a key distinction between these two roles in the management and processing of personal data:

To understand GDPR better one needs to understand two aspects, Data controllers and Data processors.

The Data Controller owns the relationship with the Data Subject and is ultimately responsible for making and policing decisions around how and why that data is processed. In most cases, if you are a Datawrkz customer the Data Controller in this context is you.

The Data Processor is any organization that handles and processes data on behalf of, and with regard to instructions from, the Data Controller. In most cases, Datawrkz is one of your Data Processors.

Each role has its own responsibilities, but it’s important to understand that in most cases the Data Controller has legal liability under GDPR. However, as the Data Processor, we at Datawrkz want to make sure your job is as easy as it possibly can be when it comes to being (and staying) compliant.


At Datawrkz, we believe in “security by design,” meaning that we have built security into the core of our product and have made it a key focus area since day one. With regard to GDPR, the following should be noted:
