General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
What is GDPR?
The General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years. To make it shorter (and easier to understand): the GDPR replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and it is designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.
Date of effectiveness: 25 May 2018 – at which time those organizations in non-compliance may face heavy fines.

Thai Containers Group co., ltd. uses visitor analytics to improve user experience. Visitor Analytics is a simple website analytics service which measures the traffic and visitors' general details of the customers' websites. Collecting these statistics, a website can make their visitors' experience better (e.g. which pages they visit and when, where they are approximately located, where does a user land first or if they are coming from a specific referral).
Basically, as a website owner using Visitor Analytics, we are using cookies to collect data about visitors' device type and screen size, approximate location, browser, OS, IPs, page visits, bounce rate, conversions and popular content on the website. All this data is pseudonymized and Visitor Analytics will never use the collected data to identify individual users or to match it with additional information on an individual user. Each visitor has control over the cookies placement.
