We're GDPR compliant
Please note this document is currently being updated.
As the Internet evolves - so do the policies that govern the way we store and share information. One of the latest policies to come into effect is The General Data Protection Regulation. This policy, also known as GDPR, comes out of the European Union and its goal is to protect certain types of personal information.
Azuz IT & GDPR
The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, is a regulation that comes into effect May 25, 2018. The GDPR regulates the collection, processing, transport, and use of personal information about individuals in Europe.
A good place to start is on the ICO's Guide to the GDPR. Azuz IT does not provide consulting services on the GDPR but we can recommend a partner that can help. If you would like more information please contact us. Where we can help is if a consultant identifies areas in your IT and/or website that may need changing as part of your compliance. The main thing to note is that the GDPR is not just about your IT or your website. It covers all personal data you handle as part of providing a service, internally under yourHR obligations, for your marketing, or for any other purpose - it doesn't matter if that's electronic, paperwork on your desk, or data that's transferred verbally.
GDPR applies to Azuz IT because we have both direct and indirect European customers, staff, and partners whose personal information may be collected or processed by us, or on our behalf. It may also apply to companies who provide services to us to the extent we provide this data to them. As a managed services company, Azuz IT also has access to systems that may contain personal information that our customers collect or process on behalf of their customers. It is our belief that data security is important no matter whether it is personal data or business data and for that reason we are going beyond the requirements of the GDPR and applying the same policies and security to all data we handle regardless of its classification.
Azuz IT has completed a data mapping exercise designed to identify how we collect, handle, and transfer European personal information that is subject to the GDPR.
