Information about General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

If you are located in the European Economic Area (EEA) and your information is collected and used, this section of the Privacy Policy would apply to you. We will explain here how your data is used and why it is collected and maintained to ensure protection and avoid the replication of your data.

What is GDPR?

EU residents need to be aware of GDPR. It is an EU data and privacy protection law which regulates how the data of EU residents is protected. The law helps enhance the amount of control that EU residents have over their own data.

It is important to note that the GDPR is not only relevant to EU-based companies, but also those operating globally. The data of our customers is very important to us regardless of where one might be located. This is the reason why GDPR controls have been implemented as the baseline standard for our global operations.

What is personal data?

Personal data refers to any data of an identified or identifiable individual. A variety of information is covered by GDPR. It is used either on its own or in combination with more information for identifying a person. Personal data is more than just the email address or name of the individual. Some notable examples of personal data include ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical address, IP address, biometric data, genetic data, political opinions, and financial information.

The principles of data protection are mentioned below:

  • The personal data which has been collected can only be processed in a transparent, legal, and fair manner. It can only used as would be expected by the individual.
  • The personal data can be collected for satisfying only the specific purpose and nothing else. The personal data being collected has to be specified.
  • The personal data can only be held for a certain period of time. Then, it should not be discarded.
  • Only the persons mentioned in the GDPR can gain access to the personal data. They also have the authority to copy the data and update, delete, restrict, or move it to somewhere else.

Why is GDPR important?

With the introduction of the GDPR, new requirements of how companies can protect the personal data of individuals that they collected and processed are set. It boosts the stakes for meeting compliance through the improvement of enforcement of laws. Beyond these facts it's simply the right thing to do. Free PDF convert believes that data privacy is extremely important. This is why we have established strong security and privacy practices for going beyond the requirements set by the regulation.

Individual Data Subject's Rights - Data Access, Portability and Deletion

Our goal is to help meet the data rights of our valued customers by following the requirements as set out by the GDPR. Free PDF Convert processes or stores all personal data in fully vetted, DPA compliant vendors. All the personal data and conversations are stored by us for up to 6 years as long as the account has not been deleted. In such a case, all of the data would be disposed according to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service and would not hold data for more than 2 months.

As we are well-aware of our EU-based customers, we strive to offer them with the best platform where they can access, retrieve, update, and remove their data. We've been set up as self service from the start and have always given you access to your data and your customers data. You can count on our customer support team to help you out. They will be happy to answer all of your queries.

California Residents

As per the CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act), we are obligated by law to disclose categories of the personal information collected and used as well as the categories of the sources from which the personal information is collected and the third parties that we share the information is shared.

Under the California law, we also have to communicate the rights of Californian residents as mentioned below:

  • The Right to Know and Access: A verifiable request may be submitted for requesting the information involving the personal information categories collected, used, or shared; the purpose of those categories; the sources of those categories; and the specific personal information collected concerning you.
  • The Right to Receive Equal Service: We cannot discriminate against anyone for exercising their privacy rights.
  • The Right to Delete: A verifiable request can be submitted for closing your account and deleting the personal information that has been collected about you.

You can also request the business not sell consumer personal data if that business sells consumer personal data.

Once you have made a request, we will respond to you within a month. Please contact us in order to exercise any of the rights mentioned above.
