pro-Forms and GDPR

As from 25th May 2018 both pro-Forms and our system Users have new and updated obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation. To help, we've built a set of tools that not only protects your own personal data but also that of your customers.

About the GDPR:

  • Data redaction - for people wanting to exercise their 'Right to be Forgotten'
