General Data Protection Regulation

What is the GDPR?

Starting from May 25, 2018, all the EU enterprises and international businesses providing for EU customers have been subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (commonly referred to as GDPR). GDPR is meant to introduce common standards to data privacy and give users greater security and control over their personal data online.

What does GDPR mean for Pics.io?

Pics.io is a service for managing digital assets, so the security of our users’ data has always been the cornerstone of our work and our top priority. That is why, by the time GDPR legislation was enacted, we have significantly revamped our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy and made them even more transparent than before. So now we are proud to say that Pics.io app is 100% GDPR compliant.

How does Pics.io protect your data?

The protection of our users’ data rests on three major principles:

1. Ultimately simple onboarding
To become a registered user of Pics.io, all you need is an email address. It is the only minimum requirement to get registered in Pics.io and stay identified as a user. We don’t ask your name, your position in the company, telephone number, or anything like that. We don’t even store your credit card information either. All the payments are handled in Stripe.

2. No asset is stored in Pics.io
Even though Pics.io is a Digital Assets Management service, we do not store our users’ digital assets in any way. Pics.io works on top of your storage in Google Drive via cryptographic keys from Google Drive API, meaning that files never leave your Google Drive folder.

3. Data management tools
We are determined to give our users more transparency and full control of their personal data. In compliance with GDPR legislation, you have access to Data management tools that allow you to see and download all your personal information that you have entered in Pics.io. You can also restrict our access to your data or even delete all your data from Pisc.io at any time without a trace.

Want to learn more about Pics.io commitment to GDPR?

The way we handle and protect our users’ data is entirely described in our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. As we take our users’ privacy and the integrity of legal rights very seriously, giving consent to these two documents is the obligatory requirement in order to become a registered Pics.io user. We tried to keep these documents plain and simple, but if you have some questions, welcome to contact us as support@pics.io.
