Data privacy refers to the right of an individual to have control over how their personal information is collected and used. Many countries around the world have enacted laws that protect the privacy of their residents. These global data privacy laws, including the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), establish rules for the purpose of increasing the amount of control individuals have over their digital data.
Personal data – also known in various countries as personal information or personally identifiable information (PII) – is any information that, alone or taken together, relates to an identified or identifiable individual. This definition is broad and includes not only names and addresses, but national ID numbers, biometric information such as fingerprints, salary, and geolocation information.
Most data privacy laws require transparency about how a company collects information and how that information will be treated. Globalization Partners provides privacy notices to all individuals who share their personal data with the company. These privacy notices include a plain language explanation of how the company uses data, what rights data subjects have related to their data, and how to exercise those rights.
Data subjects enjoy access to their data through Globalization Partners’ proprietary platform and other easy-to-use tools.
Globalization Partners invites data subjects to correct errors in their data if they happen to notice any.
Globalization Partners also enables the right to be forgotten, and to undertake data erasure pursuant with legal guidelines.
Data subjects have an opportunity to restrict use of their data within the company’s platform.
