SPLENTO and the GDPR
SPLENTO AND THE UK GDPR
At Splento, we take privacy seriously and we are committed to continuing to comply with data protection laws both within the UK and the European Union.
What is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy in the European Union and the European Economic Area. It also addresses the transfer of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas.
It established a new framework for handling and protecting the personal data of EU-based residents and came into effect on May 25, 2018.
Personal data plays a huge part in society and the economy. It is essential that people have — and know they have — control and clarity over how their data is used and protected by any organisation they interact with, and that organisations are given clear guidelines to protect their personal data.
GDPR is a robust, strong data protection foundation for the benefit of all. You can rest assured that Splento’s platform is fully GDPR-compliant.
Splento continues to observe the regulations of the GDPR, as we operate and offer services within the European Union.
For the UK, the current legislation still applies, although it has now been incorporated into UK law as UK GDPR. As the extension to the Brexit transition period ends, there may be amendments to UK GDPR which will differ from its European counterpart. Splento will continue to be compliant with all appropriate regulations within each jurisdiction.
For now, when we refer to UK/GDPR we mean the regulations as they are in whichever jurisdiction applies.
How does Splento comply with the UK/GDPR?
- Trust is the foundation of our relationship with thousands of people and businesses around the world. We value the confidence you've put in us and take the responsibility of protecting your information seriously.
- Every product and service that Splento provides is fully compliant with current UK/GDPR regulations.
- We continue to monitor any and all legislation amendments and adapt our policies as regulation demands.
- You can know that Splento is always compliant with current UK/GDPR legislation.
Splento is committed to transparency, control and accountability.
- Transparency: Our Data Policy is the single consolidated place that maps out the ways in which we use data and process people's personal information.
- Control: We provide people with controls over how their data is used. To build on this, we're simplifying the design of our privacy settings in a new control centre. Privacy by design means that organisations handling personal data need to think about data protection when designing systems, not just review privacy implications after a product or process is developed. If you process a lot of data or deal with sensitive information, in many cases you'll also need to conduct data protection impact assessments to meet the privacy by design principle.
- Accountability: We are accountable for our privacy practices, which includes updating our existing compliance program to ensure that we are adequately documenting our UK/GDPR review and compliance.
What are your obligations under the GDPR and/or UK GDPR?
- It is important to remember that you, as the business customer and the data controller, have specific legal obligations under the UK/GDPR.
- You should be confident that any providers (data processors) which you work with have a highly robust approach to data protection, understand the obligations of the UK/GDPR, and are well prepared to meet them.
- Remember, however, that no provider can offer to “solve” UK/GDPR compliance for you.
With our current measures and continual improvements, we believe we are well placed to provide appropriate security measures for your data and earn your trust.
