The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new comprehensive data law in the European Union (“EU”) which updates existing data protection laws to strengthen the protection of personal data for individuals who reside in the EU. The GDPR aims to increase transparency for how personal data is used and to provide EU residents (“data subjects”) with more control over their data. This law goes into effect on 25 May 2018.
What type of data does WON collect?

How does the GDPR affect my data?
GDPR regulates the processing of personal data of data subjects by service providers like WON, and allows users to exercise certain rights with respect to their data. These include the rights to access, correct, restrict processing, export or delete their data. For more information about the GDPR, please refer to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office’s guide to the general data protection regulation.
How do I submit questions or concerns?
If you still have questions or concerns regarding how WON collects or uses your data, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I’m not an EU customer?
Security of user data is central to WON’s mission to make this safest platform to use. As part of our GDPR efforts, we have improved many of our internal data controls and management practices. However, only EU residents have access to our new privacy rights dashboard at this time.
