GDPR Compliance Statement
What is GDPR Compliance?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU-wide regulation for the protection of European citizens’ data that comes into force on the 25th of May 2018 and all companies that collect such data will need to comply with it. It establishes a set of compliance and security processes around managing personally identifiable information so that it is not misused.

Which data can be safely stored in cookies without having to request consent?
Strictly speaking, you don’t need consent for:
Technical cookies that are solely necessary for the provision of the service. (eg. preference cookies, session cookies, load balancing, etc.)
- Essential — Essential cookies are necessary for the basic functionality of your website. An essential cookie remembers a given user as they browse your site. For example, essential cookies keep track of what page a user is on or from what account a user is accessing your site. Under the Cookie Law and the GDPR, essential cookies and strictly necessary cookies are the same, and these necessary trackers don’t require user consent.
- Performance and functionality — Unlike essential cookies, these cookies are used to supplement your site’s functionality but aren’t necessary. For example, performance and functionality cookies can help play videos on your site.
- Note — There is no need for any consent when our products don’t use this data for any kind of user profiling.
This helps a lot while implementing the new GDPR restrictions because it’s not necessary to create a data processing contract with an external company!
