The new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect on May 25, 2018. DigitalOcean can assure their customers that all DigitalOcean services will be in full compliance with GDPR by this date.
DigitalOcean want to keep you informed and prepared so you and your teams can focus on what matters: spending more time building great software. Not only is GDPR an important step in protecting the fundamental right to privacy for European citizens, it also raises the bar for data protection, security, and compliance in the industry.
To help you understand what this means for you, and the steps we have taken to ensure the protection of personal data, DigitalOcean has created a new GDPR section on website. In this section, you can find:
- An FAQ document to help you understand GDPR and how it affects you as a DigitalOcean customer
- The DigitalOcean Data Processing Agreement (DPA), which enables you to comply with your GDPR obligations
