At Dartfish we believe technology can make athletes better, teams stronger, officials fairer and sport safer.
Similarly, we also believe that your personal data should be protected and secured, and therefore we have consistently met the highest standards when it comes to data protection over the years.
As such we welcome the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), valid as of May 25, 2018, which strengthen the security and protection of personal data in the EU.
In 2016, the European Union (EU) approved a new privacy regulation called the General Data Protection Regulation commonly known as the GDPR. It’s a mandatory ruling that applies to all companies that collect the data and information of EU individuals. The GDPR is designed to strengthen the security and protection of personal data in the EU, as well as provide businesses with a structured framework on how to collect, process, use, and share personal data. GDPR relies on the following principles:
The GDPR also introduces two parties when it comes to collecting and processing personal data: data controllers and data processors.
A data controller governs the purposes and ways that personal data is processed. Dartfish customers, be they organizations or individuals, are data controllers.
Dartfish is consequently considered in the new GDPR as data processor in the sense that it will process your personal data and is responsible to make sure that all processors with whom it deals will be GDPR compliant.
Over the last months, Dartfish teams worked to review and ensure our way of operating and handling your personal data is fully compliant with GDPR. We also reviewed all our systems and partners to ensure they were also meeting GDPR standards.
Among other things, we have taken the following steps:
Over the months to come, we will continue to monitor best practices in the application of GDPR to further improve our processes and products within this new regulation.
