Introduction to Our GDPR Commitment

At Web Design for Small Business, we’re committed to maintaining the highest standards of data privacy and security. Upholding the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is central to our dedication to safeguarding our clients’ personal data.

What Is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy in the European Union and the European Economic Area. It also pertains to the transfer of personal data outside these regions. GDPR aims to give individuals control over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by standardising data protection laws.
