Coosto and GDPR: 1 year later

On May 25th 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in the entire European Union. This legislation ensures all countries in the European Union apply the same extensive privacy regulations. The GDPR affects all organizations and brands, including Coosto. That is why we put a lot of effort in making sure the privacy of Coosto users and their customers are protected under the new law as well. One year later we are looking back at the steps taken. 

Maintaining privacy
Well before the GDPR came into force, we have informed our clients about the impact of the new law. As part of our preparations, every client has received a GDPR information kit, including interactive webinars and an informative guidebook. Since then our dedicated privacy team has been the point of contact within Coosto for all GDPR related questions clients might have. This team yearly checks and verifies what we agreed upon with our clients, in terms of the GDPR. 

Data management feature
We have enriched Coosto for our customers with the Data management feature, which was specially developed for GDPR. This feature enables Coosto users to independently comply with requests for access, deletion, limitation or transfer of their own and customers’ personal data from within the tool. 

Privacy is a high priority for Coosto. We are happy that we were able to help our clients in complying with GDPR in time. But it does not end there. We are closely following and supporting developments in this domain, and we will continue our efforts to protect the privacy of Coosto users and their customers.
