Odin Company and the General Data Protection Regulation
Since January 2016, GPDR has been given a stricter interpretation. The General Data Protection Regulation includes the duty to report data leaks, and to comply with 24 other statutory obligations.
Odin Company fully subscribes to the importance of GPDR and has reported the existence of the ODC database to the Dutch authority in charge of the Dutch Data Protection Act.
Odin Company actively fulfils the requirements of the law and has incorporated GPDR into the ODC software wherever necessary.
For example, any ODC candidate undertaking a refresh measurement will have to give permission in advance to re-use the first measurement. We will also request permission from the candidate before releasing the outcome of the first measurement to an ODC certified professional.
All our data is double-encrypted to prevent hackers having access to any personal data.
Different authorization levels have been incorporated into our ODC software system. This means that a consultant can view only the personal data and the measurements of his or her own candidates.
Odin Company has an agreement with all its resellers, in which the requirements of GPDR are clearly translated into workable agreements.
