Loops and GDPR
Technological development has accelerated in recent years, and we now spend much of our waking hours online. As online services want more information from you as a user, it becomes important to understand how your personal data is used and what rights you have. GDPR gives you greater rights, and places very high demands on companies that provide services and how subcontractors process personal data.
The previous Personal Data Act took the handling of personal data very seriously. In the educational context, we saw it not least in the dialogue that municipalities have pursued with large cloud service providers regarding the use of the services in classroom practice. However, the handling of personal data looked different in the EU member states, and the rapid development of technology justified an EU-wide legislation for the handling of personal data.
How does it affect Loops?
We welcome the GDPR and the requirements placed on us as a service provider. For us, it has always been obvious to handle your personal data with the utmost seriousness and care, just as we ourselves expect to be processed. We ask for your consent to save information you give us, and you always have the right to have your data exported and / or deleted if you want to exercise the right to be forgotten. You should feel completely safe in your relationship with us. Therefore, through focused work, we have managed to be GDPR compliant from the beginning of May 2018.
n concrete terms, GDPR involves both organizational and technical measures on our part. From a technical perspective, we have reviewed what data we store and where it is stored to be able to ensure that everything is managed correctly. We have also updated our systems to be able to offer opportunities for data export and deletion of personal data. Should the accident occur, we have also developed strict routines for incident management and communication. All in order to minimize the consequences of a possible incident with as clear and immediate information as possible.
GDPR also gives you the right to be informed about / when we hire new subcontractors who handle personal data, or when we end our relationship with existing subcontractors. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to receive an automatic notice when we make changes.
P.S. We will never use this email for anything other than update information about our assistants. You can always contact us at email@example.com if you want your email deleted or use the link at the bottom of each email.
