Omaha, Neb. (PRWEB) May 24, 2018
Mineral Interactive (“Mineral”), a leading digital strategy, design and marketing agency for financial services, announced today that it has implemented GDPR compliance across all managed client web properties.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new set of European Union laws governing consumer data protection that will take effect Friday, May 25, 2018. Since the regulation concerns the data of EU residents, financial advisors in the U.S. may not realize how GDPR impacts the data they process, use and store.
“GDPR is not only landmark legislation in terms of data security, it’s going to fundamentally change the way we do business,” said FPC Investment Advisory CEO Bijan Golkar, CFP®. “Advisors especially may not realize the implications of GDPR on their firm, but they should be aware of these new regulations and ensure compliance, as this is the new standard.”
Mineral has taken steps in the weeks leading up to the legislation going into effect to ensure managed client websites comply with all aspects of GDPR, including the right to be forgotten, personal data access, services consent and cookies consent.
“Consumer privacy is something to take seriously,” said Mineral CEO Jud Mackrill. “While the majority of our advisor-clients are based in North America, this doesn’t mean their clients are. We believe that the GDPR is the new standard for personal data privacy and it is our commitment to help our advisors maintain security, compliance and privacy.”
Mineral has added this privacy standard to its list of security and privacy services provided to partner firms.
