On 25 May 2018, all companies that handle, process, and control personal data have to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Under the GDPR, Planday is classified as a Data Processor, so we’ll be working towards those compliance standards. Below, we’ve outlined exactly how we will comply with the new regulations. Ultimately, our goal is to protect the personal data we handle and process, so you feel secure and confident using Planday.

We recently began an assessment of our internal and external facing products and systems to identify where we need to take action in order to be compliant. So far, we have identified several areas that need attention. 

We consider GDPR compliance a top priority, so we’ve created a team that will focus solely on ensuring we meet all the new requirements. We aim to have a full implementation plan in place by July 2017. Prior to that, we plan to start work on some of our known compliance actions. 

All compliance actions will be completed by November 2017. We will then use December 2017 and January 2018 to assess our level of compliance. If we need to take any further action, that will be completed by February 2018.

We are extremely conscious of how important data protection is to you, and are committed to working with you to ensure we meet our customers’ data requirements. Please let us know if there are specific parts of GDPR or Planday’s compliance that you would like further information about. Emails should be sent to our Chief Technology Officer, Pete Marshall: pdm@planday.com (please write all questions in English ?).
