So, it is evident from the title that Rymindr abides by GDPR? But first and foremost, we need to understand what the acronym GDPR stands for and what it is all about. GDPR means General Data Protection Regulation and it’s a pan-EU regulation that carries guidelines on how companies must handle personal data.

GDPR has been the most welcome step vis-à-vis data protection in the last 20 years and is a major monitoring tool for organisations operating out of the EU. As a result of this initiative, people can now decide how their data is going to be used. For every aspect of data protection viz. data handling, documentation, user content and transparency, there are set rules.

So, if Rymindr is GDPR-compliant, what can you expect from the company that will obviously have some of your personal details if it sends notifications to you? The answer is as follows:

  • Rymindr will have a record and keep track of your personal data-processing activities. The company will be accountable for the personal data it handles itself as well as that, which is managed by third parties.

  • You can find out which countries and third parties your data has been shared with. If Rymindr follows GDPR to a tee, it is a given that the company will share your data with only those entities that are also GDPR-compliant.

  • If you give consent for something, it will be recorded and will serve as evidence that the data, if any, was not procured unlawfully. If the data is non-sensitive, your consent will be implied and before any kind of processing, prior consent will be sought.

  • Data protection has now come of age and individuals now have different rights such “right of data access”, “right of data portability” and “right to be forgotten”. You can withdraw your consent whenever you want to. So, if you feel that the data that you shared with Rymindr has served its purpose and is not required anymore, you can ask the company to delete it.

  • If ever there is a data breach, Rymindr will be liable to intimate both you as well as the data protection authorities within 3 days.

  • Lastly, if Brexit is your concern, you need not worry as the British government is planning to implement a legislation that will be on the lines of GDPR.

Rymindr is a path-breaking reminder app that lets you become more organised, streamlined and efficient. And if it adheres to something as significant as GDPR, you no doubt have another key reason to use it on a regular basis.
