With OneTrust Assessment Automation, Data Mapping, Incident & Breach Response, Vendor Risk Management and Cookie Consent and Website Scanning, Migros centralized and operationalized their GDPR privacy program, allowing them to continue to operate Switzerland’s largest customer loyalty program and centralize their approach to privacy. As Migros looks beyond the GDPR into other global privacy laws such as the ePrivacy Regulation and the Swiss Data Protection Act, they plan to expand their use of OneTrust’s modules and are in the process of implementing OneTrust’s Data Subject Rights Management module.

“What we really like about OneTrust is it’s developing so fast, there are new releases every few weeks,” said Matthias Glatthaar, Head Data Privacy and Digital at Migros. “The platform is adapting and changing to not only keep up with the global privacy landscape, but also to adapt to what the Migros team needs specifically, something that is incredibly unique for a platform of this size and scale.”

“Migros is a great example of a company that is keeping the legacy of their customer loyalty at the forefront, while still prioritizing data protection efforts,” said Kabir Barday, OneTrust CEO and Fellow of Information Privacy (FIP). “We are proud to partner with a company that is made up of such a diverse group of subsidiaries, and we look forward to continuing to grow alongside them as their privacy program evolves and expands.”
