GDPR Compliance

The general data protection regulation was introduced by the EU since 25 May 2018. It is an important step forward in extending the privacy rights of European citizens and imposes new obligations on organisations that process personal data, irrespective of the countries in which they are located. For more details on this law, we encourage you to visit the ICO website.

Conformity

Foster would like to assure our employees, our partners, our customers and our stakeholders that we are committed to complying with GDPR compliance and that we have dedicated the necessary resources in place to ensure our compliance.

We analysed the requirements of the GDPR and improved our processes, controls and documentation as needed to ensure our compliance. We have incorporated the principle of "confidentiality first" into our work culture, understanding that all our users are concerned and that the protection of their data is paramount. Data encryption and access control are key techniques that guarantee our customers that their data, especially user data, is secure.

Data breach notification

The General Data Protection Regulation requires us as data controllers, or any company acting as processors of our data to document any breaches of personal data in an internal registry. If the incident poses a risk to the privacy of those concerned, we will notify the incident to the relevant governing body within 72 hours of becoming aware.
