Our General Data Protection Regulation Compliance Statement

Introduction

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) came into force across the European Union on 25th May 2018, bringing with it the most significant changes to data protection law in two decades. Based on privacy by design and taking a risk-based approach, the GDPR has been designed to meet the requirements of the digital age.

The 21st century brings with it broader use of technology, new definitions of what constitutes personal data, and a vast increase in cross-border processing. The new Regulation aims to standardise data protection laws and processing across the EU; affording individuals stronger, more consistent rights to access and control their personal information.

Point 9 Analytics Limited (‘we’ or ‘us’ or ‘our’) are committed to ensuring the security and protection of the personal information that we process, and to provide a compliant and consistent approach to data protection. As a new company, it is our intention to establish practices that are compliant with existing laws and industry best practice. Although we are a New Zealand-based organisation, Point 9 Analytics recognises it’s global footprint and the potential for future customers and clients to fall within the EU remit. Therefore, we recognise our obligations in updating and expanding this program to meet the demands of the GDPR.
