In today’s internet age, behemoths like Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn (to name only a few) profitize people’s personal data and are heavily incentivized to prevent individuals from controlling, transferring or removing any of the data they freely provide on these websites. Although recent events have raised significant awareness about these issues, there is still a long way to go to put the power back into the hands of individuals.
This fundamental human right is the driving vision behind Dock and something we take very seriously. The GDPR aligns with our mission to protect these rights and creates more awareness for individuals and companies all over the world to come to this same conclusion.
The GDPR is a comprehensive EU data privacy law that goes into effect on May 25, 2018 and states that everyone has a right to protection of their personal data. This applies not only to EU companies, but to all companies who process data for EU residents.
