As part of our preparation towards GDPR compliance, we have completed a detailed internal review including:
Review of all End-User "Personal Information" stored in the software_DNA system, the justification for storing this information, and which information should be stored in encrypted form. For example, we will no longer store IP address information related to License events
Review and update of our Encryption Key Management policies
Development of new functions in the DNA Control Panel to view and erase "Personal Information"
Review and update of our Information Policy
The following summarizes some of the key GDPR principles and our response / actions:
Explicit consent from the End-User for capturing and storing of "personal information"
It is your reponsibility to ensure your EULA with your End-User includes the personal information that we store while providing our Licensing Management services. See below for our GDPR Policy and details.
End-user must be able to get access to the "personal information" stored by the software_DNA System
End-Users may request from you details on what "Personal Information" you have.
In order to help you in answering these requests, we have provided a new function in the DNA Control Panel View GDPR Info in the Code View screen. A button will appear if the License Code of an ACTIVE product has been activated, and will display the "Personal Information" currently stored by software_DNA for that License. (see below)
Security of personal data
"Personal Information" is stored in encrypted form in the software_DNA system.
Management of Encryption Keys is governed by our Data Security policies and overseen by our Data Protection Officer.
Right to be forgotten
End-Users may request that you erase all "Personal Information" that you retain or that 3rd parties retain on your behalf.
In order to help you in complying with these request, we have provided a new function in the DNA Control Panel that allows you to delete any "Personal Information" of an End-User related to a specific License. You can access this function from the Code View screen by clicking on View GDPR Info (see below).
The License will continue to be ACTIVE, but some restrictions will apply. You also have the option of Banning / Disabling the License.
As stated in our revised "Information Privacy", we are commited to inform our Customers of any breach of "Personal Information" and provide any assistance required for your communication with your customers.
