General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR

What is the GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new European privacy law becomes enforceable on May 25, 2018.

Who does the GDPR apply to?

The GDPR applies to all entities and individuals based in the EU and to entities and individuals, whether or not based in the EU, that process the personal data of EU individuals. The GDPR defines personal data as any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This is a broad definition, and includes data that is obviously personal (such as an individual’s name or contact details) as well as data that can be used to identify an individual indirectly (such as an individual’s IP address).

What is a controller, and what is a processor?

According to article 4 of the EU GDPR Controller – “means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data”

Processor – “means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller” What is Our role under GDPR, controller or processor?

We combine data processor and a data controller roles:

When you use Our products and services to process EU personal data, We act as a data processor. We act as a data controller for the EU customer information We collect to provide Our products and services and to provide timely customer support.

What personal data do We collect and store from you?

We store data that you have given us voluntarily. You decide what personal data, if any, is uploaded to Our products and services.

What personal data We collect for payment processing?

We may provide paid products and/or services within the Service. In that case, We use third-party services for payment processing (e.g. payment processors).

We will not store or collect your payment card details. That information is provided directly to Our third- party payment processors whose use of your personal information is governed by their Privacy Policy.

These payment processors adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of payment information.

How long We retain your personal data?

We retain Personal Data We collect from you where We have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements).

When We have no ongoing legitimate and business need to process your Personal Data, We will delete your Personal Data.

With whom do We share personal data?

We do not share your data with third parties except as in accordance with this Privacy Policy, any agreement We have with you or as required by law.

What are the secure options used?

According to the GDPR, the controller and the processor shall implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk.

We are constantly reviewing and enhancing its technical, physical and managerial procedures and rules to protect your personal data from unauthorized access, accidental loss and/or destruction. We use industry standard TLS certificates to provide encryption of data in transit, for example, all access to Our websites and management portals is covered by HTTPS protocol.

What is changing with WHOIS privacy?

Also, from May 25th, We will not publish the personal data of domain name registrants located in the EU in the WHOIS. This is to ensure Our WHOIS output is compliant with the GDPR.

However, access to personal data of domain name registrants may be granted when such access is necessary for technical reasons such as for the facilitation of transfers, or for law enforcement when it is legally entitled to such access.

What is the Data Processing Agreement (DPA)?

Customers that handle EU personal data are required to comply with the privacy and security requirements under the GDPR. As part of this, they must ensure that the vendors they use to process the EU personal data also have privacy and security protections in place. We are committed to GDPR compliance and to helping you to comply with the GDPR when they use Our services. We have therefore made Our DPA available for you and it can be found here
