1. What is the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR?
GDPR stands for the General Data Protection Regulation. The GDPR is a new European Union (“EU”) law that regulates the personal data of individuals in the EU. The GDPR harmonizes data privacy and security rules across Europe and introduces changes that require companies to update their privacy and security policies and practices.
2. Does the GDPR cover Jebbit’s data?
Jebbit has evaluated its services, and some of them are likely subject to the GDPR. The GDPR applies to the personal data of individuals in the EU, which is defined as any type of information that identifies or can be linked to an individual. In addition to the usual types of personal data (i.e., name, address, phone number, email), this definition can also include information such as online identifiers and any data tied to those identifiers.
3. What efforts has Jebbit taken to prepare for the GDPR?
We have made preparing for the GDPR a priority, and have reviewed and adjusted specific practices in ways intended to meet relevant GDPR requirements. For much of the data we process, we serve as a service provider (known as a “processor” under the GDPR) and we abide by the contractual commitments we have with our customers in this capacity.
4. What are Jebbit’s customers’ responsibilities under the GDPR?
Our brand, publisher, and agency customers with EU end users who offer goods or services in the EU may be required to comply with the regulation. If they fall under the Regulation, these customers must have a lawful basis for processing data, have in place measures to carry out EU data subjects’ rights requests, and provide adequate data security, among other requirements. Unfortunately, we cannot advise you as to whether you need to comply with the GDPR.
5. Will Jebbit’s services change for the GDPR?
Our services will not fundamentally change due to the GDPR. However, we continuously look to improve our services and, as we make updates to our services as offered in the EU, we will do so with GDPR in mind.
