The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is effective from 25 May 2018. The GDPR aims to strengthen the security and protection of personal data in the EU and will replace the European Privacy Directive and national legislations accordingly.
General Data Protection Regulation & Microscope's Commitment
Accountability: We are committed to the principles of the GDPR by adopting the concept of ‘data privacy by design’ within our operational model. We remain accountable by having detailed policies and systems in place as well as a Data Protection Officer to oversee our overall compliance to data protection regulations including the management of access rights requests. Our policies are regularly reviewed and updated, and our staff are periodically trained on data protection and security throughout the year.
Transparency, Fairness and Lawfulness: We process data with data subjects’ interests in mind and ensure that we approach processing activities with transparency to maintain fairness in what we do. This way we can be sure that we are processing data lawfully. We have a robust process in place to allow us to deal efficient with any access requests we may receive.
