GDPR Data Protection: NinjaCat and the GDPR

What is the GDPR?

The GDPR is an EU privacy law that will take effect on May 25, 2018. It will regulate the treatment and use of personal data belonging to EU citizens.

Will the GDPR apply to my business?

EU-based businesses, as well as anyone processing the personal data of EU citizens, will likely be affected by the GDPR. If you ever collect, record, store, use, or erase personal data from customers or contacts in the EU, the GDPR should be on your radar.

What NinjaCat is doing to prepare?

NinjaCat is a US based company with offices in the UK. We have a core data protection team comprised of senior members of the Data, Security, and Architecture teams, as well as outside legal counsel that is dedicated to ensuring that NinjaCat is GDPR-compliant and assisting with the compliance of our customers.

Security and Trust

Keeping your data safe and secure is paramount. We adopt industry standard design led approaches to security at all levels from the way we design our software, its deployment, maintenance, monitoring and platform architecture and operational standards.    At all times you retain control over the data NinjaCat has access to and the transactions that occur and at any time can request a deletion of all personal data.
