Disclaimer: This article is not a legal advice regarding the GDPR. This article is only meant to provide an overview about the GDPR and about the implications and initiatives at EASI’R in that regard.
For us at EASI’R, data security and protection has the highest priority.
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a European regulation made to strengthen and unify data protection laws for all individuals within the European Union. The GDPR aims to give individuals control over their own personal data.
We at EASI’R welcome this law, and consider it as an essential step regarding the unification of data protection regulations in the EU.
The GDPR will become effective and enforceable on the 25th May 2018.
At EASI’R, we have always taken data protection very seriously and in 2016 were ISO 27001 certified. The GDPR encourages the use of certification schemes like ISO 27001, and in October 2017, we passed the ISO re-certification process.
To ensure compliance with the GDPR, we are following a clear, detailed plan that has been prepared together with lawyers and external consultants, in order to meet the due date in May 2018.
GDPR implications for EASI’R customers
Compliance with the GDPR requires a partnership between EASI’R (Loyalty Factory GmbH) and our customers regarding their use of our services. EASI’R will comply with the GDPR regarding our services to our customers, including contracts, documentation, and product.

Please note that we can not provide an overview of all the changes that we can foresee that might affect you, as a result of using EASI’R.
