Powerbox INC has proactively taken steps to align with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), reinforcing our commitment to data protection and transparency in handling customer communications and data usage.

Understanding GDPR at Powerbox INC

What is GDPR?

Implemented on May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an extensive legal framework from the EU to enhance personal data protection and individual rights. This regulation introduces unified data processing guidelines across the EU.

Does GDPR Impact You?

Likely, yes. If your operations involve processing or holding any data about individuals within the EU, GDPR's scope applies to you, irrespective of your geographical location.

Powerbox INC's Journey to GDPR Readiness

Our team has undertaken significant efforts to align with GDPR mandates. This involved a comprehensive revamp of our data handling and operational processes to adhere to legal requirements, prioritizing customer interests without compromising our ability to innovate and expand.

Key Measures Undertaken:

We've engineered solutions to facilitate GDPR compliance for our users; for data exportation needs, contact us directly. We've implemented mechanisms for the irreversible deletion of user-specific, course-related, and institutional data upon request.

Automatic data deletion protocols have been set up for inactive user accounts over 24 months.
