Data privacy with Zetafax
On 25 May 2018, a new European privacy law took effect. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) establishes strict global privacy requirements governing how personal data is managed and protected whilst respecting individual choice no matter where data is sent, processed, or stored.
GDPR tightens requirements on companies which control or process personal data for individuals. They standardise and extend the data protection legislation which was previously enacted by individual EU member countries.
The regulations include a range of requirements to ensure that companies only store and use personal data for individuals where there is a valid business requirement to do so, and that such data is stored securely.
Provided Zetafax is configured to restrict access to fax data as described below, then it can be used in a manner which is fully compliant with the GDPR regulations. However companies acting as data controllers for personal data should identify the types of data which they store and use, and ensure that their internal controls and processes for handling this data are robust.
