Next Gear Solutions has reviewed its systems and processes to ensure that we are compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR is a regulation that requires businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of European Union citizens for transactions that occur within European Union member states.
Next Gear Solutions relies on Amazon Web Services (AWS) for hosting its software platform in the European Union. AWS is the ‘controller’’ for the NGS systems and AWS is compliant with GDPR.
