What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation is a law imposed by the EU. GDPR helped to create a standardised across the continent for how data is collected, used and protected. This meant businesses and organisations had to make some changes to ultimately become transparent to their website. All countries within the EU must comply with this law, the UK is also included in this list of countries despite no longer being part of the European Union. This law was introduced to protect the privacy of everyone located in the EU, regardless of if they are citizens or just visiting. Implemented in May 2018, GDPR replaced the 1995 Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and included a lot of changes that tightened up Data Protection of EU users.

How we made sure we are GDPR compliant...
We made the necessary checks to our own website to make sure we were compliant with GDPR, we followed a few processes to make sure this was done right.
We conducted two audits:
- How we Collect and Process Data
We reviewed all of the activities conducted by Motivation Group, investigating what data we absolutely needed to collect to great a better user experience, and how this data is processed. We ensured the necessary safeguarding measures are in place to protect our users and their data.
- Third-Party Vendors
To assist the collaboration between our team and our users, we have Third-Party Vendors. As part of our accountability we have checked and validated the GDPR compliance of each of our Third-Party Vendors.
