The implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation ('GDPR') is taking place on 25 May 2018. Currently, the UK relies on the Data Protection Act 1998, but this will be replaced in its entirety by the GDPR. The GDPR sets down the privacy law rules when processing data of EU citizens.
The GDPR protects EU citizens’ fundamental right to privacy and the protection of personal data. It introduces robust requirements that will raise and harmonize standards for data protection, security, and compliance. The GDPR heralds a step-change in the value placed upon personal information.
This way, we make it easy for our customers to formalize and share with their stakeholders, including employees, customers and potential auditors, that they use Annotate in a way that meets GDPR data processing obligations. The GDPR Addendum, pre-signed by Annotate is a self-serve and easy-to-execute document that only requires a signature from the customer.
Nothing is changing about your current settings or how we process personal data as part of the services we supply to you. Rather, we have improved the way we describe our practices and the other information listed above. By continuing to use the Annotate services after 25 May 2018, you confirm that you understand and agree to the terms of the updated Policy.
