GDPR Statement

Data Technology ‘s Corporate GDPR Statement

 

 

In May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the existing 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (European Directive 95/46/EC).

 

Data Technology currently complies with applicable data protection regulations and is committed to GDPR compliance across its relevant services when the GDPR takes effect May 25, 2018. Data Technology has a dedicated internal team made up of cross-functional stakeholders overseeing Data Technology ‘s GDPR readiness. Data Technology ‘s ongoing compliance efforts include:

 

 

Assessment

 

Data Technology is currently reviewing where and how our relevant teams collect, use, store and dispose of personal data and updating policies, standards, governance and documentation as needed.

 

Contractual Commitments

 

Working in conjunction with our partners and customers, Data Technology is reviewing our contractual commitments and updating as needed to directly address GDPR requirements. In the coming weeks, Data Technology will release a Data Processing Addendum with provisions to assist our partners and customers with their GDPR compliance. Data Technology is also reviewing its supplier contracts to ensure GDPR compliance throughout its supply chain.

 

Employee Training and Awareness

 

All Data Technology employees must complete data privacy and security training. Data Technology will supplement existing training modules with GDPR-specific content. In addition to these training requirements, Data Technology conducts ongoing awareness initiatives on a variety of topics, including data protection, security and privacy.

 

Data Technology Partners and Customers

 

Compliance with the GDPR requires a partnership between Data Technology and our partners and customers in their use of applicable Data Technology services. In this context, Data Technology generally will act as a data processor and our partners and customers generally will act as data controllers. Working together, we hope to explore opportunities within our relevant service offerings to assist our partners and customers meet their GDPR obligations. In the meantime, Data Technology encourages partners and customers to independently familiarize themselves with the GDPR.
