GDPR Content & Our New Privacy Portal

Introduction of our new Privacy Policy in reference to the changes to GDPR and NDB

You may have noticed a recent influx of emails from various online platforms and services you use containing updates to their Privacy Policies and Data Security Processes.

These updates are being made due to various changes in legislation across the globe such as Australia’s “Mandatory Notifiable Data Breach (NDB)” or Europe’s “General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)” .

World Manager has also been working behind the scenes to ensure we are prepared for these changes. 

To help we’ve provided a summary of these changes below but have also created a World Manager Privacy Portal that contains information regarding Privacy, GDPR Compliance and security. If you are not familiar with GDPR, please head over to the World Manager Privacy Portal to learn more.

Notifiable Data Breach (NDB) Update

For those brands operating in Australia, the NDB scheme has been in effect since February 22nd, 2018. The NDB scheme stipulates that in the event of an eligible data breach, it is likely to result in 'serious harm'; For individual(s) whose personal information is involved and relevant, authorities are notified by World Manager within an appropriate timeframe. 

World Manager has a Data Breach Response Plan in place that was developed in accordance with both NDB and GDPR requirements. If you require a copy of this document, please send your request to privacy@worldmanager.com.  

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) Update

Our brands have users accessing our platform in over 50 countries worldwide, including Europe, and as such are understandably trying to ensure they and their suppliers comply with GDPR requirements.

World Manager plays a part in your GDPR compliance as a “Data Processor”, and as such we have been working towards this over the past few months. To assist us with this process, we commissioned the services of Information Security experts to perform an independent Gap Analysis against the GDPR for the World Manager platform.  The good news is that the World Manager platform already contains many of the controls and functionality that GDPR requires for both our brands and their users, however for any partially compliant or non-compliant areas, we have since been working on recommendations in order to achieve compliance.

If you wish to know more about this process, please refer to our GDPR Compliance Statement via the World Manager Privacy Portal.

Privacy Policy Update

We have updated our Privacy Policy according to all relevant GDPR and NDB requirements. This new policy is effective immediately and can also be accessed via the World Manager Privacy Portal or from the footer of the desktop version of your platform labelled 'Privacy Information'.

If you have any further questions on any of the above, please don't hesitate to contact us at privacy@worldmanager.com
