We created this GDPR section on our website to go over what GDPR means for you and the steps we’ve taken to ensure the protection of your privacy
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on 25 May 2018 and places new obligations on organizations based in the EEA or which hold or process personally identifiable information (PII) about EU residents.
For the purpose of processing personal data, Qualipro may engage data processors and/or, at its sole discretion, hire other persons to perform certain functions on behalf of Qualipro. In such cases, Qualipro shall take necessary measures to ensure that such data is processed by the personal data processors in accordance with the instructions of Qualipro and applicable legislation. Qualipro shall also require the personal data processors to implement appropriate measures for the security of personal data. In such cases, Qualipro shall ensure that such persons will be subject to the non-disclosure obligation and will not be able to use this information for any other purpose, except to the extent necessary to perform the functions assigned to them.
GDPR Data Protection
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was enacted by the European Union to deepen and harmonize personal data protection regulations. Now in effect as of May 25, 2018, it is a comprehensive and clear set of guidelines that acknowledges that different “flavors” of personal data require different levels of protection.
GDPR applies to all businesses irrespective of the region or jurisdiction, no matter where they are based, who collect and process personal data on EU residents. Non-EU companies have to appoint a GDPR representative and will be liable for all fines and sanctions
Some of the key requirements of the GDPR are:
- Consent: Organizations must get consent to collect personal data, with the level of consent varying according to the type of personal data being collected.
- Data minimization: Responding to years of gratuitous collection of personal data by apps, with no clear purpose in mind, the GDPR stipulates that organizations can only collect personal data that is clearly related to a well-defined business objective. If an organization gathers personal data for one purpose but then decides it wants to use it for another purposes (such as consumer profiling), that could be considered non-compliance.
- Individual rights: Another key feature of the GDPR is the very clear rights that it gives data subjects (i.e., the individuals whose personal data is being collected) to understand why their data is being collected and how it is being processed. They have the right to object, to correct—and they have the right to be erased/forgotten. They also have the right to be notified (individually) if their personal data has been breached in a way that could endanger their freedoms and rights.
Qualipro has complied with applicable legislation, regulation, statute, or order which may apply from time to time relating to the collection, storage, and use of Personal Information including (without limitation) the Privacy Act 1988(Cth), the Data Protection Act 1998, the European Union General Data Protection Regulation May 25, 2018, the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, the Data Protection (Processing of Sensitive Personal Data) Order 2000 and comparable laws, as the case may be in the applicable jurisdiction, or any amendments and/or re-enactments thereof.
Passed in 2016, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most significant legislative change in European data protection laws since the EU Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC), introduced in 1995. The GDPR, which becomes enforceable on May 25, 2018, seeks to strengthen the security and protection of personal data in the EU and serve as a single piece of legislation for all of the EU. It will replace the EU Data Protection Directive and all the local laws relating to it.
We support the GDPR and will ensure all Qualipro services comply with the GDPR provisions. Not only is the GDPR an important step in protecting the fundamental right of privacy for European citizens, but it also raises the bar for data protection, security, and compliance in the industry so, therefore, but Qualipro is also committed to abiding by all Data protection regulations
