The team at ArborBridge is hard at work ensuring that our practices are GDPR-compliant. GDPR, or the General Data Protection Regulation, goes into effect on May 25, 2018. It is a new set of laws aimed at enhancing the protection of EU citizens’ personal data and increasing the obligations of organizations to deal with that data in transparent and secure ways. The GDPR applies not only to EU-based businesses, but also to any business that stores or processes data of EU citizens.
We want you to know that we are fully committed to complying with the requirements of the GDPR and place utmost importance on the privacy of your personal data.
Here's what you, as an ArborBridge client, need to know about the GDPR and your rights.
When you are about to submit your personal information, we will ensure that you have given your full consent to disclose that data. We are also required to provide evidence that our processes are compliant and followed in each case.
Right to be forgotten (or erasure)
This allows you to request that personal data be erased when it is no longer needed.
Right to data portability
This allows you to demand a copy of your data in a common format.
“Right to be forgotten (or erasure)” and “Right to data portability” both make it easier for you to request that any information stored should be deleted or that information that has been collected should be shared with them.
You have the right to request access to your data. The timescale for processing an access request is a 30-day period.
