GDPR and ACIFMA

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a law to protect the data privacy rights of individuals. The purpose of the law is to give registered users or licensees the ability to learn about and manage their personal data stored by organisations. The law goes into effect on May 25, 2018.

ACI Financial Markets Association (ACIFMA) is committed to protecting your personal and confidential data and takes its responsibility for the security of your personal data very seriously.

ACIFMA is a “data processor,”. Our users control the purpose and ends to which we process their personal data. How we do this is outlined in our Privacy Policy. We encourage you to read our Privacy Policy.

 

Your User Data

GDPR defines personal data as any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier. In our Privacy Policy, we outline exactly what user data we store, for what purpose we store the data, and how we guarantee security.

 

Management

We restrict and keep record of the ACIFMA employees who have access to your data. Those who do access it only do as part of their work, ultimately to provide you a better user experience.

At your request, we will delete your account and all associated information.

 

Security

ACIFMA uses the latest internet technologies and strict policies to provide maximum security to registered users or licensees to our services.

ACIFMA works with sub-processors following a contractual agreement and is continuously working closely and monitoring sub-processors for compliance.

We store user data in a highly secured location using an advanced firewall and additional security technology to prevent unauthorized access.

ACIFMA is implementing an annual audit program to ensure long-term compliance.  Any new services will take into account the new requirements for data security.  At the same time, we are looking for the latest solutions in the field of data protection, and will apply them to our processes and infrastructure solutions.
