Whether you’re B2B or B2C, big or small, you’ve probably heard about the EU’s new regulation, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It’s a new set of laws aimed at enhancing the protection of EU citizens’ personal data and increasing the obligations of organizations to deal with that data in transparent and secure ways. The GDPR applies not only to EU-based businesses, but also to any business that controls or processes data of EU citizens.
At HubSpot, our entire organization is hard at work ensuring that our own practices are GDPR-compliant. But equally important to us is helping you, our partners and customers, understand what the GDPR means for your businesses and build compliant processes of your own.
A big piece of that is ensuring that the HubSpot platform sets you up for GDPR compliance. In full transparency, while the existing product can be used in a way that helps to comply with the GDPR, doing so can be difficult and involve complex workarounds.
Between now and May 25th (and beyond), we are fully committed to enhancing the HubSpot platform to enable easier compliance with the GDPR.
