What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation is a new EU law that comes into force on 25th May 2018. It gives people more control over the ways that organisations use their data. You can find out more about GDPR here.
Is GatherContent GDPR compliant?
GatherContent is compliant with GDPR. As we're located within the EU, this is a legal obligation.
What information do we store?
We store content (copy, images, files, attachments) that is uploaded by our customers. All customers have control over this data as it can be edited, archived or deleted using individual logins.
We also store your company name, your company type (agency or in-house), your payment plan, your usage, the members in your account and your email address.
If you contact our support team with a query or to report a problem with our service we keep a record of that communication.
Our marketing team also store your name and email address if you download any of our resources or register for webinars. Your email address will be used for marketing and communications purposes.
