GDPR: We Updated Our Privacy Policy

No comments

On May 25, 2018, the most significant piece of European data protection legislation to be introduced in 20 years will come into force when the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the 1995 Data Protection Directive. We know that preparing for this regulatory change is a priority for many of our customers and it is equally a priority for us. That is why we are already busy making our survey tool fully GDPR compliant. Today, we are updating our privacy policy which has been specifically adjusted to reflect the new regulation.

The updated privacy policy takes effect immediately for new users and on December 1, 2017 for existing users.

FAQ

Why are you rolling out an updated privacy policy now rather than wait until May 25, 2018?
CheckMarket is committed to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance and to helping its customers with their own compliance journey. We are rolling out this updated version well in advance to facilitate your compliance assessment and GDPR readiness when using CheckMarket.

My organization is not established in the EU, does the GDPR still apply to us?
Yes, it does if you process personal data of EU citizens. For instance, conducting surveys and having respondents from the EU.

Will I need to provide any information to CheckMarket before the GDPR comes into force?
The GDPR requires CheckMarket to maintain records of certain information, including the contact details of your EU representative (if your organization is not established in the EU) and Data Protection Officer, where applicable. We’ll be in touch to provide further instructions on how to provide this information in the coming months.

If you have any questions about the updated privacy policy, please email us at legal@checkmarket.com.
