GDPR Statement of Compliance
The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), which will become enforceable on May 25th, 2018, aims to strengthen the security and protection of personal data in the European Union (“EU”). This rule clarifies how the EU personal data laws apply even beyond the borders of the EU and will replace the European Privacy Directive and national legislations accordingly. Any organization that works with EU residents’ personal data in any manner has obligations to protect the data. PFL Tech, Inc. (“PFL”) is well aware of its role in providing the right tools and processes to support its users and customers in order to meet their GDPR mandates.
At PFL, we have demonstrated our commitment to data privacy and protection by meeting the industry standards for PCI, HIPAA, SOC 1 and SOC 2. We recognize that the GDPR will help us move towards the highest standards of operations in protecting customer data and PFL attests that we will comply with applicable GDPR regulations as a data processor by the May 25th, 2018 enforcement date.
PFL GDPR Roles and Employees
PFL has designated Casey Bartz, Chief Technology Officer, as our Data Protection Officer (DPO) and has a dedicated internal team of cross-functional stakeholders to develop and implement our roadmap for GDPR compliance. The team is responsible for promoting awareness of the GDPR across the organization, assessing our GDPR readiness, identifying any gap areas and implementing the new policies, procedures and measures. PFL understands that continuous employee awareness and understanding is vital to the continued compliance of the GDPR. We have incorporated GDPR specific content to PFL’s onboarding and annual employee training programs.
PFL GDPR Readiness
Our readiness initiatives include:
- Designating data privacy roles;
- Building on existing security policies, processes and controls;
- Providing visibility and transparency;
- Enhancing data integrity and security;
- Portability and transferability of data;
- Identifying personal data;
- Encrypting, anonymizing or deleting user data; and
- Creating provisions for data subject’s rights.
PFL Users and Customers
Compliance with the GDPR requires a partnership between PFL and our users and customers in their use of applicable PFL services. In this context, PFL will act as a data processor and our users and customers will act as data controllers. Working together, we hope to explore opportunities within our relevant service offerings to support our users and customers in meeting their GDPR obligations. PFL encourages partners and customers to independently familiarize themselves with the GDPR. Please direct questions or comments regarding PFL’s data privacy program to PFLTrust@PFL.com.
