Deputy employee scheduling and shift worker assistant explains GDPR

Deputy recently like all cloud software solutions put out a statement regarding the upcoming changes due to the GDPR.

At Deputy it’s our mission to improve the lives of shift workers, globally.

To help us achieve this mission, and in preparation for new EU data protection laws, we’ve updated our Privacy Policy, Subscription Agreement and internal processes.

These updates ensure we are compliant with the new European laws (known as the General Data Protection Regulations, or GDPR), and give you more transparency and control over how we deal with your personal information.

To keep you informed, we’ve addressed a few common questions about the GDPR below:

What is the GDPR?
The GDPR is a comprehensive data protection law that replaces existing European privacy laws and strengthens the protection of personal data in an increasingly data driven world. The GDPR is enforceable in each EU member state and gives individuals greater control over their personal data.

Why does it matter now?
The GDPR comes into effect on 25 May 2018. We’re updating our processes, systems and policies now to make sure we’re fully prepared.

What is personal data?
Any information related to a natural person (individual) that can be used to directly or indirectly identify the person. It can be anything from a name, a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social networking websites, medical information, or a computer IP address.

Who does it affect?
The GDPR applies to any organisation that processes personal data of EU individuals, regardless of whether the organisation has a physical presence in the EU. For Deputy customers, that’s any organisation with one or more employees in the EU.

What do I need to do?
Our new Privacy Policy and Subscription Agreements will go into effect from today. Please read the updated Subscription Agreement and Privacy Policy and make sure you familiarise yourself with their contents.

If you’d like to learn more about the GDPR and the changes we’re making, we’ve created an FAQ’s page. Read the FAQ’s here.

Thanks,
The Deputy team.
