Visual Studio App Center and GDPR

John Powell

On the Visual Studio App Center team, our engineers are completely aligned with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which gives consumers better and more explicit control of data – especially their personal data.

For those of you who are less familiar with the GDPR, it is a European regulation designed to give consumers greater control over their data. One way the regulation establishes that control is through a set of Data Subject Rights (DSRs), where the consumer is a data subject and those honoring rights are either data controllers responding directly to the data subject or data processors who support the data controller in responding to data subjects. The relationship could be similar to the controller customer acting as the landlord and the processor is the company the landlord hires to keep everything running and secure in the building.
