Shared Groups and GDPR Compliance
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is an important regulation enacted by the European Commission. The purpose of this regulation is to protect personal data of Europeans, stored by organizations and businesses.
Shared Groups is GDPR compliant. Therefore we have the responsibility to keep you informed regarding the data we have collected from you and how can you exercise your rights of access, rectification, portability restriction and deletion (or “right to be forgotten”).
If you are located in or do business in the European Union (EU), you need to follow new stricter customer data protection rules. Learn more how GDPR affects your organization.
Starting 25 May, 2018, GDPR will replace the Data Protection Directive, which has been in effect across the European Union (EU) for the past 20 years. The goal of GDPR is the enforcement of a standardized data protection law for the entire EU.
Why GDPR is important
To ensure that the protection of personal data remains a fundamental right for EU citizens, GDPR’s aim is to modernize outdated privacy laws. GDPR has the potential to impact any business that collects data in or from Europe.
If organizations are not GDPR compliant, significant fines of up to €20,000,000 or 4% of global annual turnover, whichever is greater, may be levied on them.
Sign the DPA
floreysoft makes it easy for our users to show that they use our services in a GDPR-compliant way. To make it convenient and easy, we provide a DPA (Data Processing Addendum), which is a self-serve and easy-to-execute document pre-signed by floreysoft. It only requires an electronic signature from the user.
Once the DPA is filled out and submitted, it will automatically be sent to us for final review. If it is correctly completed, the DPA will then become legally binding. You can provide the DPA to auditors to show that you use our services in a way that demonstrates your data is being processed in a way that meets your GDPR compliance obligation.
