GDPR And You

At simplebooklet, we care deeply about protecting the personal data of our users. We only collect and store information that is necessary to offer our service, and we do this with the consent of our users. Our approach towards privacy, security, and data protection aligns with the goals of the European Union's GDPR regulation, and we've taken measures to ensure that we are fully compliant.

About the GDPR

GDPR stands for the General Data Protection Regulation. It is the European Union's (EU's) new regulation that safeguards the personal data of individuals in the EU, as well as the export of personal data abroad.

The GDPR gives EU residents greater control over how any organization worldwide collects, processes, stores, and shares their personal data. Personal data is broadly defined in the regulations, but in general it can be thought of as any data that can be used to personally identify an individual. It applies to any organization that processes EU citizens' personal data, regardless of the organization's location.

The regulation encompasses the steps to be taken in all areas of protecting an individual's privacy, including setting up security mechanisms, compliance, and repercussions. Failure to comply with the GDPR incurs a heavy fine for the non-compliant organization.

Our stance on Privacy and the GDPR

Here at simplebooklet, we strongly support data privacy legislation because we believe that strong privacy practices are good for our customers, and thus good for us. We are fully committed to the protection of our users' data.

We will do our best to support your GDPR compliance efforts by providing information about the data that simplebooklet collects, transmits, and stores for your account. That being said, we are unable to offer legal advice pertaining to how you or your organization achieve compliance.

Please read our privacy policy to learn more.

What we're doing to comply

Just like any other software company with users and customers based inside the EU, we are implementing a compliance strategy leading up to May 25th, 2018. We are committed to ensuring that our data privacy practices are in compliance with the GDPR by the deadline.

We understand that our customers have GDPR requirements that are directly affected by their use of simplebooklet and to that effect we are working hard with everyone on our team to ensure that, to the extent simplebooklet directly collects the personal data of EU residents, it is GDPR compliant. Here are some of the steps we've taken:
