The EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) came into force across the European Union on 25th May 2018 and brought with it significant changes to data protection law. It requires any data processors and data controls to use the highest-possible privacy settings by default, so that the data is not available publicly without explicit, informed consent, and cannot be used to identify a subject without additional information stored separately.
We have taken all necessary measures to ensure that our products and services fully comply with GDPR. We will try to write in plain language because we want to communicate clearly with you. This document may therefore lack some of the precision of a formally prepared statement drafted by legal professionals, but it still represents our good faith effort to protect the personal data information of our customers.
Our product, CubeBackup, is a backup tool which helps Google Workspace organizations back up their business data to self-hosted storage. We do not store any Google Workspace data for our customers. By using CubeBackup, you are already standing on very solid ground.
