Everything you need to know about DoneDone’s GDPR update

DoneDone and GDPR

The General Data Protection Legislation (GDPR) will come into effect on the 25th of May, 2018. Here’s what you need to know about how DoneDone processes customer data, and what we’re doing to ensure compliance.

What is GDPR and does it apply to me? Good question! GDPR, short for General Data Protection Regulation, is a new European data legislation that governs how companies around the world handle the personal data of EU citizens. If you’re not an EU citizen, the legislation doesn’t directly affect the way companies handle your data. However, we’ve made changes to DoneDone in order to protect everyone’s data to the standard of GDPR.

Here are some of DoneDone’s answers to GDPR questions.

Individual rights

DoneDone meets GDPR requirements for consensual data sharing

Whenever DoneDone collects personal data from its users, we ensure that we only collect data that is freely given. Whenever such data is collected, we explain clearly how the data will be used, stored, and secured. It’s our goal to share full detail in plain English so every DoneDone user understands the control they have over their personal information.

Whenever DoneDone asks you to submit personal data, you will be required to actively consent to the handling of your data. We never use your data based on inference or passive signals. You will be required to actively tick a box, click a link, or perform other actions that clearly state your approval for data processing.
