GDPR & The Burn-In

WHAT IS GDPR?

As you may have heard, the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) recently went into effect on May 25, 2018, in the European Union. The GDPR applies to every company that processes EU citizens’ PII (Personally Identifiable Information). This new law prioritizes the importance of the protection and privacy of your personal information in several key areas.

First, Sourceability (of which The Burn-In belongs to as a product) provides the ability to consent to data collection in an easily accessible format. At Sourceability, we store your personal contact information—full name, company, company address, email address and phone number—as well as data concerned with our performance of contract which in part captures financial data for banking purposes.

Second, Sourceability supplies the opportunity to request your data. We display the data currently held under your user and/or business entity in a user-friendly format.

Third, Sourceability presents the option to have all data we have collected, deleted on request. If you make this request (email [email protected]), we will comply without undue delay except as required by other laws. For example, some financial data may not be deleted if it is required for tax records.

For more information, an overview of the EU GDPR regulations can be found here.

OUR COMMITMENT

We stand by the new European Union policy, giving our clients, vendors, and users a greater say in what happens with their data. Please review the summary of updates and steps we have taken:

  • Transparency of Data—We have enhanced our website for increased readability behind our data access processes. Sourceability has made the path to your data easily available per request.
  • Data Security—We implement high redundancy amongst our servers and leverage Azure’s Information Protection to identify personal data, monitor access, and govern security protocols.
  • Compliance & Preparation—Outside of following ISO 9001-2008 standards, we are partnered with a third-party EU based firm for GDPR alignment.
