GDPR compliance with Preservica
Preservica products and operations help ensure you meet your GDPR obligations.
Processing personal data after Brexit
From 11pm on December 31st 2020, Preservica extended our existing conformance to EU-GDPR requirements, to include UK-GDPR, ensuring Preservica continues to meet our data protection obligations.
From June 28, 2021, the European Commission adopted data adequacy for the UK. Consequently, personal data can now flow freely between the European Union and the United Kingdom. Preservica has appointed Vivenics Consultancy BV to act as EU GDPR representative.
Preservica meets its obligations as a ‘processor’ for customers that are ‘controllers’ of personal data
Preservica cloud products and operations meet the processor requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) helping our customers protect the rights of their data subjects.
It’s important to note that although the GDPR is an EU regulation it may still apply to any organization which is a controller of personal data for an EU data subject, even if that organization is outside of the EU.
Preservica helps to ensure you meet your GDPR obligations and preserve your valuable digital information for the long-term.
