What is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation(“GDPR”) is a new European privacy regulation which will replace the currentEU Data Protection Directive (“Directive 95/46/EC”). The GDPR aims to strengthen the security and protection of personal data in the EU and harmonize EU data protection law.
To whom does the GDPR apply?
The GDPR applies to all organizations operating in the EU and processing “personal identifiable data” of EU residents. Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person
What implications does GDPR have for organizations?
If a company collects, transmits, hosts or analyzes personal data of EU citizens, GDPR requires the company to use third-party data processors who guarantee their ability to implement the technical and organizational requirements of the GDPR.
PureClarity guarantee that customers can:
- Respond to requests from data subjects to correct, amend or delete personal data.
- Be made aware of and report personal data breaches to relevant supervisory authorities and data subjects in accordance with GDPR timeframes.
- Demonstrate their compliance with the GDPR as pertaining to PureClarity’s Services.
