GDPR Commitment
Version: July 2020
Commitment Statement
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive European Union data privacy law designed to strengthen and unify data protection laws for all residents of the EU. GDPR came into effect on May 25, 2018.
Why Is GDPR Important?

GDPR adds some new requirements regarding how companies should protect individuals' data that they process. It also raises the stakes for compliance by increasing enforcement and imposing greater fines for breach. We are following the developments about GDPR and are taking steps to prepare for compliance.

Escalate is fully committed to being compliant with GDPR by the regulations effective date.
