What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?
If you’re wondering what GDPR is (and who it applies to), you’re not alone. This page is designed to help you understand exactly how it will affect you. As you read, you’ll find all of the resources Terryberry has created and everything you need to understand GDPR. Let’s start with a definition.
General Data Protection Regulation:
A European regulation taking effect May 25, 2018, affecting the protection of data by “controllers,” those who determine the means and purposes of data processing and “processors,” those who handle data on behalf of controllers.
Many of Terryberry’s customers will fall into the “controller” category as they are collecting and using personal data about their employees. And since Terryberry falls under the “processor” category, we are required by the GDPR to treat our customers’ data as if it were our own.
Our privacy team has analyzed the requirements of the GDPR and has ensured our policies, procedures, contracts and platform features align with the GDPR.
Data security and privacy are top priorities for Terryberry. To demonstrate our dedication to security and privacy, we host our web applications with an ISO 27001 / SOC 2 Type 2 hosting provider, and we are currently in compliance with the EU/US Privacy Shield framework.
We have also undergone a full readiness assessment from an independent third party of our privacy controls against the articles of GDPR. The report for this assessment is available under NDA.
Furthermore we are now members of the Privacy Shield Framework which provides companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States.
This means that our 360 Recognition Platform is now fully compliant with GDPR and Data Protection Law and you can be safe in the knowledge that your employees’ data will be secure and treated in the right way when they use our platform, mobile app or any other of our services.
