Cloudflare and APPI compliance

Cloudflare is a privacy-first company. As such, the Act on the Protection of Personal Information (“APPI”) represents many steps we were already taking. We do not sell personal data we process, or use it for any purpose other than delivering our services. In addition, we let people access, correct, and delete their personal information, and give our customers control over the information passing through our network.
