So what is GDPR?
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals within the European Union (EU). The main objective of the GDPR is to define the manner in which the privacy of EU citizens should be protected by unifying the data regulation rules of the EU’s member states.
What is personal data?
Personal data includes any personal information relating to a resident of the EU. Personal data can be anything from a name to a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social networking websites, medical information, a computer IP address, and so on.
How do we address the new guidelines?
As of today, our social impact mobile application “IVoluneerNow” does not host opportunities in EU regions. However, we may host opportunities for EU citizens and EU areas on our website. We approach these new guidelines on Privacy by Design – we have embedded privacy and the protection of information into our day to day activities, in the design of our system, which ensures that we handle your data in accordance with guidelines defined by the different data protection legislators.
Data Protection Officer (DPO) – we have appointed a DPO who is responsible to ensure that we handle your data in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
How do we handle data?
In the event that a data breach will occur in spite of our best efforts to prevent such an event, we will make sure to notify the relevant Data Protection Authority and our users of any breach without undue delay once we become aware of any breach.
