On 25th May 2018 the new EU GDPR regulations officially become enforceable. The regulations will be put in place regardless of Brexit negotiations, and we are aware of the huge effect this will have on PracticePal as a product, as a product provider, and on our customers.
We started investigating the new regulations in September 2017, and have been actively working with our staff and a number of advisors to gain a full understanding of the implications, and create a number of action plans for what we will be doing to ensure we are compliant with GDPR, pre May 25th. We also hope to offer as much support as possible to our customer base in providing their own GDPR compliance.
Please note that we will advise our user where possible, and provide tools, where possible, to enable GDPR compliance to our users, our role as the data processors is standalone, meaning the data controllers (software users) will need to manage their own internal investigations in line with GDPR, as to ensure their compliance.
We’re currently working on putting a data protection officer in place, and we will release a full statement on this between by the end of March, detailing our immediate plans.
