Vatfree.com and GDPR

At vatfree.com, we take your data privacy and security seriously. Right now we’re preparing for the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that’s will be into force from May 25th 2018.

What’s GDPR?

This is a European Union regulation, designed to improve the data security and privacy of European citizens. Find out more on Wikipedia – the short version is “companies in Europe have to make sure your data is safe, and that you can access and control it”. 

It’s about giving you greater security, transparency, and control of your personal data online. We think this is a good thing wherever you’re from, not just if you live in the European Union!

GDPR, you and us

We’ve made GDPR compliance a priority at Vatfree.com: we are working a holistic approach across the whole company to make sure we’re ready for GDPR even earlier than May 2018. Not just a checklist, but about incorporating these principles of privacy and security into everything we do.

We’re reviewing our contracts with partners to make sure they are also compliant, and can give us the guarantees on privacy and data protection that we need, such as the EU-US Privacy Shield framework.

Frequently Asked Questions

We know you may have questions, so we’ve put together some of the most frequently-asked below. If you have more, please Contact Support.

How can I exercise my GDPR rights?

We are currently revisiting our data subject policies and processes so they are GDPR compliant. In the meantime, if you have any questions about your rights as a data subject, please contact us below and we’ll be very happy to help.

Yeah, but what is a data subject?

A data subject is legal jargon for any living person who has some personal data stored somewhere. So, that means pretty much all of us! We can’t, unfortunately, rewrite European Regulations without all the legal jargon, but we’ll try to explain them to you when necessary!

Do you have a Data Processing Agreement available to sign?

Our legal team is preparing a Data Processing Agreement that will be available to all our customers soon. Watch this space! Please contact us below, and we’ll follow up with you as soon as we can.

What does this mean for me?

If you’re a company, this means more transparency and visibility of how we process personal data. If you’re an individual, you don’t need to do anything! This all just means your data is safer than ever!
