Don’t get caught short! GDPR goes into effect on May 25th, 2018, and you need to comply with it even if you are not in the EU! That’s right, organizations in the U.S. and other non-EU countries must also comply with the data handling requirements of GDPR, or risk fines of up to 20,000 EUR (over $24million USD).
Don’t be misled by people telling you that you don’t need to comply, or that the EU will never enforce it against non-EU businesses, because you do, and they will. It’s written right into GDPR.
There are only a handful of attorneys in the U.S. who have the background and expertise in this sort of highly technical, elaborate and complex law; fortunately for you, our CEO is one of them! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to determine whether you are a candidate for our GDPR Legal Compliance consulting services. These also cover what needs to be in contracts that you, as a data controller, have with third-parties such as the email marketing services you use, to ensure you aren’t bankrupted by third-party data processors not being GDPR-compliant, for which you may be liable!
