GDPR Compliance

At Digilock, we understand the importance of protecting your data. It’s a big deal. With security at the core of our business, products, and services, we understand the importance of protecting valuables, including your personal information.

This article is designed to provide an understanding about privacy practices within our company and our compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to ensure that the sensitive, confidential, and personal information that we collect and process is handled with care and protected from unauthorized access, disclosure, manipulation, or subject to data breach.

Data Security

There are many components to data privacy compliance with GDPR, including our responsibility to implement systems and processes that protect personal information processed by our company.

Considering security is one of the primary and fundamental components to GDPR compliance, let’s review security related to our business, products, and services. As a security company, maintaining our security practices is a part of our culture. We implement various policies, procedures, systems, security training, and roles and responsibilities to implement and operate our information security program established to safeguard (or protect) our users' data and limit exposure to data breaches.

Our SaaS web application, DigiLink, used for remote administration and management of our 6G network smart lock products, has successfully completed a SOC 2 Type 2 certification and received a SOC report from an independent CPA firm. This provides a professional opinion that we have implemented appropriate internal controls (or processes) for security, availability, and confidentiality for the IT network of our Digilink web application.

What is the importance of the SOC 2 Report?

Our SOC 2 Type 2 report demonstrates that we have implemented appropriate security practices and safeguards for our data processing activities. The SOC 2 examination included working with auditors to evaluate the organization, technical, and procedural controls that we have implemented within our IT network to secure our users' data.

The examination includes inspection of security configurations and procedural documentation that supports our implementation of data security best practices technologically, organizationally and culturally.

We will be conducting our SOC 2 Type 2 examination annually to continue to demonstrate our security practices and our ability to implement appropriate safeguards for protecting our users' sensitive, confidential, and personal information.

SOC 2 Type 2 Report

You can request a copy of our SOC 2 Type 2 report by submitting a request to our Contact Us page. This details all of the above-mentioned security practices for our DigiLink web application.

Data Privacy Compliance and GDPR Compliance

Data protection is very important in our business, and so is GDPR compliance.

These include the implementation of the following technologies, activities, or justifications supporting GDPR compliance within our company:

Where applicable, a data processing agreement will be executed as a part of the transaction to define data processing activities and data privacy practices to be performed by our organization in accordance with documented instructions.

Implementation of Appropriate Technical and Organizational Safeguards (Security)
As mentioned, we have a SOC 2 Type 2 report that speaks to our security practices for protecting our customers' data. These security practices include the implementation of encryption and access controls technologies/ procedures to ensure we protect our data.

Our SOC 2 and GDPR Compliant Third-Party Data ProcessorsWe utilize third-party processors that are compliant with SOC 2 standards and GDPR. Their compliance with these standards and regulations helps our company to protect personal data, including providing guidance and technologies that help us maintain GDPR compliance.

Designated Individual Responsible for GDPR Compliance and a Data Protection Officer (DPO)
We have designated a DPO within our organization, and our DPO works closely with our Executive Management team (President, Vice President, and Legal) to provide oversight and execution of Digilock’s risk management and data security and privacy practices, including GDPR compliance.

We have implemented incident response procedures and identified the appropriate supervisory authority to notify in the event of a data breach, which is a requirement for GDPR compliance.

Appoint a Representative within a European Member State
A GDPR requirement for companies that operate outside of the EU, includes appointing a representative within an EU member state that can communicate with data protection authorities in the event of a data breach. Our EU representative is as follows:
