How is Salesforce preparing for the GDPR?
At Salesforce, trust is our #1 value and nothing is more important than the success of our customers and the protection of our customers’ data. Salesforce has demonstrated this commitment by being the first top 10 software company in the world to achieve approval for our Binding Corporate Rules from European data protection authorities.
Salesforce welcomes the GDPR as an important step forward in streamlining data protection requirements across the EU and has worked closely with the European lawmakers, EU data protection authorities, and industry associations throughout the development and approval of the GDPR.
Salesforce is committed to complying with the GDPR in providing services to customers. We are also committed to ensuring our customers can continue to use our services in compliance with the GDPR. Similar to existing legal requirements, this requires a partnership between Salesforce and our customers in their use of our services. We have closely analyzed the requirements of the GDPR and are working to make any necessary enhancements to our products, contracts, and documentation to help support Salesforce’s and our customers’ compliance with the GDPR. In the coming months, we will release more specific information on each of these work streams.
