GDPR and Umbraco

Our website uses Umbraco as the content management system with which to run our online sites.

On the 25th of May 2018 the EU General Data Protection Regulation will be enforced. We have investigated where improvements need to be made in order for all Umbraco products and services to meet the neccessary data protection requirements.

Over the coming months, you will be able to view all relevant documents and information about Umbraco & GDPR on this page (the site will be updated regularly with new information).

We have a plan in place and we will of course be compliant before the GDPR deadline in May.
