TalkLife’s Plan for GDPR Compliance
Our Commitment to You and the Protection of Your Data
TalkLife takes data protection and people’s privacy very seriously and we are committed to continuing to comply with data protection laws.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) creates consistent data protection rules across the EU. The GDPR will become effective as of 25 May 2018 and applies to companies based in the EU, as well as to companies around the world who provide or offer goods or services, and who process data from or about people in the EU. While many of the principles of the GDPR build on current data protection rules in the EU, the GDPR has a wider scope, more prescriptive standards and substantial fines for compliance violations. For example, it requires companies to obtain a higher standard of consent from customers, where relevant, and broadens individuals’ rights with respect to accessing and porting their data.
At TalkLife, preparations are well underway to ensure that our products and services comply with the GDPR. TalkLife, will all comply with the GDPR. Our team has been working to review and expand our tools to help people manage their privacy and understand their choices with respect to their personal data. We’re also expanding our data protection team to support these efforts, and will hire a data protection officer.
We are committed to transparency, control and accountability.
- Control: We’ll continue to provide people with controls over how their user account data is being used, how long we keep data and we’re making it easier to remove content and accounts.
- Accountability: We are accountable for our privacy practices, which includes updating our existing compliance program to ensure that we are adequately documenting our GDPR review and compliance.
