Welcoming GDPR at Marvel

Posted 2 months ago by Naomi Francis

In the coming months, businesses and organisations across the globe which handle business with EU residents are preparing for the arrival of a new law. On May 25, 2018, the new standard of data protection called GDPR will take effect and place several new obligations on companies handling or tracking personal data.

At Marvel, we’re committed to fulfilling our obligations and ensuring that our customers understand and prepare for the new law. To keep everyone up to date and our methods transparent, we’ve created this page. Think of it as our GDPR hub, containing the latest news, plans and resources for ourselves and our customers – but here’s an overview to get started.

First things first, what is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and is a new comprehensive data protection law in the EU that replaces existing laws to strengthen the protection of personal data and the rights of the individual. It will be a single set of rules, directly enforceable in each EU member state.

Co-op Digital have broken down the new law’s terms into digestible posters which really help individuals to understand what GDPR means for them. Things like:
