Of all the things professionals have to stress about, we aim to ensure Whil’s treatment of the data is not one!
- More control over your information. We make it easy for you to control the information you provide to us. Our policy explains how you can make choices about your information, and the measures we’ve put in place to keep your information secure.
- Using our solutions at work. Many users have access to our services through their sponsors (e.g., their employers), who control their accounts or use of our services. The updated policy clarifies our relationship to these users and explains the tools available to administrators of these users.
What is GDPR, and what is Whil doing to comply?
GDPR stands for the General Data Protection Regulation and is effective as of May 25th, 2018. GDPR replaces national privacy and security laws that previously existed within the EU with a single, comprehensive EU-wide law that governs the use, sharing, transfer and processing of any personal data that originates from the EU. Our policy is to respect all laws that apply to our business and this includes GDPR.
- Whil has updated our terms and conditions, registration, and contracting processes to give you greater visibility into what data is collected, how it is used, and the ability to modify or erase information to the full extent legally allowed.
- Whil commits to follow appropriate security measures and precautions in accordance with GDPR to keep your data safe.
- In the event of a data breach, Whil notifies regulators of breaches and promptly communicates to customers and users.
- We will ensure that employees authorized to process personal data have committed to confidentiality.
- We will hold any sub-processors that handle personal data, including our data center partners, to the same data management, security, and privacy practices and standards to which we hold ourselves.
- Whil has provided a seamless request portal for individuals to access any data we may currently process or store.
- Whil carries out regular data impact assessments and consults with EU regulators to minimize threats of data breaches.
- Where appropriate, we will offer contractual language documenting our commitments to our customers to support their GDPR obligations.
