With the deadline of May 25th, 2018 looming, organisations are hustling to become compliant with the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).However, it appears that the new regulations may have a completely unintended consequence. Yes, we're sorry to have to tell you this, but as a supplier of technology that enables firms to comply with GDPR - Christmas will have to be cancelled. It might have been the snow in London last week that turned our minds to Christmas and all the joy, bonhomie and gift giving (and receiving) that comes with it. But then, as our team worked on a GDPR customer case, the two realities came crashing together in one horrible and oh so vivid flash of realisation; Santa is not GDPR compliant.

Santa works with personal data of EU citizens.
That's it - Santa is clearly not GDPR compliant.
