The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), effective on May 25th, 2018. The GDPR builds upon and modernizes existing EU Data Protection and Privacy rules and will replace them with one single set of rules which govern how personal information is collected and processed. It also specifically addresses the export of personal data of EU citizens outside the EU, and sets clear guidelines for companies who operate between the EU and other global markets with different legal structures and approaches to data transfer and its commercial use.

These Terms apply to all of your agreements (“Agreements”) with Dovetale, Inc., Dovetale, Inc., and their affiliates and/or subsidiaries (“Dovetale”) to the extent that Dovetale processes as your processor any personal data originating from the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom and Switzerland (“Your Data”).
