Commanders Act allows its customers to manage their data in compliance with the RGPD

RGPD Compliant, Commanders Act meets the new obligations regarding the protection of personal data.

Commanders Actthe SaaS software editor and tag and data expert, confirms its compliance with all the obligations of the General Data Protection Regulation. Commanders Act offers additional security for its customers through its Privacy module, which allows the collection of consent in an appropriate manner and guarantees the rights of the persons concerned.

Commanders ActRGPD compliant

After receiving the European ePrivacyseal certification for data protection in May 2017, Commanders Act has continued its GPR compliance over the months.

To date, Commanders Act has met all the requirements in terms of infrastructure, terms and conditions, documentation and methods.

Commanders Act hosts all data collected in Tier 4 datacenters located in France. The traceability of each data is ensured and systematically prevents any recording of data whose origin is unknown. All data collected is anonymized and encrypted in order to make identification impossible.

An export module, specifically developed to meet the obligation of portability, allows to extract at the request of a user all the data concerning him. By simply sending an email, Commanders Act can quickly and efficiently delete all information concerning the applicant.

The processes put in place organize a declaration within 72 hours to the competent authorities in the event of a detected breach of personal data. Finally, a Data Protection Officer was appointed on November 20.

Because every actor will now have an extended responsibility for the protection of personal data, it will be necessary to ensure that they only deal with partners and subcontractors who are themselves capable of respecting the conditions imposed by the regulation. By choosing Commanders Act, companies ensure that they comply with the provisions of Article 28 of the RGPD on subcontracting.

Privacy module: the RGPD compliant consent form

The provisions of the RGPD aim to obtain, before any collection of personal data, a truly informed consent from the visitor. This implies informing both on the nature of the data collected and on the purposes of this collection. Several purposes may thus coexist. It is up to the company to list them, display them and allow for their easy deactivation.

That's why the most common consent collection device settings used today will no longer be legal in May 2018. It will no longer be enough to click OK or simply continue browsing to allow collection. You will have to be fully informed. Among the families of solutions affected, we find analytical solutions, advertising solutions, personalization and recommendation solutions or solutions allowing the monitoring of social networks.

Commanders Act has a privileged position on the market through its solution TagCommander. By enabling better tag governance, it offers marketing teams a privacy cockpit. In concrete terms, the Commanders Act tag container will direct the visitor to the Privacy Center, which will allow him to choose his preferences. Informed of the visitor's choice, the container will only activate the solution families or solutions that have obtained explicit and informed consent. For them, the container will let the tags run, place a cookie in the browser, collect the information desired by the marketing team and deliver the requested value. For all others, no cookies can be set and no data can be collected.

The spirit of the text is well reflected in the Privacy module: it is no longer a question of unsubscribing but of subscribing to a collection protocol about which the individual is sufficiently informed.

This evolution of the legislation confirms the good choices that Commanders Act has always made in the field of personal data protection. Thus, the SaaS editor has been offering its Privacy module to its customers since 2012. Commanders Act also carries out privacy audits in companies (enumeration and control of existing tags, collection behaviors) and pursues training and consulting activities in the field of tags and data.
