Data Protection & Security on DOYOU
We consider consent, data privacy, and transparency a top priority. Global initiatives such as the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are important steps to bring them to the center. Bringing the power to control personal information that we and other businesses store into the hands of you, the user, are an important pillar in building a service and community like DOYOU.
Protecting your data is built into the core of our service. We only gather and store information that is absolutely necessary to offer our service, and we only do this with your consent. That’s why we are committed to complying with the privacy, security, and data protection goals of GDPR and beyond.
To accomplish full GDPR compliance, we have set up an internal compliance team that has been working with external specialists to assess our requirements and roll out the required changes.
Here’s an overview of what the steps we have taken to ensure your data is safe and in your hands.
