EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It is a new European law aimed at further securing the protection of personal data. It is a single set of rules directly enforceable as of 25 May 2018 in all EU Member States. The GDPR regulates the processing of personal data of EU individuals, providing them with more privacy rights and placing more significant obligations on companies and organisations regardless of where they are located.

What the Akvo Foundation is doing

At Akvo, we are committed to protecting our partners’ data. For the past few months, a dedicated team within Akvo have been working on GDPR compliance. Our goal is to be GDPR compliant by 25 May 2018.

We will present updates on our Akvo blog.
