What is GDPR?
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) protects personal data in Europe since 25 May 2018 and replaces the data protection directive of 1995. Personal data includes an individual's name, phone number and address and such digital information as GPS locations, habits and usernames. Anyone who has access to this data is responsible for its protection.
Data protection rules
- Users can request erasure of their personal data;
- Businesses must have consent from individuals for collecting and processing their data;
- In case of a data breach, the regulator and users must be informed within 72 hours;
- Focus on data protection from the beginning of the project and throughout its life cycle;
- Large enterprises have to employ a data protection officer.
At Swissborg, we respect and follow these rules, because we believe that everyone has the right to know that their personal data is safe and secure.
