Over the past few months, monday.com has been preparing for the GDPR. For those who are not familiar with it, the GDPR is the biggest change in data protection laws in Europe since the 1995 introduction of the European Union (EU) Data Protection Directive. The GDPR aims to strengthen the security and protection of personal data in the EU.
With the enforcement date quickly approaching, we though it would be a good time to update you guys with the most frequently asked questions about this new regulation.

Yes. monday.com will be compliant to the extent required on or before May 25, 2018 and will continue to comply on an ongoing basis. You can learn more about Monday and GDPR at www.monday.com/terms/gdpr
- Where does monday.com hosts its customer data? (or) Is monday.com able to restrict data hosting and processing within the EU?
monday.com hosts its customer data in Amazon Web Services (AWS) data center in the US. We don't have plans to use data centers in the EU and cannot restrict data to the EU.
