6Connex Announces Commitment to GDPR Compliance

The 6Connex virtual event platform will be fully compliant by the May 25th deadline

Pleasanton, CA / May 22, 2018 – As the only vendor dedicated to innovation in online events, 6Connex today announced compliance with the upcoming GDPR requirements.  The upgrades and modification to the virtual event and environment platform, coupled with the recent announcement of hosting inside the European Union, underscores 6Connex’s leadership as the most secure and reliable platform on the market.

The Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect May 25, 2018, taking data protection for EU citizens even further than current standards.  All companies who may potentially access or capture data from EU citizens data will need to comply with the GDPR, and any company hosting a virtual event will need to ensure their platform provider is compliant.

“6Connex is committed to helping our customers and partners comply with these important regulations, no matter where their data is from or flows,” said Marc Goodell, EVP Environments & Infrastructure.  “Our Legal, Trust and Privacy teams have approved key platform enhancements that ensure customer and end-user data is managed appropriately.”

The 6Connex virtual events and environment platform will capture consent when customers use the platform registration pages, a critical piece of GDPR. The platform will also track lawful basis of processing and will allow for the withdrawal of consent, access/portability, modification, and deletion.
