What Do the GDPR and CCPA Data Privacy Regulations Mean for Software License Management?

The GDPR went into effect May 25, 2018 and the CCPA went into effect January 1, 2020.  What you need to know.

GDPR white paper-1


The European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) are part of a new global regulatory trend towards more complete definitions of what personal information (PI) entails, more stringent requirements for consent to use data and how it is being used, enhanced consumer rights regarding control over data collection, and greater accountability and liability for those collecting, controlling, and processing personal data.

These trends are very relevant to the use of software license compliance technologies, which may collect usage data that enables software providers to determine if their products are being used in compliance with license agreements. While data privacy regulations certainly don’t prohibit the use of license compliance software, collecting and leveraging personal data through these tools must be managed in a way that minimizes the risk of noncompliance with the new regulations.
