How Glassdoor is Complying with the EU's GDPR

As you may be aware, the European Union (EU) is starting to enforce a new data protection regulation, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), beginning 25 May 2018. The GDPR is designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.

What We’re Doing to Address GDPR Compliance

Glassdoor is actively working to address GDPR compliance for all our EU resident users. As we approach the 25 May 2018 enforcement date, Glassdoor is conducting the following:

  • Mapping an overview of all our systems to document the use of personal data.

  • Introducing an updated Privacy and Cookie Policy that reflects our notice obligations under the GDPR. Starting today and over the next couple of weeks, we are sending all users and employers an email notifying them of the updated Policy.

  • Reviewing and revising our vendor agreements and implementing new processes to address the GDPR sub-processor requirements.

  • Making technical changes to our platform that will enable us to support the GDPR’s requirements and enhanced data subject rights.
