MyDrive is 100% committed to data protection. That’s why we welcome the General Data Protection Regulation (also known as the GDPR), which was recently approved and adopted by the European Union (EU).

Data is at the heart of everything we do here at MyDrive. The security and privacy of personal data has always been the core of our operations, and we’ve reviewed our policies, and processes, in light of  GDPR.

What is the GDPR?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is European legislation designed to harmonise data protection rules across Europe, creating consistency in how organisations must safeguard and protect personal data of EU citizens.

What is personal data?

Any piece of information that can identify a living individual is considered personal data, including names, addresses, email, and even locations.

How does the GDPR apply to MyDrive Solutions?

GDPR comes into force on 25th May 2018, with the aim of protecting all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world. It applies to all businesses and organisations operating in the EU, and also those outside the EU who deal with EU citizens.

What steps has MyDrive taken to address GDPR compliance?

We undertook a rigorous impact assessment and information audit to assess our ability to comply with  GDPR data protection provisions, and we believe we can demonstrably confirm that we have achieved full compliance in accordance with the findings of the independent audit.

MyDrive’s Data Protection Officer (DPO) has conducted a preliminary review of the steps taken to date to comply with GDPR and is satisfied that the policies we have created relating to the protection of personal data, including the assignment of responsibilities, awareness-raising and training of employees involved in processing operations, and the related information audits will result in the company being wholly GDPR compliant.

The DPO will continue to monitor MyDrive’s compliance with GDPR over time

The importance of data and data privacy

MyDrive understands and recognises that to fulfil our obligations we may need to update, expand and evolve our business practices, to meet the demands of GDPR. MyDrive’s DPO will continue to perform all necessary tasks to ensure the risks associated are mitigated and or managed in accordance with GDPR data protection provisions.
