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?
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.
