Changes to Subamplify to become GDPR compliant

There are a lot of changes are being made in Subamplify and across the company to make sure we’re GDPR compliant.

We’re working on providing tools to merchants to help them become GDPR compliant. Subamplify retains ownership of data along with it’s merchants using the software for anonymised analysis for product decisions and insights.

We’re making sure all data we collect is purely based on functional requirement. In other words, we only collect what we need to fulfil our intended purpose. We’re also making it possible to delete and export a customer’s data.

We’re reducing the types of data shared across vendors to only the essentials.

We’re making our policies more clear and making sure all marketing practices are driven from consent and intent from our audiences.
