Dooster and the GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union.

The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.


The GDPR provides the following eight rights for individuals:

  • The right to be informed
  • The right of access
  • The right to rectification
  • The right to erasure
  • The right to restrict processing
  • The right to data portability
  • The right to object
  • Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.


Why the GDPR Applies To You

Any company that stores or processes personal information about EU citizens within EU states must comply with the GDPR, even if they do not have a business presence within the EU. Specific criteria for companies required to comply are:

  • A presence in an EU country.
  • No presence in the EU, but it processes personal data of European residents.
  • More than 250 employees.
  • Fewer than 250 employees but its data-processing impacts the rights and freedoms of data subjects, is not occasional, or includes certain types of sensitive personal data.

What Types Of Privacy Data Does GDPR Protect?

  • Basic identity information such as name, address and ID numbers
  • Web data such as location, IP address, cookie data and RFID tags
  • Health and genetic data
  • Biometric data
  • Racial or ethnic data
  • Political opinions
  • Sexual orientation

Data Activity Roles and Definitions

Under GDPR Dooster in providing a service as a Task and Project Manager cloud application is defined as the Data Processor while you, the Dooster Account owner / user, own the data and are therefore defined as the Data Controller. (Please see Your Obligations as the Data Controller below).

In providing a business service to our Account Owner customers, Dooster is also definable as a Data Controller – in that we hold personal information on our Account Owner customers. In this regard we are fully GDPR compliant. (Details below).

The following lists the respective data activity obligations:

Our Obligations (Dooster) as the Data Processor

Any company that stores or processes personal information about EU citizens within EU states must comply with the GDPR.

We are the Data Processor. This is defined as the legal person, or other body, which processes personal data on behalf of the Data Controller.

The following includes how we guarantee the eight rights for individuals:

  • The right to be informed
  • The right of access
  • The right to rectification
  • The right to erasure
  • The right to restrict processing
  • The right to data portability
  • The right to object
  • Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling must store your data securely, and provide a service that allows you to comply with the GDPR.

Under the GDPR, Dooster has a general obligation to implement technical and organisational measures to show that we have carefully considered and integrated data protection into our processing activities.

We have carried out a full audit of our activities in this regard, and implemented new procedures that adopt  a ‘privacy by design’ approach.


Security and Encryption

Where Your Data is Held data is held on Amazon Web Services* and Hetzner, an ISO27001 certified data center in Germany. Both are GDPR compliant and require strict access rules. (* AWS has obtained approval from EU data protection authorities, known as the Article 29 Working Party, of the AWS Data Processing Addendum and Model Clauses to enable transfer of data outside Europe, including to the U.S. )

In addition our team closely monitors any unauthorized system access, and has put in place multiple preventive measures to reduce the attack surface on our systems and services.

Dooster developers are well educated in software and network security.

Whenever Dooster develops a new feature, security is the absolute priority when designing it and / or the architecture around any such a system.

We ensure security by always using TSL protection.

We conduct a regular internal audit to determine what data we have, how we use it and where the data goes.

All our data security, handling and processing arrangements are set out in written policies and procedures which we update regularly.

GDPR Validated third parties

 We have validated all our other third-party suppliers to ensure they comply with GDPR.


We have a protocol for handling user access requests. This involves our confirming the data listed in the “What Data Do We Hold” section – see below –  and access to the Dooster user account – provided the account is active ie being paid for and that the account and the data within has not been deleted due to non-payment for the service.

Dooster gives account and coordinator members highly controllable permissions / access powers for their account users including quick and easy removal of user’s profile information.

Data Controllers are liable for their compliance with the GDPR and must only appoint Data Processors who can provide ‘sufficient guarantees’ that the requirements of the GDPR will be met and the rights of data subjects protected.

  • are not occasional; or
  • could result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals; or
  • involve the processing of special categories of data or criminal conviction and offence data.
