The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been a significant piece of the privacy landscape since 2018, and Opsenic is here to support you in meeting its requirements.
GDPR is setting the standard for how organizations collect, use, and protect EU citizens’ personal information. With the growing concern for data safety, this law is designed to foster public confidence in data privacy.
Whether or not your organization is based in the EU, all businesses that control or process personal information of EU citizens must do so in accordance with GDPR requirements.
As an employer, this means that you are responsible for ensuring that the personal information of your EU citizen employees is processed in accordance with GDPR requirements.
Because of this, you are also responsible for ensuring that any workplace service providers that you use will process the personal information of your EU citizen employees in accordance with GDPR requirements.
Opsenic is committed to supporting you in ensuring that your use of our workplace tool meets GDPR requirements.
Here are some of the measures that Opsenic has put in place to reflect that commitment:
Opsenic’s contractual terms reflect GDPR requirements
Opsenic has prepared a Data Processing Addendum that contains the GDPR contractual requirements. Where applicable, this Data Processing Addendum is incorporated into our Terms of Service. Our contractual commitments relevant to GDPR are that:
Opsenic will continue to improve its security infrastructures
Opsenic is committed to maintaining appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your employees’ personal information in line with GDPR requirements.Our commitments to maintaining our security measures are as follows:
Opsenic complies with GDPR international data transfer mechanisms
GDPR does not require personal information of EU citizens to be stored in the EU. GDPR does, however, require transfers of EU citizens’ personal information outside of the EU to comply with certain international data transfer standards. One of these standards is that prior to transferring an EU citizen’s personal information to a third country, the European Commission must have decided that the third country ensures an adequate level of protection. Opsenic is committed to ensuring that all transfers of your employees’ personal information are and will be in compliance with the required international data transfer standards. Opsenic is located in USA and is subject to USA privacy laws. This is great, because the European Commission has included USA in its list of countries recognized as providing adequate protection.
As your data processor, Opsenic transfers your employees’ personal information to only one third-party subprocessor — data center provider (Google Cloud). Opsenic has Standard Contractual Clauses in place with each of its subprocessors with whom we work continuously to meet privacy and security standards and improve technical and organizational safeguards.
