We've taken all reasonable steps to ensure that as a data processor QuickEmailVerification is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). That means as the best email verification service, we keep the data you process with us fully secure.
Now, let's dive into the details.
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a regulation in the law of the European Union (EU) that is meant to protect the privacy of EU citizens.
The GDPR was brought into force with two objectives: to get the control of personal data back in the hands of the people, and to simplify and streamline various data protection regulations prevalent in the various countries of the EU.
The GDPR is effective from May 25th, 2018.
Any organization that processes personal data of EU citizens is required to comply with the GDPR, location of the organization notwithstanding.
The GDPR defines, among other things, three key terms:
Data Controller is a natural or legal entity that determines the purpose and means of processing of personal data.
Data Processor means a natural or legal entity that processes personal data on behalf of the Data Controller.
A Data Subject is any person whose personal data is being collected, stored or processed.
QuickEmailVerification is both a Data Controller in our role with our own customers, and a Data Processor in our role to help our customers process their customer data (End User Data).
QuickEmailVerification is fully committed to remain GDPR compliant. To ensure compliance in our role as Data Controller and Data Processor, we have reviewed our internal practices and policies and updated and modified them wherever necessary. The following overview of several important things describes how we have ensured the compliance.
QuickEmailVerification offers a Data Processing Addendum (DPA) for our customers collecting personal data from data subjects in the EU. The DPA covers the contractual terms that meet the GDPR requirements. If you would require to have a copy of the DPA about our role as a Data Processor, please write to us at .
Email addresses are the only data we process on your behalf. Our role in processing your data is limited to the extent of providing you our email verification services.
When you upload one or more emails in our system for verification, our role is that of a Data Processor. As your Data Processor, we 'process' the email addresses personal data that you provide to us and return the verification result to you.
This is how it works:
Your email lists are accepted and returned through secure connections. While processing, your email addresses are stored in secure servers.
With the kind of security we have, data breach won't happen easily. Despite that, we have our internal Breach Management Policy. This internal policy has been updated in response to the GDPR and other relevant data privacy regulations. In the event of suspected data breach, our team will follow this policy.
If you collect personal data (in our case, email addresses) of EU residents, the GDPR requires you to be able to give these residents control over their data. To help you honor your responsibilities, we have a self-help system in place.
As a Data Processor, we provide you the following features help you comply with the GDPR:
As long as your data remains on our platform, it will be stored encrypted for complete security. After processing your email lists, you can download your reports and remove your data permanently from QuickEmailVerification platform anytime. Also we have strict data retention policy in place, according to which email list data uploaded on our service will be automatically and permanently removed(if not removed by you) after 90 days.
At QuickEmailVerification, we process your data for the limited and specific purpose of providing email verification services. Customers of QuickEmailVerification can access, update, retrieve and remove their personal data.
At QuickEmailVerification, we take data privacy very seriously. That's why we strongly believe the GDPR is a positive initiative to protect the rights of data subjects. Should you have any questions regarding the GDPR or data privacy, feel free to email us at .
