is GDPR Compliant

April 29, 2018

We ❤ Data

Here at Grow, we understand the power and importance of data to running a successful business. We know that being able to make data-driven decisions quickly can mean the difference between beating the competition or not.

We also understand, however, that businesses have a responsibility to treat their data and their customer’s data with care and protect it from being used in an inappropriate way.

GDPR—What’s happening?

On the 25 May 2018, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become effective and will bring considerable changes to data protection laws in the European Economic Area (EEA). The regulations will also impact those dealing with the data of people who reside in the EEA, regardless of their company location.

The core principle is that an individual has a fundamental right to have their personal data protected and only processed (that is, obtained, recorded, held, used, or disclosed) under certain circumstances and with the necessary permissions. This will have a wide impact on the way that businesses operate.

The aim of the GDPR is to ensure good information handling practice, and we are delighted to say that Grow is fully compliant as a data controller and a data processor.

Our commitment to our customers

We take data security and privacy very seriously here at Grow, and we have established and maintain a comprehensive data protection compliance program, including:

  • Updating our Terms of Service and EMEA Privacy Policy to reflect our compliance with GDPR
  • Continuing to support international data transfers by maintaining our Privacy Shield Policy
  • Establishing the mechanisms and processes to honour the new data subject rights
  • Continuing to invest in our security infrastructure—see our security overview for full details
  • Delivering an ongoing data protection training program to our employees, including Executive Team
  • Continually assessing the latest advice and guidance around GDPR to ensure that Grow is providing highest standards of privacy and security

The intention of this post is to inform our clients, prospects, and partners what Grow is doing to comply with new regulations, rather than to explain what GDPR is. If you’d like to know more about the new regulations and the impacts it will have, then please see the reading list at the bottom of the article.

If you have any questions regarding what we’re doing at Grow regarding GDPR, Security, or Privacy, please email
