How Deadline Funnel complies with GDPR

Last updated: May 29, 2020

At Deadline Funnel, we work hard to comply with EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), to ensure that we fulfil its obligations and maintain transparency about customer messaging and how we use data.

Here is an overview of GDPR, and how we comply with it at Deadline Funnel.

What is GDPR?

The GDPR is a comprehensive data protection law that came into effect on May 25, 2018. It replaced existing EU law to strengthen the protection of "personal data" and the rights of the individual. It's a single set of rules which governs the processing and monitoring of EU data.

Does it affect me?

Yes, most likely. If you hold or process the data of an any person in the EU, the GDPR will apply to you, whether you’re based in the EU or not.

How Deadline Funnel prepared for GDPR

Our teams worked hard to ensure we complied with GDPR. This is an ongoing effort to make sure we’re meeting our legal obligations, and doing the best thing for our customers while still letting us deliver great products.

Here are the main things we did:

Data Portability

Deadline Funnel can help you meet your data portability requirements for GDPR, you can request an export of all of your data or granular subsets linked to an individual, and permanently delete all data linked to an individual user or request all data be deleted for your account.

Data Processing Agreement (DPA)

Strong data protection commitments are a key part of GDPR’s requirements. Our updated data processing agreement shares our privacy commitments and sets out the terms for Deadline Funnel and our customers to meet GDPR requirements.

Data Protection Officer

We’ve assigned a dedicated Data Protection Officer to oversee and advise on our data management. Get in touch by emailing help@deadlinefunnel.com.

International Data Transfers

The EU-US Privacy Shield is a framework negotiated and agreed by the European Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce as a lawful way of transferring personal data.

To comply with EU data protection laws around international data transfer, we self-certified under the E.U.-U.S. Privacy Shield and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield framework.

Vendors

We regularly review our vendors to ensure that they are GDPR-compliant.

We’ll keep sharing information on our progress, and we’ll also help our customers and prospective customers be compliant. Some steps you can take are:

  • Get familiar with the GDPR requirements and how they affect your company.
  • Map out everywhere you process data and carry out a gap analysis.
  • Consider how you can leverage Deadline Funnel to help with your GDPR compliance.
  • Look at your product roadmap, think about privacy when you’re planning.
  • Chat to your lawyer about what your company needs to do to.
  • Keep an eye on the developing guidelines from the European Data Protection Board.
