SSPC, GDPR and Your Data Privacy
On May 25, 2018, the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) officially went into effect. The regulation is widely considered the most comprehensive data privacy regulation in the world. SSPC began preparations for GDPR compliance in 2017 and has enacted several changes to strengthen policies and procedures used in collecting and managing member and customer information.
Finally, we also improved how data is collected from new users by adding specific language and check boxes to all request forms indicating what will happen with your data when it’s submitted to SSPC, and giving you the option to opt-in/opt-out to receiving information right at the start of your engagement with SSPC. This process also includes a double opt-in procedure where new users will be asked to confirm their opt-in/opt-out request within 24 hours of submitting the form.
Your privacy is something that we take seriously at SSPC and we will continue to improve how we handle and secure your data as the world of information becomes more complex.
