Have you ever wondered how many online registrations forms have you filled over the years of using Internet? One way or another, the majority of trusted resources or software have its own guidelines on personal data protection. As most of the services, here at Unicheck we ask for your name, your email to sign you up as user and keep you on our records.
Yet there are websites that steadily require such details as your interests, marital status, etc. going as far as your political preferences. All this data draws up your personal digital footprint you regularly contribute to by using search engines, social media, filling registration forms and making transactions over the Internet.
Cloud technologies advancement compromise personal data protection made it easier to massively exchange private data which led to the cases of the misuse of personal information. The new set of data protection laws — GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) — that took over 4 years to be thoroughly developed is intended to reconsider what constitutes private data in the digital environment.
What is GDPR?
General Data Protection Regulation is aimed to substitute the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive with more advanced enforcement measures that align with emerging technologies and propel users’ consent and control as the fundamental principle of this regulation. The GDPR was approved in April 2016 by the EU Parliament and comes into force on 25 May 2018.
Companies running businesses that involve collection, use and storage of users data across the European Union will be subjected to GDPR.
Our GDPR Commitment Statement
In a nutshell, GDPR largely reverses the present practices of using personal data by companies, institutions and governmental entities.
As the law takes force on May 25, 2018 we will announce the respective measures we took to meet the requirements of the regulation. We bear liability to implement and follow the GDPR guidelines and ensure user awareness.
Unicheck is fully committed to the GDPR compliance, which will apply from May 25, 2018.
