How Appsembler is Preparing for the GDPR
Appsembler is committed to being GDPR-compliant by May 25, 2018.
What is the GDPR?
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will set a new standard for how companies use and protect EU citizens’ data. It will take effect on May 25, 2018.
At Appsembler, we’ve been working hard to prepare for GDPR, to ensure that we fulfill its obligations and maintain our transparency about how we use data.
The full text of the GDPR can be found here.
Does the GDPR apply to me?
Yes, most likely.
If you hold or process the data of any EU citizens, the GDPR will apply to you, whether you’re based in the EU or not. Even if you don’t currently hold or process any EU data, you should be aware of the GDPR and endeavor to comply with it, especially if your site allows open enrollment.
If anyone from the EU registers in the future, you’ll have a duty to protect their data and follow the GDPR. We also anticipate that other countries will follow the EU countries’ lead and pass similar privacy protections. That’s why we’re committed to supporting all of our customers to do so, regardless of whether they currently have learners in the EU or not.

We’re committed to supporting our customers to prepare for the EU GDPR. We’re closely following its developing guidelines and are adapting our plans accordingly.
We are committed to being GDPR-ready by May 25, 2018.
