GDPR compliance

What is GDPR?

The European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be applicable as of May 25th, 2018 in all member states to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe.

GDPR Data protection by design and by default

As a controller and processor Docsify implements appropriate technical and organizational measures for ensuring that, by default, only personal data which are necessary for each specific purpose of the processing are processed.

Docsify implements measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, including inter alia as appropriate:

  • the pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data;
  • the ability to ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems and services;
  • the ability to restore the availability and access to personal data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident;
  • a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organizational measures for ensuring the security of the processing.

What does ‘processing’ mean?

‘Processing’ of personal data includes “collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction,” as in Article 4 (2) of the regulation.

What kind of a role Docsify has in data protection?

Docsify is defined as:

1) data controller in relation to Docsify’s users and email lists subscribers;

2) data processor in relation to the data owners whose personal data is uploaded to Docsify and used in emails sent via Docsify by its users.

It means that as a company, we oversee a couple of matters:

  • Docsify needs to inform its users and email lists subscribers whenever a third party takes part in processing their personal data.
  • Docsify is obliged to immediately inform the user in case a person from the user’s prospect list contacts Docsify to stop the outreach
  • Docsify informs about the ‘right to be forgotten’ and the ‘right to assist in data deletion’ on a special request. As a Docsify’s user or an email list subscriber, you may request your personal data change or deletion.
  • Docsify will address any violation of GDPR submitted at support[at]

How Docsify’s users can change or remove their personal data from

To change or delete any personal data, Docsify’s users should contact the support team at support[at]
