On May 25, 2018, a new standard of data protection called GDPR will take effect across the EU and places several new obligations on companies that handle and track personal data.
The Komeer team is 100% committed to GDPR and fulfilling our obligations as well as helping you our customers and users understand and prepare for the new law.
What is GDPR?
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and is a new comprehensive data protection law in the EU that replaces existing laws to strengthen the protection of personal data and the rights of the individual. It will be a single set of rules, directly enforceable in each EU member state.
How we are preparing for GDPR at Komeer
We are updating our Key policies, Web Dashboard, Komeer Apps and service updates including:
- Reviewing our risk management and data management processes. This means that you can be sure all of our customer’s and user data is in safe hands
- We have made some product changes that allow our users to manage their data in a private, safe and secure way.
- Komeer is an EU based company. This means all of our EU customer data is stored within our servers in the EU and will not be transferred outside of the EU without consent
- We’re making sure that all the Komeer team is fully trained up to ensure that we are complying and handling all of our customer and user data within the requirements of GDPR
