Privacy Protection You Can
    Count On

    Defend privacy rights while sharing personal data. Our platform enables easy compliance with the strict regulations that apply to any organization doing business with citizens or residents of the European Union.

    Guard Personal Data

    If your company collects any data from EU citizens or residents, you are subject to GDPR Compliance and are considered a Data Controller, requiring you to:

    • Have explicit consent from users whose data you collect. 
    • Notify the proper authorities within 72 hours of a known data breach. 
    • Provide EU consumers the right to access the data collected from them. 
    • Provide the right to erasure or the right to be forgotten. This allows the consumers to request that any and all data previously collected by your company is erased. 

    After its passage by the European Parliament, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect in 2016. As of May 2018, this law has applied to all organizations that either process the personal data of EU citizens or residents, or offer them goods or services. 

    GDPR originated in Europe but it imposes obligations that apply worldwide to anyone handling the personal data of people in the EU. Under the regulation, organizations must be diligent in guarding personal data and prove how they protect it.

    Understanding the Key Data Protection Principles of GDPR

    Read how our platform enables you to meet or exceed critical security and privacy standards to ensure your data is safe, making it easy to share files in accordance with the GDPR principles for data protection that range from transparency to accountability.

    Lawfulness, Fairness, and Transparency Our platform enables transparency by helping you keep records of your client data with administrative logs and file access logs that are ready when needed. 
    ShareTru Icons_Purpose Limitation
    Purpose Limitation This principle holds that you must process personal data for the purposes specified to your EU customer. As a processor, we will only process or use Personal Data in accordance with the scope of our data processing agreement and our Terms of Service.
    Data Minimization Minimization of data means that your organization should handle only as much data as necessary for the specified purposes. Our platform provides unlimited folders to help you delineate your files, and it’s easy to delete data that’s no longer needed, either manually or using file retention rules.
    Accuracy To satisfy the conditions of this principle, your organization must ensure that people’s personal data is current and accurate. Our platform supports this by providing a secure place for keeping up-to-date customer information.
