New Features and Enhancements

Recommendation Portal Enhancements

The following enhancement is available for the Recommendation Portal, Letters by Liaison, as part of Sprint 15.

1. General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Question

This enhancement applies to all CASs immediately.

The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals within the European Union. The GDPR question explains the information we collect and how we use their information. Users located in a European Union country, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway, or Switzerland must opt into our policies when creating an account. Users who already have an account will see a window when logging in to the application for the first time.
