Organisations established in the EU and processing personal data of EU-based individuals will, in almost all cases, be required to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came into force on May 25, 2018. The GDPR updates and harmonises the framework for processing personal data in the European Union, and brings with it new obligations for organisations and new rights for individuals.
The team at ESG is fully committed to complying with the requirements of the GDPR. We have taken GDPR requirements to heart and made changes to our policies to ensure that we are fully in compliance with the GDPR.
