Pairaphrase became fully GDPR compliant in May of 2018.
What Makes Pairaphrase GDPR Compliant?
1. The Option to Delete Your Account
The option to delete your account and it's history is known as “the right to be forgotten.” The right to be forgotten is a core GDPR component. When you delete your Pairaphrase account, it's like you never existed.
Pairaphrase users can delete their account and their history. When you do, Pairaphrase removes your entire profile, contact information, user history and any data or files you’ve uploaded or accumulated.
None of your information or files is stored in the system after account deletion and we cannot retrieve any data or files.
In short, as if you never existed as a subscriber. Payment history is kept for as long as necessary to be in compliance with IRS regulations and reporting.
2. Requires Customer Consent
GDPR compliance requires users to give consent to the processing and storing of their data. Users can opt out of marketing emails at anytime. Certain transactional emails are necessary for Pairaphrase to operate correctly. All users must receive these emails in order for Pairaphrase to function correctly. These emails are only triggered by user actions when using Pairaphrase.
3. Data Confidentiality and No Return
Pairaphrase does not sell or share any of your data with third parties. We only share data that is required for Pairaphrase to operate correctly. Pairaphrase does not return any translations to our machine translation suppliers.
