More and more customers are requesting your "DPA" (data processing agreement) and/or "SCCs" (standard contractual clauses) and you have no idea what they're talking about... Then you realize the magnitude of these *legal* documents.
You make an honest attempt at reading up on this "General Data Protection Regulation" to see what all the fuzz is about. Only to realize that it's a massive law from the European Union and you're left wondering what the heck it all has to do with your lil SaaS company. 🤷🏻♀️
Then you also realize that the many articles about hefty fines aren't just scaremongering. Companies actually get fined, outside of the EU - and not only the Googles of the world. You read about Schrems II and start thinking about geoblocking next...
Worse, EU-based customers of companies from outside of the EU get fined for using their services, leading them to switching to "safer" EU-based vendors... This doesn't bode well for your retention goals.
The initial yawn at EU policy-makers first turned into a slight worry and by now you're close to panic mode. How are you going to get through 78 pages (not counting Recitals) of mind-numbing legalese, let alone understand it all. It's easy to get help, right?
So you set out to get some help. (No way you have time to wrap your head around all the requirements - you're already bootstrapping!) Only to discover that GDPR services are big business. No lack of offers to help! It just costs 30% of your ARR...
