The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Policy
What is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on May 25th 2018 automatically applies to all 28 member states of the European Union, before its implementation. The misuse of a person's data was punishable relatively under “Data Protection Directive 1995”, known in the UK as the Data Protection Act 1998.
Why was the GDPR adopted?
Technology has dramatically since 1995. Over the last few years businesses have become more dependent on the web and new laws were needed to address the modern world of large-scale internet use and social media.
GDPR, which is an acronym for General Data Protection Regulation, was enacted by the European Parliament ('EP') to further strengthen data protection for people inside of the European Union ('EU').
The European Union's Regulation 2016/6791, the new General Data Protection Regulation, came into effect on May 25, 2018 in order to regulate the processing by an individual, a company or an organization of personal data relating to EU resident individuals in the EU.
The protection of natural persons in relation to the processing of personal data is a fundamental right. Article 8(1) of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (the 'Charter') and Article 16(1) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) provides that everyone has the right to the protection of personal data concerning him or her.
GDPR Compliance and Data Protection
The principle of accountability is a cornerstone of the GDPR. According to the GDPR, a business /organization is responsible for complying with all data protection principles and is also responsible for demonstrating compliance. The GDPR provides businesses/organizations with a set of tools to help demonstrate accountability, some of which have to be mandatorily put in place.
The legislation makes EU resident individuals' privacy rights stronger by limiting processing of their personal data, significantly expanding their rights over their data, and giving them greater visibility into the nature, purpose, and use of their data.
Under GDPR, organizations need to ensure they are compliant, or risk financial penalties.
GDPR compliance requires commitment from agency clients, as it does with other data protection laws. We are tracking the recommendations and guidance issued by regulatory authorities to assist us to develop tools appropriate for use of 3marketeers' services.
GDPR is in force for every organization that tracks EU resident behavior inside of the EU and that processes or uses the personal data of EU residents.

The right to be fully informed
The right to consent
The right to withdraw consent
