After the storm, here comes the rainbow arch of colours. Data compliance of today will hopefully bring harmony by applying a series of rules and regulations. The new digital world is regulated by the GDPR in the EU with less known several other regulations, the ePrivacy, the PECR, Convention 108, the NIS, the eCommerce Directive, IP laws, ….

We want to help every individual and every organisations to know their rights and liabilities. We want to help you walk trough the labyrinth, under the DATARAINBOW.

We hope you will not see regulations simply as a burden, more as a Fundamental Human Right for individuals bringing better trust for a better business.

Who created DATARAINBOW ?
