Paylogic adheres to the GDPR legislation and would like to help you as well to comply with your own responsibilities.

Principles of GDPR
Personal data constitutes any form of information which directly or indirectly involves or relates to a natural person. The rules of GDPR are applicable to the processing of personal data, be it fully or partially, depending on the automation. In addition, the legislation is applicable to the personal data included in the database. This article describes the core principles of the GDPR in more detail.
The GDPR is supported by eight important principles when processing personal data. According to these principles the information should:
- Be processed in a fair, lawful and transparent manner.
- Be processed for specific, legitimate purposes.
- Be adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purpose of the processing.
- Be accurate and up to date.
- Be stored no longer than necessary
- Be processed in accordance with the rights of the persons involved.
- Be protected in a fitting manner.
- Not be transferred outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), unless that country or area also ensures an adequate level of protection.
