European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is enforceable from May 25th 2018. This legislation changes the landscape of regulated data protection law and the way that companies collect and use personal data.
As per the GDPR website gdpr.eu “The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.”
The GDPR not only applies to organizations located within the EU but it will also apply to organizations located outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to, or monitor the behavior of, EU data subjects. It applies to all companies processing and holding the personal data of data subjects residing in the
European Union, regardless of the company’s location.
Is Arma Compliant? Yes! All Arma services comply with this Regulation and we have taken steps to protect the personal data of our partners, including but not limited to:
Arma’s hosted solutions may be used for the collection, processing, and storage of personal data by Partners. In such cases, Arma acts as data ‘processor’. Arma Partners generally act as the data ‘controller’ determining what data to collect, how long it is stored and how it is used. Since each business is unique, Arma recommends that each Partner perform their own GDPR gap assessment.
This information does not provide, does not constitute, and should not be construed as, legal advice on GDPR. Arma partners should seek advice from their legal counsel to determine their legal obligations.
