Shimo is GDPR / DSGVO compliant

On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will officially take effect. For European individuals, GDPR (DSGVO) expands their data privacy rights and gives them more power to control their data. GDPR (DSGVO) also requires compliance from companies that process the personal data of these European individuals.

Ensuring our users’ data privacy and security has always been top priority to Shimo's product development and business. As your service provider, we make sure to evaluate all our practices to safeguard your information as effectively as possible.

As a German company, Shimo will be fully GDPR compliant by May 25th, 2018.
