I realise this is a UK-only issue but I am wondering whether anyone at
Emma is able to advise regarding GDRP - General Data Regulation Protection - a whole new set of reulations that will come into force in the UK from May 1st this year? It brings in many new controls to protect the consumer and failure to comply can result in very large fines for companies. It looks like any older, existing databases may need to be started again from scratch. I am trying to work out what we can do to ensure we comply and whether the databsis we hold within the Emma system are compliant.

Hi there!   We are working hard now to get everything we need in place for the GDRP rollout. 

We are putting together some resources to help you along and make sure that you have everything you need for success.   As soon as we have those resources released, I'll post and let you know! 

Stay tuned!

Hey there!  I don't yet.  I do know we're working to get them out as soon as we possibly can, March being the latest.  

I'll keep you posted as I get more info.

I went ahead and merged your request into this one from earlier.  

Short answer:  Yes, we are working hard to get everything in place on our end.  

We also have some resources headed your way to help make sure you have everything you need.  

Absolutely as soon as we get those resources finished up and live I'll let you know here as well as make a formal announcement in the channel.

Hi Folks!   I'll be making a general announcement about this now, but I wanted to send a link as soon as I got it.  

Emma has launched our new "Trust Center" at www.myemma.com/trust  

Here we have information about GDPR, Privacy, and a link to our status page.  

More information will be provided here as we grow the Trust Center over the next couple of months and have more specific information about GDPR.   

Go ahead and check that out and reach out if you have any additional questions!
