What is GDPR?

On May 25, 2018, the new European privacy regulation called The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came in to affect.

General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR")
The regulation is implemented in all local privacy laws across the entire EU and EEA region. It will apply to all companies selling to and storing personal information about citizens in Europe, including companies on other continents. It provides citizens of the EU and EEA with greater control over their personal data and assurances that their information is being securely protected across Europe.

What counts as personal data?
According to the GDPR directive, personal data is any information related to a person such as a name, a photo, an email address, bank details, updates on social networking websites, location details, medical information, or a computer IP address.

How can GetAccept help my company to comply with GDPR?

Register and collect consent
In many cases, a consent is needed in order to be able to process data according to the GDPR. The consent needs to be specific, clear and be freely given and documented. GetAccept can improve your organizations ability to control these consents with a simple acceptance workflow. eSigning therefore makes it possible to lawfully process personal data.

Data Processing Agreement (DPA)
The GDPR states specific demands for agreements between Data Controllers and their Data Processors that are used to process the personal data that they are in control of. These agreements are called Data Processing Agreements and should always be handled if data is shared with third parties. GetAccept can simplify the process of maintaining, updating and signing these contracts and therefore accelerating your routines with your vendors. eSigning gives full visibility on the activities during the signing process and automatic reminders will help you to speed up the process.
