On May 25, 2018, the European Union (the “EU”) implemented a new data privacy and protection regulation, called the General Data Protection Regulation and the United Kingdom (the “UK”) post Brexit implemented the UK General Data Protection Regulations (collectively referred to as the “GDPR”). This regulation aims to standardize data protection laws across the EU and the UK and lay down standards to be observed worldwide while processing of personal data originating in the EU and the UK. The GDPR also has a strong emphasis on affording individuals stronger, more consistent rights to access and control their personal information.
At Peoplebox Inc. (“we”, “us”, “our”, “Peoplebox”), we take compliance of data privacy and security regulations very seriously. For the GDPR, we are working diligently to ensure that we are compliant with the rules laid out by the law. In the following sections, we have outlined our approach to comply with the GDPR.
Peoplebox and GDPR Compliance
Peoplebox owns this website and has developed a B2B software “Peoplebox” (the “Platform”). Our Platform is a software that offers companies an effective goal setting tool, OKRs, performance management & employee engagement. Our Platform is used and explored by our clients (existing and prospective) and their employees. We at Peoplebox process personal information of our clients (existing and prospective) and their employees in the capacity of a Data Controller (for any personal information submitted on the Website) and in the capacity of a Data Processor (for any personal information provided by our clients and their employees when they use our Platform).
We have performed a company-wide information discovery exercise to identify and assess what personal information we hold, where it comes from, how and why it is processed, and to whom it is disclosed.

Record Keeping as per the GDPR

We at Peoplebox have implemented internal measures to minimize the risk of any data security breach happening.
