The GDPR was introduced by the European Union to protect the privacy of EU residents. At its core, the new legislation gives individuals a greater say over what, how, why, where, and when their personal data is used, processed, or deleted. The GDPR also requires organisations to implement stricter security protocols, record any data processing activities under their responsibility, and ensure any data breaches are reported to the data subjects without delay after being made aware, within a maximum time frame of 72 hours.
The GDPR requires compliance from any organisation with 250 staff members (or more) that stores or processes the personal data of EU residents, regardless of the organisation's location. If an organisation does not work with the personal data of EU residents but acts as a data processor the GDPR may still apply, as without the compliance of the data processor, their customers could be deemed non-compliant.
Smaller organisations with fewer than 250 staff members may be exempt if they do not risk the rights and freedoms of individuals, only process data occasionally, are not processing data relating to criminal convictions/offences, and are not processing sensitive data, such as an individual's race, ethnic origin, religion, etc.
Antipodes is compliant with all aspects of the GDPR, which covers the privacy of data subjects, the security of their data, and their control of their data.
Security and privacy of customer data
Antipodes treats the security and privacy of customer data as its highest priority. Some of the policies we enforce include mandatory SSL connections (both internally and externally), real-time encryption/decryption of all personal data in our database, irreversible password salting and hashing, and further encryption for all offsite/cold storage backups.
Transferring personal data outside the EU or the EEA
Antipodes normal (regular) data processing activities all occur with third-party service providers who provide GDPR compliance by proxy.
On occasion (and only when necessary) data may be transferred to a third country if permissible - that is if the third country has been deemed by the EU Commission to ensure an appropriate level of protection, the recipient of the data guarantees an acceptable level of data protection in accordance with EU standard contractual clauses for the transmission of personal data, or there are other safeguards in place that permit such a transfer.
Responding to data breaches
In the unlikely event that personal data is stolen, Antipodes will notify all data controllers and data subjects that are affected within 48 hours by email.
