General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

What you need to know, and how Intermedia can help you comply with the GDPR’s requirements

Effective May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European privacy law that imposes significant new requirements on any company or entity that handles, stores, collects, processes, uses or analyzes any personal data of individuals located in the European Union (EU). It gives these individuals greater control over the data that companies have about them, and it creates heightened security, disclosure, access and notification obligations on any business that uses personal data of individuals located in the EU.

Intermedia has extensive expertise managing a highly secure infrastructure and complying with complex regulations. Intermedia maintains a security environment that meets the requirements of the GDPR, and we offer GDPR-compliant Data Processing Addendums (DPAs) to our partners and customers to help assure them that our processing and handling of their data will meet the GDPR’s standards. Ultimately, every business needs to carefully assess their own business activities and their compliance with the GDPR, but we can help by managing GDPR compliance on the services we provide.

GDPR compliance requires a very detailed and business-specific analysis. Intermedia provides GDPR-related assurances regarding the services we provide. Most companies that, directly or indirectly, have contacts or dealings with the EU are working with outside legal and compliance advisors to help them understand how the law applies to their own business and what they need to do to comply.  Intermedia strongly recommends that, if you have any questions regarding GDPR compliance for your own business, you seek the advice of your legal advisors.
