The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, enhances the existing framework for companies that process the personal data of EU-based residents. It comes into effect on May 25, 2018, bringing with it a host of new obligations for those companies, and new privacy rights for their end users.
Processing data can mean many things, from collecting data to storing and using it. Organizations large and small that process the personal data of EU-based individuals are now preparing for the new regulation, and Evernote is no exception.
To help guide our readiness initiatives, Evernote actively collaborates with privacy experts from the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) and the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF). Evernote continues to be EU-US Privacy Shield and Swiss-US Privacy Shield certified.
Being ready for GDPR is important to us and we welcome this opportunity to help our users understand what we’re doing to prepare. For Evernote users interested in learning more about GDPR and how we are adopting these principles, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Evernote Business customers looking for a data protection agreement should contact their customer success agent, or email email@example.com for more information.
