What is GDPR?

The goal of GDPR is to protect the personal data of all individuals within the EU from consumption or use by unauthorized parties.

Why does GDPR matter?
- GDPR impacts all companies with global operations. Companies based in the US are not exempt from GDPR, as any data originating in the EU is subject to the regulation.
What are we doing to be compliant?
We are proactively building privacy tools. Specifically, we are:
- Building more robust privacy controls to better protect user data.
- Establishing a framework to evaluate and update privacy controls for pre-existing features and every new feature that we add.
- Creating systems to facilitate requests about inaccurate data, and to provide user data that is kept within Carta.
- Communicating with our vendors and customers about the efforts and changes we are making to better protect our user data.
- Working to become an “adequate jurisdiction” through Privacy Shield.
