GDPR, hIPPA AND popia.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)


We connect people across organizations, around the World and to every application in the Cloud, therefore security and compliance is of utmost importance to our clients.


CloudINX places great importance on GDPR and POPIA regulations, which came into effect on May 25, 2018, as they protect individuals' right to personal data and privacy. As a global service provider, we have implemented strict GDPR-compliant security policies to ensure the highest level of security for our clients. We adhere to internationally recognized security procedures and standards that focus on people, processes, and technology. We have implemented precise controls for our partner network and data center providers, including measures for the physical security of assets used for storing or accessing information. Our security measures are designed to meet the guidelines of these regulations, providing our clients with peace of mind that their data is protected..

.Who does the GDPR affect?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to not only organizations located within the EU, but also those outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to, or monitor the behavior of EU data subjects.

. What are the penalties for non-compliance?

Organizations that breach GDPR rules may be fined up to 4% of their annual global turnover or €20 Million, whichever is higher. It is worth noting that both data controllers and processors are subject to these rules. This means that data processors may be directly liable in some cases, such as in the event of a data security breach. Data subjects may also hold both controllers and processors responsible if the controller is at fault.

. What constitutes personal data?

Personal data refers to any information that can be used to identify a person, either directly or indirectly. This includes but is not limited to a person's name, photo, email address, bank details, posts on social media, medical records, or computer IP address.

We are further enhancing our data security by implementing more specific policies, procedures, and processes that are certified to meet the highest industry standards for data security.
