The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is an important piece of legislation that is designed to strengthen and unify data protection laws for all individuals within the European Union. The regulation will become effective and enforceable on the 25th May 2018.
Qelp is fully committed to achieving compliance with the GDPR prior to the regulation’s effective date.
What is Qelp doing about the GDPR?
