GDPR and Umbraco

How we ensure to stay GDPR compliant

The EU General Data Protection Regulation was enforced on the 25th of May 2018. As Umbraco HQ is placed in Odense, Denmark, we have to comply with these regulations.

Here you’ll find GDPR related resources such as; an explanation of Umbraco’s role and responsibilities, our ready-to-download Data Processing Agreement as well as the implementations to our software that we have provided our users with to support them in meeting these regulations.

GDPR and you

The above is all about how we, Umbraco, are and stays GDPR compliant. During our work with GDPR, we discovered ways in which we could support our users with their GDPR compliance journey, making things just a tad simpler in regard to keeping track and control their data collection and user data access. This lead to implementations in the Umbraco CMS and Umbraco Forms which were rolled out as part of the Umbraco 7.9.0 and Umbraco Forms 7.0.0 releases. Implementations that are - and will continue to be - part of later releases, including Umbraco version 8.
