At Salesforce, trust is our #1 value. The protection of our customers’ data is paramount.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive European privacy law that takes effect on May 25, 2018. Salesforce welcomes this law as an important step forward in streamlining data protection requirements across the European Union and as an opportunity for Salesforce to deepen our commitment to data protection.
We are committed to our customers’ success, including compliance with the GDPR.
Similar to existing privacy laws, compliance with the GDPR requires a partnership between Salesforce and our customers in their use of our services. Salesforce will comply with the GDPR in the delivery of our service to our customers. We are also dedicated to helping our customers comply with the GDPR. We have closely analyzed the requirements of the GDPR, and are working to make enhancements to our products, contracts and documentation to support compliance with the GDPR.
Today we are announcing several resources to help our customers prepare for the GDPR:
These resources supplement Salesforce’s robust privacy and security program that meets the highest standards in the industry. We have consistently reinforced our commitment to protecting our customers’ data through our actions over the last few years:
Additionally, our Trust and Compliance documentation provides more information about our privacy and security certifications and controls.
We look forward to working with our customers’ GDPR compliance efforts. For more information, we encourage our customers to visit our GDPR Resource Website and take the EU Privacy Law Basics Module on Trailhead.
