If you saw our recent trade show recap, or attended the shows yourself, you know that the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was a hot topic. As well it should be – the GDPR goes into effect May 25th of this year and will impact the way EU merchants, and all businesses that process EU customer data, do business going forward.

Segpay is attending LALEXPO, one of the biggest trade shows in South America, February 19-21 in Cali, Colombia. LALEXPO brings together many of the region’s major webcam companies, a fast-growing segment of Segpay merchants, and of online subscription services in general.
