TalentTank and GDPR – Our Commitment to Data Privacy
TalentTank is committed to compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The regulation contains the most significant changes to European data privacy legislation in the last 20 years. It is designed to give EU citizens more control over their data and seeks to unify a number of existing privacy and security laws under one comprehensive law.
Our customers can trust that we have made GDPR a priority and have devoted significant resources toward our efforts to comply with GDPR. This post outlines our approach and progress to date.
