Data Protection & GDPR
Data protection is central to us here at games connection and we continually work hard to observe compliance worldwide and employ the best practices in protecting data and protecting user privacy.
We strive to ensure that the data we receive is:
Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner
Collected only for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes
Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary
Accurate and kept up to date
Held only for the absolute time necessary and no longer
Processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data
What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will apply from 25 May 2018, creates consistent data protection rules across Europe. It applies to companies that are based in the European Union and global companies that process personal data about individuals in the EU.
In summary, the GDPR gives consumers the rights of access, rectification, automated decision making and profiling, as well as the rights to erasure, restrict processing, data portability and object.
We welcome the implementation of GDPR as it is an important step to enabling and empowering individual privacy rights.
