You have likely been hearing about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) recently and we know you probably have a few questions. Here are some details including how it affects your experience with Outfield.

What Is GDPR?

The GDPR is a big change in data protection laws in Europe since the European Union (EU) Data Protection Directive introduced in 1995, also known as Directive 95/46/EC or the Directive. The main goal of the GDPR is to strengthen the security and protection of personal data in the EU and effectively replace the Directive and all local laws relating to it. It's key principles involve improving fairness, transparency, purpose for data collection, data minimization, data accuracy & deletion, security, and accountability. Further, it applies to all US based companies, including Outfield, that do business in the EU.

Outfield's GDPR Commitment

We are big fans of GDPR here at Outfield because it gives our users valuable rights over their personal data. It also helps our team provide an even better level of trust with our users regarding how their data is processed and stored over the internet. Furthermore, we believe GDPR is the new global standard for data protection and we continuously work to maintain GDPR compliance. The Outfield team is committed to always operating in the best interests of our customers and that includes GDPR compliance.

Your Rights Under GDPR

The GDPR grants our users a number of rights for how to handle your personal data. Here is an overview:

Data Access

You have the right to confirm with Outfield whether we are processing your personal data.

Right to Object

You can object at any time to the processing of your personal data.

Data Rectification

You can send us a request to correct or complete your personal data if the data is inaccurate.

Restriction of Processing

You can request that Outfield discontinues access to and modification of your personal data.

Data Portability

You are able to export your data for your team members, accounts, and activity in CSV format so that you can transmit your personal data to another company.

Right to Erasure

This is also known as “the right to be forgotten.” Outfield now allows you to delete your personal data in the settings section of the Outfield web app.

Outfield Security

Another key principle of the GDPR is data security. Here at Outfield, we are committed to inspiring trust and protecting the privacy of our customer’s data. As such, we use industry leading security practices and manage application security so our customers can concentrate on their business. It is this commitment that motivates our decision making every day and our team holds this responsibility in the highest regard.

We are heavily invested in using top tier data centers, 2048 bit Industry Standard SSL, encrypted passwords, token based authentication, and more to provide our users with peace-of-mind regarding their data. For more details on Outfield security, visit our security page.
