This page is prepared to help Scrintals' users understand, and where applicable, comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). The GDPR is a significant change to European data privacy legislation and is in effect since May 15, 2018.
The GDPR's primary aim is to give control to individuals over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.
GDPR’s security and data privacy foundational principles are taken into consideration in every action we take at Scrintal, as an EU based company. Scrintal recognizes the importance of complying with GDPR to advance information security and data privacy of our users.
Below we present several GDPR compliant initiatives we have implemented across our Services:
Security is our top priority. Scrintal processes sensitive and confidential audio and video files every day. We have built security into Scrintal’s every layer of the architecture where applicable.
Our website and tool infrastructure are designed to ensure the safety of your data. We have chosen to use the industry-standard HTTPS (using TLS 1.2) for secure data upload, export and transfer. Scrintal uses data centers by Amazon Web Services (AWS) which offers the highest levels of physical and infrastructure security, certified with ISO 9001, ISO 27001, ISO 27017 and ISO 27018.

We offer our users a robust data privacy, control and security framework as a part of our Data Processing Agreement (“DPA”). This document ensures that users can lawfully permit Scrintal to process the audio and video they upload, as Scrintal abides by the GDPR by ensuring the security of information and storage within the European Economic Area. Our DPA also includes specific provisions to assist users in their compliance with the GDPR.
