Protection of your data

GDPR compliance

The GDPR’s updated specifications are significant, and our organization has changed our processes, and contractual duties to help customers comply with the regulations. Measures we have implemented include:

  • Advances in our security foundation and certifications
  • Updates to appropriate contractual terms
  • Support for global data transfers by supporting our Privacy Shield self-certification
  • Allowing information portability and records management tools

We likewise watch the direction around GDPR agreement from privacy-related governing parties and modernize our product characteristics and contractual duties respectively. We’ll present you with frequent updates on these matters.

Guarding our users’ information is essential to us.

International data transfers

To comply with EU data security regulations around global information transfer mechanisms, we certify under the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield and the E.U.-U.S. Privacy Shield. These structures were formed to set a way for organizations to comply with data protection obligations like transferring data from the US to the EU.

Also, we offer European Union Model Clauses, also known as Standard Contractual Clauses, to meet capacity and safety conditions for our users who operate in the EU.
