European Union-United States Data Privacy Regulations

Skyline Software Systems, Inc. is monitoring recent developments related to compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework (as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information) governing the flow of data between the European Union (EU) to the United States for commercial purposes. Company is also monitoring potential developments concerning the U.S. Clarifying Lawful Overseas use of Data (CLOUD) Act and this legislation’s potential conflict with EU data protection laws. Company will continue to monitor other domestic privacy legislations, such as California’s Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) which should affect our Privacy Policy in the future and how it will interact with other international privacy regulations.

European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a significant change to European Union (EU) privacy law, took effect. The regulation prioritizes an individual’s right to control their personal information. Company is committed to compliance with the GDPR by providing privacy protection to all our customers. How GDPR applies to Company?

Company is both a controller and processor of personal information, and that information is stored solely in the United States. We control the personal information of those with whom we directly interact. Examples include end-users who create SKYLINE solution Accounts or fill out a form on our website. We are a processor of personal information for other controller organizations (i.e., our customers) who have entrusted us with processing personal information that they control. Examples of this include customer’s data that is uploaded to our cloud service platform, and contact information provided to us for a customer organization.

The GDPR lists legal bases that allow controllers (like Company) to process personal information, such as contractual necessity, legal obligation, vital interests, public interest, legitimate interest, and consent. Most of the service we provide to customers would be considered a contractual necessity or a legitimate interest. In other cases (e.g., web browsing tracking, marketing), we obtain direct affirmative consent before collecting any personal information. Company is committed to protecting your personal information from any attacks or data breaches. We have implemented appropriate security controls throughout our business systems. In the event of a data breach, we will honor the GDPR requirements for notification.
