Elemica’s Corporate GDPR Statement
In May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaced the existing 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (European Directive 95/46/EC).
Elemica currently complies with applicable data protection regulations and is committed to GDPR compliance across its relevant services when the GDPR takes effect May 25, 2018. Elemica has a dedicated internal team made up of cross-functional stakeholders overseeing Elemica’s GDPR readiness. Elemica’s ongoing compliance efforts include:
Elemica is reviewing where and how our relevant services collect, use, store and dispose of personal data and updating policies, standards, governance and documentation as needed.
Working in conjunction with our partners and customers, Elemica is reviewing our contractual commitments and updating as needed to directly address GDPR requirements. Elemica has released a Data Processing Addendum (DPA) with provisions to assist our partners and customers with their GDPR compliance; our DPA is available by emailing our legal department at Elemicalegal@elemica.com. Elemica has also reviewed its existing supplier contracts to ensure GDPR compliance throughout its supply chain and will continue to conduct due diligence as new suppliers are onboarded.
Cross Border Data Transfer
In addition to ensuring Elemica’s contractual commitments meet the requirements to legally transfer data from the EU to the rest of the world under applicable law, Elemica plans to certify under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework.
Employee Training And Awareness
All Elemica employees must complete data privacy and security training. Elemica will supplement existing training modules with GDPR-specific content. In addition to these training requirements, Elemica conducts ongoing awareness initiatives on a variety of topics, including data protection, security and privacy.
Elemica Partners and Customers
Compliance with the GDPR requires a partnership between Elemica and our partners and customers in their use of applicable Elemica services. In this context, Elemica generally will act as a data processor and our partners and customers generally will act as data controllers. Working together, we hope to explore opportunities within our relevant service offerings to assist our partners and customers meet their GDPR obligations. In the meantime, Elemica encourages partners and customers to independently familiarize themselves with the GDPR.
