Changes to the Unicorn Subscription Services Terms and Conditions (all products and Services)
Why the change?
GDPR, the new General Data Protection Regulation: There is a new European General Data Protection Regulation (known as the GDPR) which will come into force in the UK from 25 May 2018. The new legislation represents a significant change to the legal requirements to protect personal data and how ‘data controllers’ and ‘data processors’ deal with one another.
Information on the GDPR and what this may mean for your business can be found on the UK Information Commissioner’s website here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/data-protection-reform/overview-of-the-gdpr/
We have updated the Data Protection clause of our terms and conditions to help us and you comply with the legal requirements of the GDPR.
The following Data Protection provision shall take effect from 00:01 on 25 May 2018 and shall supersede the relevant clauses of your current Agreement. All other terms and conditions remain unchanged.
We strongly recommend that you read and save a copy of the new clause for future reference.
