GDPR Updates to Privacy Policy and Tools in our Matchmaking CRM Software

At SmartMatchApp, we have always strived to provide you with clear and simple information about the personal data we collect and use and how we protect your personal data with our Privacy Policy.   We are reaching out today to let you know that we made changes to our Privacy Policy, effective now.


These changes reflect the increased transparency requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (known as the ‘GDPR’) and help simplify and explain your choices about your data within SmartMatchApp Matchmaking CRM in general. SmartMatchApp updated its procedures, documents and policies to meet the following additional new compliance requirements with its matchmaking software:

Breach reporting.

The requirement for reporting of breaches to the relevant “data protection authority”, where feasible, within 72 hours of the occurrence. 

Status: Implemented

Accountability.

A key new GDPR compliance requirement is internal organisational accountability, specifically the establishment of a comprehensive data protection program. Such a program must include documented policies and procedures, maintaining detailed records of all data processing activities, guided by the principle of “privacy by design and by default”. 

Status: Implemented

Substantive privacy rights.

The GDPR also stipulates a number of new or enhanced substantive privacy rights for individuals which organisations will need to address and build into their privacy protection procedures, including the following:

Consent

- Must be a freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's agreement to the processing of his or her personal data and must be given by a statement or a clear affirmative action.

Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”)

Status: Implemented
