At E-Agree , we're committed to supporting our customers to prepare for the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We're closely following its developing guidelines and are adapting our plans accordingly.
We commit to being GDPR-ready on or before May 25, 2018
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will set a new standard for how companies use and protect EU citizens’ data.
At E-Agree, we’ve been working hard to prepare for GDPR, to ensure that we fulfil its obligations and maintain our transparency about customer messaging and how we use data.
Here’s an overview of GDPR, and how we are preparing for it at E-Agree:
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is a new comprehensive data protection law that comes into effect on May 25, 2018. It will replace existing EU Data Protection law to strengthen the protection of “personal data” and the rights of the individual. It will be a single set of rules which govern the processing and monitoring of EU data.
Does it affect me?
Yes, most likely. If you hold or process the data of an any person in the EU, the GDPR will apply to you, whether you’re based in the EU or not.
How is E-Agree preparing for GDPR?
Our team has been working to define our GDPR roadmap. This is an overhaul of processes and data models to make sure we’re meeting our legal obligations and doing the best thing for our customers while still letting us move fast and scale.
Here are the main things we’ve been doing to ensure we’re setting up ourselves and our customers up to meet GDPR obligations:
E-Agree can help you meet your data portability requirements for GDPR. You can easily export all of your data linked to a Company and Contact and permanently delete all data linked to Company and Contact.
We’re updating our Data Processing Agreements (DPAs):
Strong data protection commitments are a key part of GDPR’s requirements. Our updated data processing agreement shares our privacy commitments and sets out the terms for E-Agree and our customers to meet GDPR requirements.
We’re coordinating with our vendors
We’re reviewing all our vendors, finding out about their GDPR plans and arranging similar GDPR-ready data processing agreements with them.
We’re taking security measures
Security is a priority for us. We have regular external audits & penetration tests. We’ve built a robust security framework over the past couple of years and review our internal access design to ensure the right people have access to the right level of customer data.
We’ll keep sharing information on our progress, and we’ll also help our customers and prospective customers be compliant.
