UBI Global complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

For us at UBI Global it has always been essential to handle our members’ personal information in a safe and transparent way. Consequently, we welcome the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). To meet the new requirements, we updated our privacy policy and terms and conditions.

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a Data Protection Regulation that takes effect throughout the EU on May 25, 2018. It replaces the 1995 Data Protection Directive and all national privacy and security laws that previously existed within the EU with a single, comprehensive EU-wide law that governs the use, sharing, transfer and processing of any personal data that originates from the EU. Based on the Data Protection Directive, the GDPR strengthens existing laws in certain respects, including breach notification, has higher fines for non-compliance and data loss, and provides for greater individual control on how personal data is handled.

What does this mean to me as a member of the UBI Global Network?

GDPR does not affect your membership or any services you receive from UBI Global. However, you are given greater control over the personal information you provide. All your rights and other information relating to your personal information can be found in our Privacy Policy. The new Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy go into effect on May 25, 2018. Your use of our services from that day on is subject to the updated Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy.

Do I have to do anything?

For now, you do not have to do anything. But if you wish, please read our new Privacy Policy and the updated Terms and Conditions that will take effect on May 25, 2018. Our policy is to respect all laws that apply to our business and this includes GDPR. Rest assured that we will continue to protect your privacy.

 

Happy GDPR Day!
UBI Global Operations Team
