What is GDPR?
General Data Privacy Regulation, or GDPR, takes effect on May 25, 2018. The legislation will have a big impact on the way marketers approach their work and the way organizations obtain, store, manage or process the personal data of EU citizens. Even though NiHao Cloud stores its user data outside of the EU, the new law still applies to us, and thus our services comply with GDPR regulations.
How we keep your data safe
