Introduced on 25th May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most significant legislative change in Europe relating to the data protection laws since the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC in 1995.
GDPR extends the scope of EU data protection law to all foreign companies processing the data of EU residents and defines a new set of “digital rights” for EU citizens.
Below are some important documents and information about our implementation and compliance to GDPR.
We have performed considerable investigation and analysis into the operation of our business and endeavoured to ensure we comply with the new requirements imposed by the GDPR.
All Green Hosting act as both a data processor and a data controller under the GDPR.
All Green Web Hosting (Data Controller): We act as a data controller for the EU customer information which we collect to provide our services and to manage them (such as customer support). Information we collect on our customers includes customer name and addresses.
All Green Hosting (Data Processor): When a customer uses our services, we process the personal data provided by the customers on their behalf and will in addition comply with our customers instructions to ensure that we comply with the new legal obligations that apply to data processors under the GDPR.
The GDPR applies to organisations and individuals operating within the EU, whether or not they are based in the EU. This means it applies to organisations outside the EU that offer goods or services to individuals within the EU.
The GDPR defines ‘personal data’ as any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in a particular reference to an identifier.
The GDPR definition provides for a wide range of personal identifiers, some of which are obviously personal data (such as names and address), as well as data which can be used to identify an individual indirectly (for example an IP address).
