GDPR is Here, and We've Got You Covered

Posted: May 25, 20181 min read

Today, the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect. (You might have received a few emails about it.) There are a lot of moving parts, but it’s an important step in protecting the fundamental right of privacy for European citizens, and it also raises the bar for data protection, security, and compliance in the industry. This post is here to guide you to our GDPR-related resources.

We’ve created a new GDPR section on our website to go over what GDPR means for you and the steps we’ve taken to ensure the protection of your privacy. In this section, you’ll find:

  • An FAQ to help you understand GDPR and how it affects you as a DigitalOcean customer, which we regularly update as we receive questions.
  • The DigitalOcean Data Processing Agreement (DPA), which enables you to comply with your GDPR obligations.
  • A Data Portability section, which explains how to download your content/data from your DigitalOcean services.

In addition, we updated our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service Agreement to comply with the new requirements of GDPR. If you’re interested in seeing what changed in the Privacy Policy and TOS, check out our GitHub repo where you can compare versions.

We take this new regulation seriously, and we want to get you back to doing what you love—building great software.
