GDPR Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is a new legislation by the EU parliament that lays out requirements for data collection, storage, and usage practice.
This new law is meant to replace the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (DPD) to significantly enhance the protection of the personal data of EU citizens and increase the obligations on organisations who collect or process personal data.
Q: When is the GDPR coming into effect?
The GDPR will become fully enforceable on May 25, 2018.
Q: Who does the GDPR affect?
Although the GDPR is an EU regulation, the territorial scope of GDPR is potentially far wider as it can also apply to non-EU businesses in certain cases. Businesses that market their products to or monitor the behavior of people in the EU are required to be GDPR compliant.
Q: What constitutes personal data under the GDPR?
Any information related to a natural person, defined as ‘Data Subject’ in GDPR, that can be used to directly or indirectly identify the person. It can be anything from a name, a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social networking websites, medical information, or a computer IP address.
Q. How is Appier prepared for GDPR enforcement?
We respect the privacy of Data Subject and ensure our compliance with a range of privacy protection regulatory criteria. These include requirements imposed by EU data protection legislation such as General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) starting in May 2018.
Q. Where can I find detailed information about the GDPR?

To succeed in the increasingly competitive world of mobile apps, finding ways to stand out and stay ahead of the competition is essential. Deep linking is a simple, effective way to optimize your effort. However, not all brands are taking advantage of it. So, what is deep linking? What are the different types of deep links you can implement, and how can brands benefit from it? Read on to learn more. What Is Deep Linking? Deep linking is a tactic marketers can use to send mobile users directly to a specific page, such as a promotion or product page, within an app. A deep link is different from a standard link, which typically directs users to a browser version or the app homepage. Deep links can be added to a wide range of channels, including web pages, emails, SMS, ads, and social media sites. For example, a retailer can create a social post for a product that directs shoppers to that specific product page in the app. Deep links can also be added to push notifications to send users directly to a new app feature. This technology works by using URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) schemes. URI schemes are similar
Aziza Sheerin, Regional Director for General Assembly, recently spoke to us about technology skills required for driving digital transformation, and how people can apply those in their organizations. Can you tell us a bit about your role at General Assembly and what GA does? General Assembly started out in 2011 in New York City, and we’ve now scaled to more than 32 cities across 4 continents. GA enables individuals and enterprises to acquire today’s most in-demand skills in areas such as data science, digital marketing, software engineering, user experience design, and product management. We want to make the future work for everyone. I joined GA five years ago as the first person on the ground in Singapore. I’m responsible for growth, strategic partnerships, and operations in this region. Many people want to gain technical skills to stay relevant to their employers, and employers want to accelerate digital transformation by having more people with technology skills. There’s discussion and evidence that businesses are accelerating digital transformation due to the pandemic. Are you seeing this reflected in requests from both individuals and organizations? We’ve seen interesting shifts happen during this period as a result of the pandemic, both by employers
To stay relevant and competitive, every type of business needs to become technical in part if not all of their operations. The world is moving too fast to stay analogue. This means however that almost everywhere in the world, there is great demand for technology talent and limited supply, particularly in areas such as artificial intelligence (AI). What can we learn from those who are already the leading minds in this space? Recently, our own Chief AI Scientist Dr. Min Sun sat down with Dr. Masashi Sugiyama, faculty at the University of Tokyo and Director of the RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project (AIP), to discuss a variety of AI-related topics. Check out our video of their insightful conversation below, and hear our experts’ points of view on how AI research has advanced over the past 10-20 years in Japan and beyond, and particularly in the past three to four. They discussed advancements in machine learning, and the goal to ultimately reduce the amount of supervision required to ‘teach’ the machine, which would indicate significant progression in AI capabilities. This is coupled with what these advancements might look like in the future, such as in the area of healthcare, allowing
