General Data Protection Regulation: Updates & Discussion From OmniComm Systems

Posted by Sharon Rosenberg on Jun 1, 2018 12:07:46 PM

On the last Friday of May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect in Europe and generated headlines around the globe. GDPR was enacted to unify and fortify the protection of personal data for all EU residents. The regulation applies to all companies that conduct business within the EU and includes the export of personal data beyond EU borders.

At OmniComm Systems, Inc., we have a longstanding commitment to customer privacy and the protection of personal data. This includes data from customers, employees, clinical trial participants, healthcare professionals, investors, business partners and others.

Data Protection

Our privacy policy demonstrates our commitment to the privacy and the protection of any personal information submitted to and hosted at OmniComm Systems.

OmniComm collects, processes and uses personal information in a manner that is consistent with the laws of countries in which the organization does business. Furthermore, data is only collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes detailed in initial agreements and contracts in which the data subject provides consent. Data is not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes.

What’s more, we utilize reasonable and appropriate physical, technical and administrative procedures to safeguard the information we collect and process, and to prevent unauthorized disclosure of data.

GDPR & OmniComm Policies

In support of recent changes to the European Union data protection law, OmniComm made changes to our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy. These are available on our website and set out how we manage and process personal information:

OmniComm has developed a GDPR Compliance Assessment detailing how OmniComm meets all areas of GDPR.
