On May 25th 2018 the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force. In paralel with creating our GDPR training here at BestQualified we’ve taken the time to assess how the changes in regulation affect our business and ensure that we are ‘GDPR compliant’. We’ve prepared this FAQ to help answer some of the most common GDPR questions we get asked.
Are BestQualified GDPR compliant?
Yes. We have taken the steps necessary to ensure that we are/were GDPR compliant prior to May 25th 2018. We have updated our internal systems and processes as necessary and have ensured that 3rd party processors are also GDPR compliant.
What has BestQualified done to comply with GDPR?
We’ve reviewed our data processing activities and made changes to our processes and application. If you require more specific information on the steps we have taken to ensure compliance please contact us at [email protected]
Does BestQualified store data outside of the EU?
We process some data outside of the EU. However under GDPR we are permitted to transfer personal data outside of the EU if it is adequately protected. We have ensured that our third party processors outside of the EU (In this case in the US) are certified to the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework.
What type of personally identifiable information does BestQualified process on a clients behalf?
In regards to your client account with us we process your Name, Email address and Organisation details (Name, Address, Telephone Number).
