Hz Technologies Commitment to GDPR
Hz Technologies welcome GDPR as an important step forward in streamlining data protection requirements across the EU, and as an opportunity for Hz Technologies to strengthen our commitment to data protection. GDPR requires a cooperation between Hz Technologies and our customers in their use of our services and we aim to comply with all GDPR regulations. Hz Technologies will continue to monitor GDPR and update as the new laws come into effect.
An important aspect of GDPR is how the data is collected and used. As a data processor, Hz Technologies role is to provide our customers with the access to effectively manage and protect their user data. Hz Technologies is constantly investigating new ways to enhance our service offerings so that we can provide better transparency to our customers.
Data Integrity and Security
As our customers tighten their data security measures, Hz Technologies are strengthening processes by using procedures that provide end-to-end security to complete Cyber Essentials. The aim of this is to show we understand the importance of GDPR and that the regulations sit in line with our core values.
Working closely alongside our partners, Hz Technologies have reviewed our supplier contracts to ensure GDPR regulations are met throughout our supply chain. All Hz Technologies employees must complete data privacy and security training with GDPR specific content to ensure all our clients data is respected, kept securely and has the relevant retention policy applied.
Hz Technologies 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, Hz Technologies encourages partners and customers to independently familiarise themselves with the GDPR.
