The GDPR compliance

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is an important piece of legislation that is designed to strengthen and unify data protection laws for all individuals within the European Union. The regulation will become effective and enforceable on the May 25, 2018.

The purpose of this page is to set out for our customers how YouScan is approaching the GDPR and data privacy. If you have any questions that are not answered on this page, please get in touch with your customer manager.

Does the GDPR apply to YouScan`s services? – The GDPR applies to the processing of personal data. Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. YouScan offers a variety of services, each of which requires a different analysis under the GDPR.

Does YouScan comply with the GDPR? – Yes.

YouScan dedicated internal resources to the GDPR well before the deadline. We did this because we value our customers (and their customers) rights to privacy. Compliance with and to international law and regulations are critical to us.

What is the legal basis on which YouScan processes personal data for its Analytics Services? – The primary legal basis on which YouScan processes personal data when performing the Analytics Services is the legitimate interests of the data controller. This legal basis requires a balancing of the legitimate interests of the data controller with the benefits or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which need the protection of personal data. The data that YouScan processes from Services are all publicly available – and made available – by the particular social media author him or herself. YouScan therefore believes that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of data subjects are not prejudiced or overridden in the context of its processing of social media data that is (1) publicly available and (2) can be made private at anytime by the social media author him or herself. The social media authors have significant levels of control over the availability of their personal data on the underlying websites, including (e.g.) setting their Twitter account to private.
