The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive European Union law on data privacy. It took effect on May 25, 2018, creating new obligations for businesses and new rights for individuals in the EU.
The data we process has been made 'manifestly public' (GDPR Article 9.2(e)) by the data subject. We only crawl and index publicly available email addresses and phone numbers, such as those that are accessible from websites and social media. ContactOut has a 'legitimate interest' (GDPR Article 6.1(f)) in empowering recruiters to connect with candidates.
