The Salon Owner’s Guide To GDPR: Preparing For May 25th, 2018
GDPR is a new data regulation coming into place in May 2018 across Europe. Cutting to the chase, GDPR aims to unify how consumers’ personal data is protected in EU member states. It also aims to create more transparency about how businesses are storing and using people’s personal data. As Head of Marketing, Connor Keppel, explains in our latest eBook, this is particularly interesting in the hair and beauty industry, as salons collect a substantial amount of personal data from contact details, through to medication records and allergies.
This eBook was written to help you and your team get prepared and get it right from the get-go for the sake of your clients’, team’s and business’ prosperity and success.

All organisations who process or control data need to be aware that the General Data Protection Regulation will apply directly to them. The responsibility to become familiar with the Regulation and comply with its provisions from 25th May 2018 onwards, therefore, lies with the Salon.
