Over the past few years, there has been an increasing discussion within society about how companies should protect personal data. The GDPR came into force, requiring organizations to adopt a more transparent approach to the data collection, processing, transfer, and protection. Following the GDPR’s passage, several U.S. states were proposing their own new data protection laws. The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), passed in June 2018, was to become the most comprehensive data privacy law in the U.S. In short, regulators in Europe and the U.S. were making legislative changes at a state and federal level, along with introducing enforcement actions. These actions varied greatly in different geographic regions. Consumers themselves also started calling for more transparency in this field.
In 2019, the leaders at Flo engaged an independent third party to provide a comprehensive assessment of our data security and privacy program. We have always strived to make our platform secure and private for millions of women around the world, and our company has robust, reliable compliance plans in place.
