The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new European privacy law that went into effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR replaces the EU Data Protection Directive and will apply a single data protection law throughout the EU.
Data protection laws govern the way that businesses collect, use, and share personal data about individuals. Among other things, they require businesses to process an individual’s personal data fairly and lawfully, allow individuals to exercise legal rights in respect of their personal data (for example, to access, correct or delete their personal data), and ensure appropriate security protections are put in place to protect the personal data they process.
We have taken steps for our European students and applicants to ensure that we are compliant with the GDPR as of May 25, 2018.
We act as a data controller under GDPR for the EU customer information we collect to operate Microverse.
We store data that customers have given us voluntarily. For example we collect and store contact information, such as name and email address, when customers start our application process or seek support help. We may also collect other identifying information from our customers, such as IP addresses.
To exercise your Right to Erasure or desire to Opt-out, you can delete your Microverse account at any time. This will remove our record of your email address, name, and all other personal data. This action is immediate and not reversible. If you wish to delete your account, please write in to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To exercise your Right to Portability and export your personal data, please email email@example.com.
