GDPR European lockGDPR: what does it mean?

Transpoco is committed to compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will go into effect May 25, 2018. The regulation contains the most significant changes to European data privacy legislation in the last 20 years, replacing European Privacy Directive 95/46/EC. It is designed to give EU citizens more control over their data and seeks to unify a number of existing privacy and security laws under one comprehensive law.

The GDPR applies not only to EU-based businesses, but also to any business that controls or processes data of EU citizens. Per the GDPR, personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual; meaning, information that could be used, on its own or in conjunction with other data, to identify an individual. Our customers can trust that Transpoco has made GDPR a priority and has devoted significant and strategic resources toward our efforts to comply with GDPR.

The final responsibility for understanding and complying with GDPR resides with you, though Transpoco will assist you in meeting GDPR requirements where possible.

If your drivers are doing some private driving and you have no privacy switch currently installed, please contact us at support@transpoco.com and we can set this up for you.
