General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
We’re committed to partnering with Spefz customers and users to help them understand and prepare for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR is the most comprehensive EU data privacy law in decades, and will go into effect on May 25, 2018.
Besides strengthening and standardizing user data privacy across the EU nations, it will require new or additional obligations on all organizations that handle EU citizens’ personal data, regardless of where the organizations themselves are located. On this page, we’ll explain our methods and plans to achieve GDPR compliance, both for ourselves and for our customers.
Preparing for the GDPR The GDPR’s updated requirements are significant and our global team is working diligently to bring Slack’s product offerings and contractual commitments in line so customers can prepare themselves before May 25, 2018. Measures to achieve this include:
- Continuing to invest in our security infrastructure
- Making sure we have the appropriate contractual terms in place
- Ensuring we can continue to support international data transfers
- Product offerings that include new tools for data portability and data management
