A BIT CRYPTIC PODCAST LIMITED (ABCP) GDPR STATEMENT
As of May 25, 2018, a new privacy law came into effect in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA), and is referred to as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR expands privacy rights granted to individuals in the EU and the EEA. A Bit Cryptic Podcast LIMITED and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “ABCP”) are committed to GDPR compliance, and ABCP has implemented and will continue to implement GDPR compliance efforts.
The GDPR imposes certain requirements on “data controllers” and “data processors.” Under the GDPR, a “data controller” is the individual or entity that determines the purposes for and manner in which personal data is collected, used and processed. ABCP is, generally speaking, the data controller of the personal information collected by ABCP. Additionally, the GDPR provides that a “data processor” is a person or entity that processes personal information on behalf of a data controller. Data controllers and data processors are generally required to enter into an agreement with one another to protect the personal information that the data processor obtains from the data controller. ABCP is working with its data and website service providers that process personal data of EU and EEA parties to implement such agreements.
If you have any questions or comments about the ABCP’s privacy practices and its GDPR compliance efforts, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can contact ABCP at [email protected].
