Frameworks and Regulations We Support

Frequently Asked Questions

What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for the General Data Protection Regulation. It protects the citizens of the European Union and went into effect in May of 2018. The GDPR ensures that companies are held accountable for keeping personal information safe. Although this law was created in the European Union to protect the data of its citizens it affects companies that deal with worldwide business and handle data around the world. The GDPR set new standards for global privacy and initiated a wave of similar laws globally.

What is data protection by design and default?

This principle within the GDPR institutes Privacy by Design as a primary element of data protection in which technologies are designed to include privacy as a default function rather than an option. In this way, when a user accesses a website or service, the default is that a data subject’s utmost privacy remains intact throughout the lifecycle of the data processing venture.

What is the Data Processor?

The data processor under the GDPR simply is the processor of the data that the Data Controller provides them. The data processor is a third party the controller chose to work with and to process the data, and they do not own the data and they do not control the data.

Does the GDPR apply to my business?

The GDPR regulates what companies can do with the data they collect and process about European citizens. These regulations apply to any business (including those based in the US and Canada) that stores or processes the data of European citizens. The most important feature of this privacy law is that it gives users more rights and control over what your business does with their data and whether they wish to consent to the collection of their data by your business.

What is Pseudonymization?

Under GDPR, “pseudonymization” is a process required for all stored data. Pseudonymisation is the process that transforms how data is stored in a way that will make the final data not attributable to a specific data subject (person or company) without using any additional information. Pseudonymisation is an alternative to complete data anonymization. An example of pseudonymization is encryption.

What is the Data Controller?

As the title suggests, the Data Controller is in charge of data and they have the most responsibility in regards to the protection of privacy and the rights of “Data Subjects”. The controller is also the collector of data.

Under GDPR, the controller must disclose any and all data collection, disclose the lawful basis for and the purpose for data processing. They are also required to state the timeframe for data processing. They are also responsible to state the timeframe for data retention. Another requirement for controllers is that they must disclose if the data collected is being shared with any third parties or outside of the EEA.
