Updates to SecurionPay Privacy Policy

As you may have heard, there’s a new data protection law that’s coming into effect later this month. We’ve released a new Privacy Policy which reinforces our already highest standards for data protection. Read on to find out the changes.

But first, what is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that comes into effect on 25 May 2018 is a new privacy law introduced in the European Union that need to be implemented in all member countries. In short, it’s about personal data protection of all the European Economic Area citizens.

It includes new rights to individuals regarding how their personal data is collected, processed and stored. This means that there are also new rules for organizations on how to manage personal data under the regulation.

A short reminder: Personal data is all the information that can be used to identify an individual. These are not only name, address, email address, a phone number or IP address, but also sensitive personal data, such as health information, political views, biometric data, etc. However, as you can guess, SecurionPay doesn’t store any sensitive information.

Policy updates

Our new Privacy Policy provides better clarity on how your data is being processed and — how we keep your information safe. All updates are compliant with the GDPR, which regulates how the personal data is processed and controlled. Just to let you know, we’re not asking to collect more personal data than before, now you can find more specific information on how and why we collect it.

In general, we’ve refined and reorganized our policies for clarity and transparency. We encourage you to read our Privacy Policy in full, but here’s the summary of what you can find there:

  • Improved readability. We’ve reorganized the policy to make it more clear and easier to understand, with more straightforward language.
  • Right to be forgotten. You can find information on how to correct or even delete your personal data from SecurionPay database at any time. You can also unsubscribe from any type of communication from us, even though we don’t recommend this as it’s the communication channel that notifies you of Visa and MasterCard regulation changes and any updates important for your payment processing infrastructure.
  • More control over your information. The policy also explains how you can make choices regarding your information to keep it secure. Please note that SecurionPay was built with privacy in mind from the very start.

As you can see, by updating the Privacy Policy, we make it easier to understand what information we collect and why we do it. There are also improvements in the policy navigation and organization to make it easy to find what you’re looking for. Also, we’re making it easier for you to control the information you provide us. Our goal is to make you use SecurionPay platform with confidence.

Wrapping up

  • All SecurionPay updates are compliant with GDPR.
  • SecurionPay won’t be changing the way we already collect or use your personal data.
  • You have the right to have your personal data erased.
  • We only send important emails with product updates and information that are crucial for your payment processing infrastructure.

SecurionPay is now fully compliant with GDPR to protect European Union residents from data breaches and the updated Privacy Policy comes into effect for all SecurionPay users on 25 May 2018. If you have any questions about these changes, please reach us by email.
