What the GDPR is:
GDPR is a new comprehensive data protection law in the EU that updates existing laws to strengthen the protection of personal data. It replaces the patchwork of national data protection laws currently in place with a single set of rules, directly enforceable in each EU member state. It is effective from 25th May, 2018. EU residents will now have greater say over what, how, why, where, and when their personal data is used, processed, or disposed. This rule clarifies how the EU personal data laws apply even beyond the borders of the EU. Any organization that works with EU residents' personal data in any manner, regardless of location, has obligations to protect the data. We fully understand this, so we collect as little personal data as possible and safeguard it as well as we can.
What data the GDPR applies to:
Under the GDPR, the concept of "personal data" is very broad and covers any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual (also called a "data subject"). Personal Data is anything that you could conceivably use to identify a person within a larger group. That includes name, address, email, ip address, cookies, location etc.
Who the GDPR applies to:
The GDPR applies to all organizations operating in the EU or processing "personal data" of Switzerland and EU residents.
What personal data we have to collect and why:
We collect email addresses and names for communication purposes.
How long is the data processed:
The processing starts when you contact us and ends when you ask us to remove the data.
Where your personal data is stored:
The data is stored in secure hosting facilities provided by Google G Suite located in the US which is on the EU Commission's list of countries or territories providing adequate protection for the rights and freedoms of data subjects in connection with the processing of their personal data. G Suite is EU-U.S. Privacy Shield compliance certified and follows the relevant principles.
