Privacy and the GDPR at Mondoweiss

Dave Reed on
Mondoweiss is implementing GDPR compliant privacy policies.

You may have heard about the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law that goes into effect today, May 25, 2018. This law helps safeguard your privacy and the personal information you share with websites like Mondoweiss. While the law specifically covers European citizens, Mondoweiss is committed to protecting the privacy of all users and we have introduced a new GDPR compliant privacy policy. We’re excited about this new law, both as internet users and as an internet-based publisher with a global audience.
