GDPR Compliance in GrabStar
What is GDPR?
The GDPR is a comprehensive data protection law that came into effect on May 25, 2018. It replaced existing EU law to strengthen the protection of “personal data” and the rights of the individual. It’s a single set of rules which governs the processing and monitoring of EU data.
Does it affect me?
Yes, most likely. If you hold or process the data of any person in the EU, the GDPR will apply to you, whether you’re based in the EU or not.
How GrabStar prepared for GDPR
Our teams worked hard to ensure we complied with GDPR. This was a massive overhaul of processes and data models to make sure we met our legal obligations and did the best thing for our customers while still letting us move fast, scale, and build great products.
Here are the main things we did:
Strong data protection commitments are a key part of GDPR’s requirements. Our updated data processing agreement shares our privacy commitments and sets out the terms for GrabStar and our customers to meet GDPR requirements. This is available for customers to sign upon request.
If you are a resident in the European Economic Area, we may transfer your Personal Information to affiliated entities, we make use of the European Commission-approved standard contractual data protection clauses, binding corporate rules, or other appropriate legal mechanisms to safeguard the transfer
We have a dedicated Data Protection Officer to oversee and advise on our data management. Get in touch by emailing [email protected]
Security is a priority for us. We have regular external audits, pen tests, and bug bounties. We’ve built a robust security framework, achieving International Compliance standards, and reviewed our internal access design to ensure the right people have access to the right level of customer data.
