What is GDPR?
The Global Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR) was instituted by the European Union and it aims to harmonize rules and boost data protection and security for European Union (EU) citizens. At its core, the law allows EU citizens to have control over their personal data. GDPR applies to the use of data of EU citizens, regardless of whether or not the entity using the data is a member of the EU, and as such it is expected to have a huge impact on how data is collected, processed, used and shared globally.
The deadline to comply with this law is 25 May 2018.
Is Bluebeam GDPR compliant?
Over the last few months, we have taken the necessary steps to become compliant with GDPR by the deadline. At Bluebeam, full compliance with this regulation is important to us. We will continue to be a trusted partner for our customers and resellers around the world.
What work has Bluebeam done to become compliant with GDPR?
We have taken the following critical steps to become compliant, including:
- Audited all third-party services that assist Bluebeam with our products and services to make sure they are also compliant and have the necessary privacy and security controls in place.
- Applied to join the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield programme, a framework developed by the European Commission and US Department of Commerce that provides companies with a mechanism to comply with GDPR when transferring personal data from the EU and Switzerland to the US.
- Updated internal controls for the management of personal data
