The General Data Protection Legislation (GDPR) will come into effect on the 25th of May 2018. Here’s what you need to know about how Space66 processes customer data, and what we’re doing to ensure compliance.

What is GDPR and does it apply to me? Good question!

GDPR, short for General Data Protection Regulation, is a new European data legislation that governs how companies around the world handle the personal data of EU citizens. If you’re not an EU citizen, the legislation doesn’t directly affect the way companies handle your data. However, we’ve made changes to Space66 in order to protect everyone’s data to the standard of GDPR.

Individual rights

Space66 meets GDPR requirements for consensual data sharing


Whenever we collect personal data from our users, we ensure that we only collect data that is freely given. Whenever such data is collected, we explain clearly how the data will be used, stored, and secured. It’s our goal to share full detail in plain English so every user understands the control they have over their personal information.


Whenever Space66 asks you to submit personal data, you will be required to actively consent to the handling of your data. We never use your data based on inference or passive signals. You will be required to actively tick a box, click a link, or perform other actions that clearly state your approval for data processing.

 

What data does Space66 collect?


Space66 collects the data that you submit on our websites, namely your email address and first and last names. We do not ask for sensitive identification information (e.g. national identification number)


How Space66 uses your personal data

GDPR can be a long read. That’s why we’re answering some of your most common questions in simple, plain language. If you do want more detail, you can read about the security measures we have in place below. We take your privacy very seriously – here are some of the ways how:

Simply, no. But in the event that we do, we will seek permission and disclose the partners we work with and the nature of data that is exchanged in terms for EU Customers documented below.


How does Space66 ensure that external contractors respect the data protection and privacy of its customers?


We do not allow any external contractors access to our customer private personal data.
