GDPR and updates to our privacy policy

Hi from UAE Shipping Directory!

You’ve probably gotten an awful lot of emails over the past few weeks about privacy policy updates due to the GDPR.

On Friday, May 25th, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect. In case you haven’t heard of it before, according to Wikipedia, this European Union regulation “aims primarily to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.”

We agree with the philosophy behind the GDPR - companies should be transparent about what data they collect and why they collect it, and you should be in control of what happens with your personal data.

We’ve built UAE Shipping Directory with that philosophy in mind from the beginning.

As part of getting ready for the GDPR, we’ve made some clarifications to our privacy policy, provided more information about how we use cookies, put options to subscribe and unsubscribe from our newsletters in more places, and clarified some internal procedures.

Here’s our updated Privacy Policy. This policy provides information about what data we collect and what we do with that data. It also includes information about how to get access to, request deletion of, or modify your data. By continuing to use the service, you accept the terms of the new Privacy Policy, so please read it.

Here’s a new cookie statement that describes how we use cookies on our various sites.

And you can also find our Legal Notice and Terms of Service (TOS) here.

Finally, if you’re a business customer and you need a copy of our Data Processing Addendum, please reach out to our support team at

Sincerely yours,

UAE Shipping Directory Team
