Privacy Compliance Solution

Privacy Policy

Introduction

On May 25th 2018 the European Union is introducing new regulations to protect the privacy rights of EU residents by implementing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

New Spark Media is committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of all information provided to us and assisting our clients to do the same. New Spark Media’s Data Protection Officers are available at dataprotection@newspark.ca. Any questions and/or concerns regarding the protection of your data or that of your consumers should be directed to this address.

How New Spark Media is Complying

User privacy is considered from the outset and built into New Spark Media’s mechanisms to recognize users’bright to erasure, right to retrieve and transfer personal information, and the right to know how their personal information is being used. All data is stored on secure servers and users can request their personal information at any time. New Spark Media will only retain and process data as required for the purposes described and consented to. Access to data will be limited to those necessary for such processing.

New Spark Media is proud to be transparent about its processing and storage practices; requests for such information can be sent to the Data Protection Officers.

New Spark Media has effected safeguards to detect any breaches of data and policies for reporting a breach to the appropriate authorities. Users will be notified of data breaches that are likely to result in a risk to their rights and freedoms. New Spark Media employees are familiar with existing and upcoming privacy policies and regular training occurs for continuing education.

How New Spark Media is Helping its Clients Comply

For our clients, as data controllers, product enhancements are being implemented to allow clients to meet the same transparency standards New Spark Media has set for itself. Clients will have an opportunity to work with New Spark Media to customize its platform and ensure any data collected is accompanied by clear and unambiguous consent. Consent will be timestamped on receipt and traceable to a specific purpose and individual. Clients will be able to manage data according to these parameters and perform audits by consent and purpose. These mechanisms will allow clients to easily respond to consumers requesting erasure or access to personal information. Through New Spark Media, clients will have the control necessary to maintain transparency and be GDPR compliant.
