GDPR 2018-08-15T13:47:31+00:00


The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the biggest change to e-commerce law in decades.  It was developed to standardize data protection laws in the EU and give EU residents more control over their personal data. The GDPR, adopted by the European Parliament in April of 2016, went into force on May 25th of this year. Accordingly, businesses must now be in compliance or face the possibility of serious fines.

A company in the United States must comply with the law if it collects data of EU residents, regardless of whether the company has a physical presence in the EU.  The law applies to all businesses, including those in the adult industry.

  • Appointment of a data security officer
