If a data breach occurs, there are rules as to which processes should be initiated in this case, and in which form the supervisory authorities should be informed. In Incident Response process, the areas of responsibility have been determined, the technical procedure for rectifying the data breach has been defined, and the communication path to the supervisory authorities has been described, so that the supervisory authorities can be informed within 72 hours without any problems arising.
During the development of any technology or any new product, Black Crow has taken data privacy into account in the design approach right from the start. Our goal is to minimize the quantity of personal data to be collected and to reduce the scope of data processing. As part of this we stay away from any non-pseudonymous data other than IP addresses, and we avoid collecting sensitive data. Easily accessible data protection policies ensure transparency.
