The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become enforceable on May 25, 2018. The GDPR replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and will standardise data privacy and protection laws across Europe. It will also reach beyond Europe, as it applies to any entity that processes personal data tied to offering goods or services to, or monitoring behaviour of, European data subjects.
For the purposes of this statement Micad represents the following statutory legal entities: Micad Investment Holdings Ltd, Micad Systems (UK) Ltd, Pierce Assets Ltd, Pierce Management Services Ltd, PMS2 Ltd and Integrated Handheld Solutions Ltd
Micad are aware of our obligations as a data processor under the GDPR and we are working to ensure that all services to which the GDPR applies will be compliant when enforcement begins in May 2018.
Micad has always prioritised the privacy and security of the content within our systems. As part of our GDPR compliance efforts, we will continue to refine, improve and document our security measures to protect against unauthorised access, use or disclosure of the content within our systems.
GDPR compliance will be a responsibility of all data processors and data controllers, including those that use our services. Micad is committed to making our services compliant, so our partners and clients can continue to use our services, with confidence, in a manner that supports their own compliance efforts.
Regulatory guidance on the GDPR from European data authorities is still evolving, and we are closely monitoring how GDPR will be interpreted in the context of the services we provide. As this evolves we will continue to follow the latest guidance in our policies, terms and processes.
In the coming months, we will share updates and further details on our GDPR compliance efforts.
