The 25 May 2018 General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) compliance deadline is less than a month away and BulkSMS has been busy getting ready. GDPR legislation specifically relates to our clients in EU member states, but it is also applicable for any client sending SMS messages to recipients within EU member states. Due to this, GDPR may well be seen as a new global privacy regime for processing personal data. We expect more and more countries to align their data protection laws in accordance with the EU’s lead with GDPR.
We are putting the final touches to our GDPR compliance preparedness. Our readiness process has taken into account how BulkSMS acts as both a data controller in relation to our clients and a data processor in providing an A2P SMS messaging platform to enable our clients to send communications to intended message recipients.
For more information about BulkSMS’s compliance with GDPR, please contact our Data Protection Officer, Dr Pieter Streicher: Managing Director at BulkSMS.com on firstname.lastname@example.org or contact our offices.
