The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) means that there is one set of data protection rules for all companies operating in the EU wherever they are based. This requires businesses to deploy high standards of data privacy and data protection rules for their clients.
We meet all the standards of the GDPR and we are amongst the first few companies to be a certified GDPR compliant company. We also have standard operating procedures for providing our services and handling client data.
We are associated with Prohal, Chartered Certified Accountants for all our GDPR Compliances. The co-founder of Prohal, Ms. Prodipta Patel is acting as our “Associate Consultant – GDPR Compliances”.
In compliance with the GDPR we have incorporated stringent policies for data privacy and protection as mentioned below:
