GDPR, Geniuslink & You


What does GDPR have to do with Geniuslink, a US based company?  Well, two things:

First, we see roughly 35% of our clients, and 55% of the clicks we process, coming from Europe so it’s very important that we pay attention to GDPR and be in compliance.  

Second, one of the key elements of our original thesis is that a global perspective is key to maximizing revenue so paying attention to major updates in international compliance is an important piece to that.

In the bigger picture, we are actually big fans of what GDPR is trying to do, at least the underlying theory.  However, the ambiguity makes preparing for it more of a challenge than we’d like to admit. But at the end of the day, we agree that your personal information should belong to you and companies should respect that and step up when you give them consent to collect it.
