The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR is a standardized user data protection framework which operates across Europe and sets up obligations for organizations like Sniply on how to handle the personal data of people in the European Economic Area.
Sniply is compliant with the GDPR. The following FAQs help explain what the GDPR is and provide further details.
What is the GDPR?
The GDPR is a new European data protection law which sets out various requirements that will become effective on May 25, 2018. It replaces the existing data protection regime for the EU under Directive 95/46/EC, and is intended to harmonize data protection laws throughout the EU by applying a single data protection law that is binding throughout all Member States.

How does Sniply protect my data and the data of people who click on my Sniply Links?
For people who click on Sniply links, we only collect data necessary to provide the service. We anonymize all IP addresses from visitors not logged into an account and make efforts to ensure we do not capture other personal data. Please note that certain Sniply features (Form CTAs, Retargeting Pixels) enable you to potentially collect additional customer data via your Sniply call-to-actions. You are responsible for ensuring that you have adequate consent given your situation.
Where is Sniply based?
Sniply is a Canadian company based in Vancouver, British Columbia. For the purposes of EU data protection law, Canada is considered a country which provides adequate protections for personal data, as confirmed by the European Commission in Commission Decision 2002/2/EC. Accordingly Sniply already resides in a country with strong data protection laws. In this way, the GDPR is more of an evolution than a revolution for Sniply.
