In 2016, the European Commission approved and adopted the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). GDPR is a significant change in data protection regulation in the EU and replaces the existing legal framework (the Data Protection Directive and the various member state laws). It will come into effect on May 25, 2018. Appme is fully committed to achieving and upholding ongoing compliance with GDPR prior to the effective date.
Here’s some data security information you need to know

Data protection measures
We have a number of security measures in place to protect data present in your Appme account.
Appme shares as little data as possible with 3rd parties. If we share data, it is only your email address and used for reasons described below. All of your store’s data is completely contained. The only 3rd parties we work with are:
- Google Analytics – Google tag manager for tracking views of the WPEnjoy site and application.
- CloudFlare – to improve speed by managing caching.
Also, our staff will never access your data unless required for support reasons.
When working a support issue we do our best to respect your privacy as much as possible, we only access the minimum data needed to resolve your issue.
Finally, it’s worth noting Appme is a very small organisation with less than 10 employees, so access to any data is very limited. On top of that, we also limit access based on IP(security proxy).
