Bendani Software GDPR IconWe are excited to announce that we comply with the enforced European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

So, why are we sharing this with you?

If you provide software that engages European users, the GDPR regulations will require that you keep your European customers’ data protected, per the standards set in GDPR. Even if you don’t have an office or other presence in Europe, this still applies.

The GDPR will apply in all EU member states starting May 25, 2018. It was formalized on May 25, 2016, after all parts of the EU agreed to the final text. But the law will apply to all businesses and organizations on May 25, 2018.

All companies that transfer personal data with EU residents will need to comply with the GDPR. The regulations outline controllers and processors of data. A data controller states how and why personal data is processed, while a processor is the party doing the actual processing of the data. Even if controllers and processors are based outside the EU, the GDPR will still apply to them so long as they are dealing with personal data belonging to EU residents.

Bendani Software has put in place processes and procedures to comply with the various provisions of GDPR – data protection addendum, data deletion, data retention, and Pseudonymation / anonymization.
