On 25 May 2018, the most significant piece of European data protection legislation to be introduced in 20 years will come into force. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive. The GDPR strengthens the rights that individuals have regarding personal data relating to them and seeks to unify data protection laws across Europe, regardless of where that data is processed.
You can count on the fact that Inflectra is committed to GDPR compliance across Inflectra’s SpiraTest®, SpiraTeam®, SpiraPlan®, KronoDesk® and TaraVault® Cloud services. We are also committed to helping our customers with their GDPR compliance journey by providing robust privacy and security protections built into our services and contracts over the years. In addition, Inflectra is a founding member of the US-EU and US-Swiss Privacy Shield programs concerning international data transfers.
To help you understand the roles and responsibilities when using Inflectra's cloud services to store, manage, and process EU citizen's data, we have created this helpful EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Whitepaper that discusses each of the GDPR regulations and explains how you can meet your compliance obligations using Inflectra's tools and services.
We have updated our cloud-hosting Terms of Service (ToS) to align them with the principles of the GDPR for customers storing or processing data that belongs to EU citizens.
