Like many other companies, Docmosis has reviewed its company-wide compliance strategy with respect to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came in to effect from 25th May 2018. In doing so Docmosis completed an audit of all data flowing in and out of our organization, either in our capacity as a Data Controller or as a Data Processor.
Docmosis offers a GDPR compliant Data Processing Addendum to our standard Cloud Services Agreement so that customers can use the Cloud Services in a GDPR compliant manner and we have executed Data Processing Addendums with our sub-processors.
We are committed to: a process of continual improvement of our privacy and security measures; notifying regulators of personal data breaches; and promptly communicating any such breaches to our customers.
