For security purposes, if you would like to access personal information that we hold about you, we require you to put your request in writing with your signature.

Starting May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becomes enforceable, meaning you must be compliant with it if you have users who reside within the EU.
The GDPR effectively replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, and includes new requirements that you must meet.
The purpose of the GDPR is much the same as previous regulations: to protect the privacy and personal information of residents of the EU.
The GDPR builds upon old laws to create a more clear and complete set of rules that you must follow when collecting and using personal data from residents of the EU. The goal is for the GDPR to cover the entire region to make compliance easier than dealing with separate laws in multiple different countries.
