General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
A Kinexit guide to the European privacy and data protection changes
The EU privacy and data protection (GDPR) is setting a new standard for how all companies use and protect EU citizen’s data. The regulation commenced in May 2018. Kinexit is fully committed to GDPR compliance and transparency in all the ways we handle the personal data of customers, professionals and businesses. We have also taken the necessary steps to ensure that our business associates and strategic partners share that commitment.
What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is a new, EU-wide privacy and data protection law. It replaces the EU’s current data protection legal framework from 1995 (commonly known as the “Data Protection Directive”). This calls for more granular privacy guardrails in an organization’s systems, more nuanced data protection agreements, and more consumer-friendly and detailed disclosures about an organization’s privacy and data protection practices.
What are your rights regarding data stored by Kinexit?
The Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires that individuals are given the right to control the data stored on them and affect how that data is used. Here is a summary of the key rights that concern users in Kinexit:
- The right to request access
- The right to object
