GDPR

The TenderHood's Commitment To GDPR

Our Commitment

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is an important piece of legislation that is designed to strengthen and unify data protection laws for all individuals within the European Union. The regulation became effective and enforceable on the 25th May 2018.

The TenderHood has undertaken the required business and technology steps to operate in a manner compliant with GDPR.

What Has The TenderHood Done?

We have developed our technology in a way that gives our users complete control over their data. In our system you can achieve the following:

  • Download all of your data from the Supplier Social Network
  • Control exactly who see what data in the Supplier Social Network
  • Request at any time to have your data removed from our system via the request form below.

We have also made it part of our internal company strategy to only work with other software providers who are also GDPR compliant.

Additionally we will only ever store data that 1. we have permission to store, and 2 that we require to operate our service.

We will also never sell or give your data to any other parties without your permission.

Based on the research conducted by both our Director of Strategy and our Head of Data we are confident these changes address the requirements of the GDPR.

    More Info On GDPR

    The General Data Protection Act (GDPR) is considered to be the most significant piece of European data protection legislation to be introduced in the European Union (EU) in 20 years and will replace the the 1995 Data Protection Directive.

    The GDPR regulates the processing of personal data about individuals in the European Union including its collection, storage, transfer or use. Importantly, under the GDPR, the concept of “personal data” is very broad and covers any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual (also called a “data subject”).

    It gives data subjects more rights and control over their data by regulating how companies should handle and store the personal data they collect. The GDPR also raises the stakes for compliance by increasing enforcement and imposing greater fines should the provisions of the GDPR be breached.

    The GDPR enhances EU individuals’ privacy rights and places significantly enhanced obligations on organizations handling data.

    In summary, here are some of the key changes to come into effect with the upcoming GDPR:

    • Expanded rights for individuals: The GDPR provides expanded rights for individuals in the European Union by granting them, amongst other things, the right to be forgotten and the right to request a copy of any personal data stored in their regard.
    • Compliance obligations: The GDPR requires organizations to implement appropriate policies and security protocols, conduct privacy impact assessments, keep detailed records on data activities and enter into written agreements with vendors.
    • Data breach notification and security: The GDPR requires organizations to report certain data breaches to data protection authorities, and under certain circumstances, to the affected data subjects. The GDPR also places additional security requirements on organizations.
    • New requirements for profiling and monitoring: The GDPR places additional obligations on organizations engaged in profiling or monitoring behavior of EU individuals.
    • Increased Enforcement: Under the GDPR, authorities can fine organizations up to the greater of €20 million or 4% of a company’s annual global revenue, based on the seriousness of the breach and damages incurred. Also, the GDPR provides a central point of enforcement for organizations with operations in multiple EU member states by requiring companies to work with a lead supervisory authority for cross-border data protection issues.

    If you are a company outside the EU, you should still be aware of this. The provisions of the GDPR apply to any organization that processes personal data of individuals in the European Union, including tracking their online activities, regardless of whether the organization has a physical presence in the EU.
