MachForm 9 Released. GDPR and Data Retention.

Howdy folks! ūüôā

Two weeks ago, we released MachForm 8, which add Apple Pay functionality to your form. Today, we have several important news that we would like to share with you.

I’m sure you’ve heard it a lot, our focus today will be on GDPR.



The new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect on May 25, 2018. We can assure you that MachForm Cloud will be in full compliance with GDPR by this date.

To help you understand what this means for you, and the steps we have taken to ensure the protection of personal data, we have created a new GDPR section on our website.

Please check it below for more details:

MachForm and GDPR Compliance

In addition, we have updated our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service to comply with the new requirements of GDPR.

The updated Privacy Policy and Terms of Service automatically comes into effect for all MachForm Cloud users on 25 May 2018. So your continued use of the MachForm Cloud from that date will be subject to it.



One of the¬†vital points in GDPR is Data Retention, and I’m happy to let you know that we’ve just released MachForm version 9 that will allow you to control the data retention of your form entries easily.
