General Data Protection Regulation
On the 25th of May 2018 the European data protection legislation that replaces the existing 1995 EU Data Protection Directive will come into force. This legislation is known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
GDPR strengthens the rights that individuals have regarding personal data relating to them and seeks to unify data protection laws across Europe, regardless of where that data is processed.
For the purpose of the GDPR regulation, Kulmedia Ltd will act as a data processor for any data that has been provided, uploaded or transferred to our servers. Any client uploading this data will be classed as the data controller.
Data Physical Locations
Data provided to Kulmedia Ltd is stored solely in the UK.
Type of Data
GDPR legislation applies to any data that can identity a living person including but not limited to email address, postal address and phone number.
Data Processing Agreements
Any data you delete from our servers will be deleted immediately or should you have backups then within 30 days. On cancellation of services, data will be destroyed within a maximum period of 180 days. Any customer data may be retained for up to 6 years to satisfactory legal obligations.
