Like many other companies, databrackets has reviewed its company-wide compliance strategy with respect to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came in to effect from 25th May 2018.

In doing so, databrackets completed an audit of all data flowing in and out of our organization, either in our capacity as a Data Controller or as a Data Processor.

As a result, we have reviewed and updated our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy; ensured we obtain consent before collecting personal data of our customers; provide access to that data, and provide the right to be forgotten in accordance with our Privacy Policy. We have either signed Data Processing Addendums with relevant third-party service providers or moved away from non-compliant providers.

databrackets now offers a GDPR compliant Data Processing Addendum to our standard License Agreement so that customers can use our services in a GDPR compliant manner and we have executed Data Processing Addendums with our sub-processors.

We are committed to a process of continual improvement of our privacy and security measures; notifying regulators of personal data breaches and promptly communicating any such breaches to our customers.
