What is the GDPR and How it Affects RoasRaptor.com Customers

On May 25, 2018, The European Union enforces a new data privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). A primary aim of the GDPR is to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach it.

Any company that collects or processes personal data of persons in the EU falls under the scope of the GDPR, even if the company has no physical presence in the European Union.

This means that most businesses with a global or online presence, including RoasRaptor.com customers are affected. LEARN MORE

How does RoasRaptor.com Prepare for the GDPR?

Collection of Personal Data

We enable our users at the account level to opt in for real-time IP obfuscation and unique Device ID blanking for all EU countries.

IP obfuscation (replacing the last octet of the IP with a 0) currently exists within the platform for German IPs, and will be expanded to include all EU countries.

Data Collection and Retention Policies:

With data minimization principles in mind, we’ve made the following changes:

  • IP addresses for EU countries are stored obuscated.
  • All log-level reporting will have a 12-month rolling retention period.
  • Note: these retention window changes will only impact the Conversion Report and Click Logs. All Stats Report queries may still be available beyond these retention windows,
  • Data Deletion Process: The measures that are required by articles 17, 30 and art. 32 para. 4 GDPR. include:

Physical Access Control

Our physical data centers are secure. Security measures include having security officers onsite, monitoring and alarm systems, video/CCTV monitors and much more. No person, not even a member of RoasRaptor.com, has self-determined access to the servers.

Tools in place to protect unauthorized access, usage or transmission of data. The data cannot be changed or deleted by unauthorized persons during transmission.

Any data is hashed as early as possible. The processing of personal data happens in a way that the data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without additional information being provided.
