Welcoming GDPR at Marvel

Staying compliant with GDPR
Welcoming GDPR at Marvel

In the coming months, businesses and organisations across the globe which handle business with EU residents are preparing for the arrival of a new law. On May 25, 2018, the new standard of data protection called GDPR will take effect and place several new obligations on companies handling or tracking personal data.

At Marvel, we’re committed to fulfilling our obligations and ensuring that our customers understand and prepare for the new law. To keep everyone up to date and our methods transparent, we’ve created this page. Think of it as our GDPR hub, containing the latest news, plans and resources for ourselves and our customers - but here’s an overview to get started.
