The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. GDPR also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. It aims to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU. We take the GDPR very seriously at Cobalt and apply all the following changes and features to all of our users around the world. This article describes the GDPR compliance status of Cobalt.
