General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

What is GDPR?

In 2016, the European Commission approved and adopted the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). GDPR is a significant change in data protection regulation in the EU and replaces the existing legal framework (the Data Protection Directive and the various member state laws). It will come into effect on May 25, 2018.

Why is GDPR important?

GDPR adds some new requirements regarding how companies should protect individuals' data that they process. It also raises the stakes for compliance by increasing enforcement and imposing greater fines for breaches. We are following the developments about GDPR and are taking the necessary steps to become compliant.

Does GDPR require that my information be stored in the EU?

No. Under GDPR a company is allowed to transfer personal data outside of the EU provided that it puts in place a mechanism, approved under GDPR, to make sure that personal data is adequately protected even when it is transferred outside of the EU. We have certified under the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield frameworks to satisfy this requirement (more detail in the Privacy Shield tab), and also offer a Data Processing Addendum (DPA) to all customer who require it (see below information about cross border data transfers).

Who are your sub-processors?

We share certain information with companies that may be considered our "sub-processors" under GDPR. This information is limited to the following:

  • We use Infusionsoft, Square, PayPal, Stripe, Eastbay, and Wooter as help desk and payment software to communicate with our customers. Sometimes these communications includes the personal information of your customers' information.
  • We use GoDaddy, Amazon Web Services, SportsEngine and to process our emails. These companies host the data on physical and cloud servers that we pay for. For more information about our security practices as it relates to our data centers, see this document:

How do you manage access to my information (DSR requests)

As of now our intention is to service DSR requests (such as delete and export) manually. If you have an account with us, you may access, correct, or request that we delete your personal data by contacting us at

This request can include personal data of other individuals, like your employees or customers that you have provided to us and who have requested this of you. We will respond to these requests within 14 days or less, which is well within the GDPR requirement of 30 days.

What happens when the UK leaves the EU?

We chose the UK as a reasonable location for GDPR enforcement, and will reassess in 2019 before Brexit takes effect. The UK is hoping for a unique status under GDPR and are working towards it. For the time being the UK has declared it will be GDPR compliant and its new data protection bill is in line with GDPR.

What has CBL Worldwide done to comply with GDPR?

We have implemented and are implementing changes

Our compliance, data protection, and information security teams are working to prepare our services for GDPR. We reviewed our data processing activities, and are making any changes that are needed in advance of the GDPR effective date.

We have addressed cross border data transfers

Like the Data Protection Directive that is presently in effect, GDPR includes provisions on international data transfer mechanisms. In order to comply with these provisions we have certified under the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield frameworks, a mechanism that had been approved for cross border transfer of personal data under the Directive and expected to apply under GDPR as well.

We have also worked with legal counsel to create a standard Data Processing Addendum (DPA), which meets with GDPR requirements for agreements between Data Controllers (you) and Data Processors (us). This outlines in detail our current security practices. To receive and sign a copy of our DPA, please visit the Data Processing Addendum tab on this page.

We are here for you

We are working with our customers to answer any questions and address any concerns regarding how we protect their personal data and gearing up for GDPR. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at
