We are committed to working with customers, partners, and other stakeholders to meet the requirements for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that goes into effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR impacts multiple AppSheet platform stakeholders and we want to make sure you are aware of, and up-to-date on, any changes we introduce in preparation for GDPR compliance.
If you’re a new app creator, app user, vendor, technology partner, or are considering becoming any of those, this page describes our plans and provides other resources that will help you achieve GDPR compliance.
The AppSheet platform has been created with Privacy, Confidentiality, and Security by design. This means that you can create and share apps in a secure way, keeping control of who has access to your data and where your data lives. Since the AppSheet service can be a controller and a processor of personal data, we will continue to keep all platform users informed of how we plan for compliance in both areas of GDPR.
Preparing for GDPR
As part of our GDPR compliance journey, AppSheet has achieved SOC 2, Type 1 compliance. SOC 2 focuses on a business’s non-financial reporting controls as they relate to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system. Additionally, we've performed a personal data audit across the AppSheet technology stack, identifying all parts of the platform that may store personal data, reviewing the privacy commitments of all technology partners, and allowing for data deletion upon request or anonymization where possible.
Thousands of App Creators use AppSheet to deliver mobile apps to their teams, colleagues, customers, and other stakeholders. It's possible that the data captured and displayed through those apps are personal data as defined by GDPR. We want to make sure all stakeholders are aware of the commitments they must have to controlling or processing personal data.AppSheet's help site contains multiple articles that reference data security and privacy. During the months of April and May 2018, we will broadcast multiple communications to our stakeholders to increase awareness around GDPR and recommend that app creators review this site and other resources to make sure their apps, and the data they manage in them, is GDPR-compliant.
