AquaFold’s GDPR Commitment

AquaFold, Inc. (“AquaFold”) is committed to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), which will go into effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR regulation contains the most significant changes to European data privacy legislation in the last 20 years. It is designed to give European Union (“EU”) citizens more control over their data and seeks to unify a number of existing privacy and security laws under one comprehensive law. The GDPR applies to all companies that do business with EU citizens or process data of EU citizens regardless of the location of the company that is processing such data. To that end, the GDPR applies to AquaFold.

Our customers can trust that AquaFold has made GDPR a priority and has devoted significant and strategic resources toward our efforts to adhere with GDPR.

Like many other global software companies, AquaFold is in the process of rolling out its company-wide GDPR policy program starting on May 25, 2018. AquaFold appreciates that its customers have requirements under the GDPR, which are directly impacted by their use of AquaFold’s products and services, and AquaFold is committed to helping its customers fulfill their requirements under the GDPR and local law.

AquaFold’s customers will typically act as the data controller for any personal data they provide to AquaFold in connection with their use of our products and services. The data controller determines the purposes and means of processing personal data, while the data processor processes data on behalf of the data controller. AquaFold is a data processor and processes personal data on behalf of the data controller when the controller is using AquaFold’s product and services.

Data controllers (e.g. AquaFold’s customers) are responsible for implementing appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure and demonstrate that any data processing is performed with GDPR in mind. Our customers’ obligations as data controller relate to principles such as fairness and transparency, purpose limitation, lawfulness, data minimization, and accuracy, as well as fulfilling data subject’s (e.g. the customer clients of our customers) rights with respect to their data.

AquaFold will keep you informed through its website about its policy with the GDPR requirements; however, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our legal department at legal@aquafold.com
