What is GDPR?
On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will officially take effect. For European individuals, GDPR expands their data privacy rights and gives them more power to control their data. For companies that process the personal data of these European individuals, GDPR requires compliance with a new set of regulations.
GDPR outlines specific requirements that these companies must satisfy, as well as specific rights that European individuals can exercise with these companies. Further information on GDPR is available on the European Union’s official website.
New and updated policies and data protection offerings
In order to best meet the needs of our European users and of businesses that use Airtable to process the personal data of EU citizens, we've introduced the following new and updated policies and offerings:
- Data Processing Agreements are available upon request. DPAs include standard contractual clauses (“Model Clauses”) that are the mechanism for GDPR-compliant data transfer.
- We've introduced a streamlined process to request the permanent deletion of bases and workspaces prior to the standard retention period.
- We've appointed a Data Protection Officer.
