Getting ready for the GDPR

Europe's General Data Protection Regulation is a set of measures to enhance EU user privacy rights. By May 25, 2018, GDPR will become a fact! Learn how pCloud's getting ready

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation is a unified framework of data privacy rules, brought by the European Parliament.
It imposes strict regulations on how organizations operating in the EU collect, store and manage personal information.

How the GDPR expands your personal privacy:

Breach Notification
Get real-time notifications from your service provider, in case of a data breach
Right to Access
Confirm how your personal information is processed, where and for what purpose
Right to be forgotten
Have all your personal information deleted from a service and stop further dissemination

At pCloud, we respect and protect your privacy.

Our Legal and Security teams are dedicated to making sure pCloud's taking all the necessary steps to meet full GDPR compliance.

Data protection

We have already undergone the required procedures to prove the quality of our Quality Management and Data Management Systems. Our dedicated team of security experts constantly monitors and improves our security policies to help protect your data. Your data is stored on our servers for as long as you use pCloud, and you have the opportunity to delete your account at any moment in time.

Client-side Encryption

Encryption has become a benchmark for security. Client-side encryption allows you to lock your files before they leave your device. In pCloud Crypto, your data is already encrypted upon transfer, eliminating the chance of exposure to third-party applications and unauthorized access.

Zero-knowledge privacy

Neither pCloud as a service provider, nor any authority or service will ever have access to your encrypted files. We do not store your Crypto Pass on our servers, which means that you're the one in charge.

We’ll make sure to perform any additional steps and requirements, in order to achieve full GDPR compliance.
