A farewell to our customers
With sadness, DigMyData will shut down on May 25th, 2018, after years of operation.
Unfortunately the European Union's new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation),
introduced on 25th May 2018, creates uncertainty and risk that I can't justify taking.
We tried our best to avoid this but we currently lack the resources and investments
required to implement the changes required by the law.
GDPR threatens website owners with fines of 4% of turnover or €20 million (whichever is higher)
if they do not jump through a number of ambiguously-defined hoops. The law, combined with
parasitic no-win-no-fee legal firms, puts website owners at risk of vindictive reporting.
Therefore the risk posed by GDPR is unacceptably high.
On May 25th, the app will shutdown, and all existing customer data will be deleted from our servers.
