Taking the necessary steps to guarantee your data privacy

On 25th May 2018, a European privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), will come into effect.

The General Data Protection Regulation standardises data protection law across all 28 EU countries and imposes strict new rules on controlling and processing personally identifiable information (PII). It also extends the protection of personal data and data protection rights by giving control back to EU residents. GDPR replaces the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive, and it also supersedes the 1998 UK Data Protection Act.

Imposing new rules on companies, government agencies, non-profits, and other organisations that offer goods and services to people in the European Union (EU), or that collect and analyse data tied to EU residents, the GDPR applies no matter where you are located.

Excel in Business has extensive expertise in protecting data, championing privacy, and complying with complex regulations, and currently complies with both current EU legislation. Given that data is the lifeblood of our organisation, we believe that the GDPR is an important step forward for clarifying and enabling individual privacy rights, as we enter an increasingly digitalised age where data is the new currency.

We are entirely committed to GDPR compliance across our hosted and cloud services when enforcement begins on May 25, 2018, and provide GDPR related assurances in our contractual commitments.

In order to comply with GDPR, we have drafted a new privacy policy, which reflects our commitments to your data privacy, and that we encourage you to review.
