You may have heard about GDPR? We thought we’d let you know what we’ve been up to here at Sentle to help prepare and make sure we’re all set. As we’re in the business of storing data it’s pretty important we are however as a customer you also have obligations regarding managing your data so the following is an overview created to help you, it’s not legal advice.
From May 25 2018 there are stricter obligations on businesses regarding the collection, management and storage of data. This is imposed by a new EU policy which is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The policy will affect anyone who stores personal identifiable information from any EU citizen such as name, email, address, date of birth, personal interests and more.
Sentle is our core CRM platform, launched in 2017 we are already in a very good place in terms of storing, processing and managing data as we’ve developed the software using compliant friendly technology.
Sentle also provides the base technology for our hospitality product ‘EngageInn’ so all of the actions we take in terms of compliance automatically apply to that product too.
We have also reviewed our functionality and the good news is that we already have many features in place that help process your data in a respectful manner.
