Our GDPR CommitmentUpdated on 29th June 2018
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provides legislation on all organizations generating and processing personal data related to EU-citizens, also known as data subjects. The new law will come into effect on 25th May 2018.
This is a great legal framework to put data subjects’ rights first and foremost, giving them more control and rights over their personal data. These new rights and controls include:
being aware of the transfer of your data from one system to another
knowing what data has been collected and how it will be used
the right to make changes to inaccurately stored data
the right to withdraw your consent and request personal data deletion
the choice to actively consent or not, fully or partially
Our role as a technology provider
As a technology provider, we are data processors, while our clients take on the role as data controllers. Clients choose to work with our technology to track and manage the effectiveness of their marketing activities and partners, thereby allowing us to collect data on the basis of legitimate interest and process the data based on contractual obligation.
In addition, we have taken on the following measures to ensure transparency in our efforts to GDPR compliance:
Data protection officer
We have contacted all our mailing list recipients to renew their consent to receiving newsletters.
Website cookie update
We have adjusted our cookie acceptance settings on our website to enable an easier opt-in and out of cookie tracking.
In addition to the current enhancements, streamlining of non-business-critical data, as well as enhanced user account security, Ingenious Technologies is continuously working to maintain a high standard of data privacy and security within our software development.
We are actively working on formally documenting our processes concerning data collection, and to set procedures in place to best cater to your rights to access, edit and delete personally identifiable data in a timely manner.
Our Client team is available to address the concerns of clients, and support them in ensuring their compliance to GDPR whilst using the marketing platform.
