General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Compliance Statement BACK
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) comes into force across the European Union on May 25, 2018 and brings with it the most significant changes to data protection law in decades. Based on privacy by design and taking a risk-based approach, the GDPR has been designed to meet the requirements of the digital age.
The 21st Century brings with it broader use of technology, new definitions of what constitutes personal data, and a vast increase in cross-border processing. The GDPR aims to standardize data protection laws and processing across the EU; affording individuals stronger, more consistent rights to access and control their personal information. This standardization applies not only to companies based in the EU. But to a certain degree, those non-EU based companies like Web2DM that are potentially doing business in the EU.
Our Commitment
Creative Communications LLC. (“Web2DM”, “we”, “our”, “us”, or the “Company) is committed to ensuring the security and protection of the personal information that we process, and to provide a compliant and consistent approach to data protection. We have always had a robust and effective data protection program in place which complies with existing law and abides by applicable data protection principles. However, we recognize our obligations in updating and expanding this program to meet the demands of the GDPR and the applicable U.S. Data Protection Laws.
Web2DM is dedicated to safeguarding the personal information under our control and in developing a data protection regime that is effective, fit for purpose and demonstrates an understanding of, and appreciation for the new Regulation. Our preparation and objectives for GDPR compliance have been summarized in this statement and include the development and implementation of new data protection roles, policies, procedures, controls and measures (the “GDPR Standard”) to ensure maximum and ongoing compliance.
How We are Preparing for the GDPR
Web2DM already has a consistent level of data protection and security across our organization, however it is our aim to be fully compliant with the GDPR as necessary by Oct 1, 2019. Our preparation includes, but is not limited to:
Data Subject Rights
In addition to the policies and procedures mentioned above that ensure individuals can enforce their data protection rights, we provide easy to access information to clients of a person’s right to access any personal information that Web2DM processes about them and to request information about:
Information Security; Technical and Organizational Measures

GDPR Roles and Employees
Web2DM has designated its experienced IT staff as our Data Protection Officer (DPO) and are establishing a data privacy team to develop and implement our roadmap for complying with the new data protection Regulation. The team is responsible for promoting awareness of the GDPR across the organization, assessing our GDPR readiness, identifying any gap areas and implementing any new policies, procedures and measures.
Web2DM understands that continuous employee awareness and understanding is vital to the continued compliance of the GDPR and have involved our employees in our preparation plans. We have implemented or are in the process of implementing an employee training program specific to the GDPR which will be provided to all employees, and forms part of our induction and training program.
