GDPR

What is the GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new European privacy law that went into effect on 25 May 2018. 

The GDPR puts an emphasis on the security of personal information and has been created to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe. It aims to give citizens control over their data and therefore governs the way in which businesses collect, use and share information about individuals.

Who does the GDPR apply to?

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. It also applies to organisations located outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to, or monitor the behaviour of, EU data subjects. 

What has Wallscope done to comply with GDPR?

We have reviewed the data controlled by clients which is held on our servers as well as our own data, products and services, customer terms and privacy policy.

What is Wallscope’s role under the GDPR?

We act as both a Data Processor and a Data Controller under the GDPR.

Wallscope as Data Processor: Wallscope is the Data Processor for clients who use our server-based services. Our processing is restricted to machine-based IP detection and log creation. 

Wallscope as Data Controller: We act as Data Controller for customer information we collect to provide our products and services and to provide timely customer support. This customer information includes things such as customer name and contact information.
