GDPR and WarehouseTWO

By now, you probably have received many emails from on-line services concerning the "General Data Protection Regulation", or "GDPR".  This is the European Economic Union's recently enacted law pertaining to the collection and use of private information collected by internet-based service providers, such as Facebook, AOL and Google.

WarehouseTWO's privacy policy is short and simple.  The essence is that we store very little data about you (e.g., name, email address, phone number, employer's address), and we do not monetize it in any way.  That is, we do not sell to any third party whatever information we have about you.  Doing so is not part of our business model.  Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about what data we collect.

To learn more about "GDPR" click here.  For a good guide on what your own company should review to determine compliance to "GDPR", click here.  Of course, if you do not do business with anyone in Europe, move on.  Nothing to see here.  :-)

WarehouseTWO Tip of the Month

Archive your manually uploaded inventory data file.  If your inventory data posting has expired, upload the most recently uploaded file, to give you some extra time to create a fresh inventory data upload file.  Click here to learn more about uploading inventory data to the WarehouseTWO system.
