On May 25th 2018, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect for all entities processing the data of EU citizens. This new set of laws is aimed at enhancing the protection of EU citizens’ personal data, and increasing the duties of organizations to deal with that data in clear and secure ways.
SightCall is no stranger to the security of customer information. From the inception of our company, the collection, treatment, protection and lifecycle of personal data has been a top priority. Out of respect for our customers, it has always been SightCall policy to store only the data that is required in order to operate our service.
Over the past year, we have further updated our policies to achieve full GDPR compliance. This change affects how users give consent to terms and conditions, in accordance with GDPR standards, and provides the necessary tools to allow any users to have their personal data removed upon request.
SightCall has also completed a successful, independent audit by KirkpatrickPrice to achieve SOC2 Type II Certification. “SightCall delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on SightCall’s controls,” stated Joseph Kirkpatrick, Managing Partner with KirkpatrickPrice.
SightCall customers can find further documentation about GDPR within the SightCall Admin Portal.
