A few words about data protection the GDN way
As any network organization, the GDN requires a contacts database to stay in touch with you : after all, what is a Network if it has no participating nodes? But – since our network consist of persons, the data that our contacts database holds are personal; moreover, since many of the persons in our network are either citizens of the European Union or maintain close dealings with citizens in the EU, the GDN has to comply with the rules of the recently enacted EU General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR; and this holds particularly true for the way we store, use and manage data in the GDN contacts database .
Now, given the GDN’s stance on privacy as being one of the essential building blocks to make the GDN vision and goals happen, the GDN wholeheartedly embraces the GDPR. Therefore, we want you to know what we do with your data and, of course, give you access to the data we keep on file about you and put you in control of your data.
