At Leadcamp, we embed Privacy by Design in our entire product development workflows to ensure that we fulfil EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), and maintain transparency about how we use data.
Here’s an overview of GDPR, and how we implemented it at Leadcamp:
The GDPR is a comprehensive data protection law that came into effect on May 25, 2018. It replaced existing EU law to strengthen the protection of “personal data” and the rights of the individual. It's a single set of rules which governs the processing and monitoring of EU data.
Does it affect me?
Yes, most likely. If you use Leadcamp to hold and process data about an individual in the EU, the GDPR applies to you whether you are based in the EU or not.
How Leadcamp implemented GDPR
Our team works hard to make sure we are GDPR compliant and help you be compliant as well. It is a big challenge for us to develop a data-rich product and that enables the user to meet the legal obligations at the same time.
Here are the main things we did:
We built a Privacy & Consent hub:
Together with our legal department, we have developed a Privacy & Consent hub to enable our customers to easily meet their GDPR obligations. Within this hub, we have created 4 privacy levels from which our users can choose in line with the way their company handles the regulations.
These levels are designed to handle, at the highest level, both opt-ins for data processing and tracking cookies separately, for both known and unknown leads entering the system.
We updated our Data Processing Policy (DPP):
Strong data protection commitments are an important part of the requirements of GDPR. Our data processing policy shares our privacy commitments and sets out the terms for Leadcamp and our clients to comply with GDPR requirements. This policy is provided to all customers when they create an account.
We coordinated with our vendors:
We’ve review all our vendors on a regular basis, to monitor their GDPR position and sign Data Processing Agreements with them.
