Design and content elements have been reorganized, allowing you to be more productive than ever. Here's a summary of what's new:
  • A new custom theme builder
  • A more intuitive way to add content
  • More advanced design options
  • A new space dedicated to defining all the settings of your app

GDPR compliance

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a European parliament directive to oversee the collecting and processing of people's personal data. This directive applies to all entities that interact with people located in the EEA (European Economic Area). 

To be and allow you to be in compliance with this regulation, we've updated our General Terms of Service and added a new form in your back office so you can declare your Data Protection Officer.
