Cloud Depot takes privacy and security seriously. We have worked hard to identify what data we hold, why we hold it and how long we need to hold it.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new regulation by the European Parliament that comes into force on the 25th of May 2018. The GDPR is intended to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). The GDPR also applies to companies that are domiciled outside of the EU but supply services to EU customers.
We have a Data Protection Officer on our Board of Directors whose job is to oversee our compliance with GDPR and ensure that business decisions in the future take into consideration GDPR rules.
As part of our preparedness with GDPR we ran an internal Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) which resulted in deciding to treat all PII (Personally Identifiable Information) to the same standard as other sensitive information we store. We broadened the definition of PII information to include IP addresses and browser information. For more information please
view our data security page.
We changed our data retention policy.
Our Development and Technical Support team is based in New Zealand. New Zealand is one of a few countries recognised by the EU as an adequate country to receive and process EU personal data.
Our Cloud Depot platform is hosted on the Amazon AWS platform. Amazon AWS will be fully compliant with the GDPR when it comes into force in May 2018. For more information please click here.
