At CharlieHR, we work hard to ensure we follow the principles of the EU General Data Protection Regulation of May 2018. We have a designated Data Protection Officer, and accountability and privacy are principles that are designed into both our software and policies.

Full information on the processes we have in place can be found here.

What’s GDPR?

The GDPR is a data protection law that came into effect on May 25, 2018. It replaced existing EU law to strengthen the protection of “personal data” and the rights of the individual. It's the overarching set of rules which governs the processing and monitoring of EU data.
