The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force across the EU on 25 May 2018. GDPR introduces further protection to the way data is collected, archived and used for research studies. This policy introduces more transparency in data collection and data security.
Personally Identifying Information (PII). We’re introducing a data policy for platform users, the process for which you will be able to see in our FAQs. Users with any data requests should contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Plus, we're changing our process from 90 days to automatically delete all PII no later than 60 days after Admin Access ends on our platforms.
Further acknowledges the rights of our platform users under GDPR. These rights include and are not limited to:
Marketing. As has always been our commitment, you have the right to opt-in or opt-out from any marketing communications from Further. We hope you will choose to stay in touch.
Data hosting and Encryption at Rest. We use Amazon Web Services to host and process our clients’ data. It can be located in either of two server stacks in Oregon or Ireland. All access to the platforms is secured and encrypted over https and tls. Data stored on the service relies on AWS encryption at rest which provides high level security and encryption for all data input or stored on our platforms.
GDPR requires the ability for all EU platform users to view and download all personal data collected on them. Upholding their views of full transparency, Further is voluntarily extending these same rights to their members in North America and across the world. We believe all of our participants should have the same rights to privacy and transparency – not just those in Europe.
Further continues to monitor the guidance around GDPR compliance from privacy-related regulatory bodies, and will adjust processes accordingly if changes are made. To learn more and get started with GDPR-compliant studies, contact us at email@example.com or click here for more practical advice that we put together with the MRS and DAC Beachcroft's legal team.
Further is also ISO27001 certified.
