General Data Protection Regulation

At Westlake Software, we are committed to protecting the privacy and data rights of our users in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other applicable data protection laws.

We have taken significant steps to ensure that our data processing practices align with the principles outlined in the GDPR. This includes implementing robust technical and organizational measures to safeguard the personal data we collect, store, and process. Additionally, we regularly review and update our policies and procedures to maintain compliance with evolving data protection standards.

Key elements of our GDPR readiness include:

Data Transparency

We are transparent about how we collect, use, and share personal data, providing clear and concise privacy notices to our users.

Data Minimization

We only collect and process personal data that is necessary for the purposes for which it was obtained, and we do not retain it for longer than is necessary.

Data Security

We employ industry-standard security measures to protect personal data against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.

Data Subject Rights

We respect the rights of individuals under the GDPR, including the rights to access, rectify, erase, restrict processing, and portability of their personal data.

Lawful Basis for Processing

We ensure that our processing activities are supported by a lawful basis as required by the GDPR, such as consent, contract necessity, legal obligation, vital interests, or legitimate interests.

International Data Transfers

When transferring personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we implement appropriate safeguards to ensure the protection of data subjects' rights and freedoms.

Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs)

We conduct DPIAs where necessary to identify and mitigate risks associated with data processing activities that may impact individuals' privacy rights.

Data Breach Response

In the event of a data breach, we have procedures in place to promptly assess and mitigate the impact of the breach and notify the relevant supervisory authorities and affected individuals as required by law.

We are committed to maintaining a culture of privacy and continuous improvement in our data protection practices to ensure ongoing compliance with the GDPR and other relevant regulations.
