The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new European privacy law that goes into effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR will apply a single data protection law throughout the EU and govern the way that businesses collect, use, and share personal data about individuals.
Picter treats the security of your data with highest priority. We are committed to providing an environment that is safe and secure to all of our customers. Compliance with data privacy, guarantee of highest security standards and transparency of data processing are therefore essential to our service. On this page you will learn more about GDPR, how Picter implements the new requirements that come with GDPR, and which processes and documentations we therefore offer to you.
Any information related to a person, that can be used to directly or indirectly to identify a person is considered as private data. Examples are a name, an email address or bank details. More information on this can be found here.
GDPR regulates the processing by an individual, a company or an organization of personal data relating to individuals in the EU. Picter is a European company with its main office in Germany.

Under GDPR, Picter operates as a ‘data controller’. A data controller determines the purposes for which and the means by which personal data is processed. As a data controller Picter is responsible for, and is able to demonstrate compliance with, the principles relating to processing of personal data. Since Picter operates as ‘data controller’ we are not required to provide a Data Processing Agreement (DPA).
We are fully aware of our responsibility as a data controller and we do our best to meet the highest security and transparency standards.
