The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union and the European Economic Area. It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU and EEA. The GDPR 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. The regulation became effective and enforceable on the 25th May 2018.
Our commitment: Intellitix is fully committed to compliance with the GDPR.
Intellitix has been dedicated resources toward ensuring compliance with the GDPR since the announcement of the regulation. We did this because we value our customers (and their customers) rights to privacy.
We store all data in accordance with GDPR either in the EU or in an approved location as determined by the European Commission.
Here’s a condensed version of our GDPR Roadmap and steps taken on our journey:
Intellitix has also engaged with numerous attorneys and professionals on our approach. We felt this was and will be very important because the legislation is so new and far reaching.
We have taken many steps across the entire company to ensure our compliance with the GDPR. We have taken steps to ensure improved anonymization of data where required and possible, and protection of data as per the GDPR. We have created internal processes to our operations and delivery to ensure compliance with the regulation.
Based on the research conducted by both our inside and outside counsels we are confident these changes will address the requirements of the GDPR.
There are two things that you might need to do depending on your situation and jurisdiction. Below are some changes that we can foresee that might affect you as a result of using Intellitix:
The General Data Protection Act (GDPR) is considered to be the most significant piece of European data protection legislation to be introduced in the European Union (EU) in 20 years and will replace the the 1995 Data Protection Directive.
The GDPR regulates the processing of personal data about individuals in the European Union including its collection, storage, transfer or use. Importantly, under the GDPR, the concept of “personal data” is very broad and covers any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual (also called a “data subject”).
It gives data subjects more rights and control over their data by regulating how companies should handle and store the personal data they collect. The GDPR also raises the stakes for compliance by increasing enforcement and imposing greater fines should the provisions of the GDPR be breached.
The GDPR enhances EU individuals’ privacy rights and places significantly enhanced obligations on organizations handling data.
In summary, here are some of the key changes to come into effect with the upcoming GDPR:
If you are a company outside the EU, you should still be aware of this. The provisions of the GDPR apply to any organization that processes personal data of individuals in the European Union, including tracking their online activities, regardless of whether the organization has a physical presence in the EU.
