You, Bean Me Up, And The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU regulation that expands the protection of personal data of EU citizens. In doing so, it also expands the obligations of organisations who collect or process that data. The goals of the GDPR are to increase transparency and fairness in the handling of individuals’ personal information. Personal data is any information relating to an identifiable individual.
Enforcement of the GDPR starts on May 25, 2018. The Regulation can be viewed here. All organisations need to be aware of their responsibilities and ensure that they are compliant with GDPR by May 25, 2018. Non-compliance can result in hefty fines.
The following information is provided to help you understand general concepts about the GDPR. It is not legal advice, and you should speak to legal counsel regarding the GDPR and how it affects your organisation.
Does the GDPR apply to me?
The GDPR applies to any organisation that is organised in the EU and any organisation that processes personal data of EU citizens.
Organisations are classified as processors or controllers of personal data. Organisations that determine the purpose of the storage or processing of personal information are considered controllers. Organisations that store or process personal data on behalf of another organisation are considered processors. Some organisations may be both.
How does my organisation ensure our compliance?
Will Bean Me Up be compliant with the GDPR by May 25, 2018?
Our opt-in, opt-out, and unsubscribe processes conform to the requirements of the GDPR.
These are just some of the many steps Bean Me Up has taken to meet the data transparency goals of the GDPR. This continues our practice of protecting your data and providing for the legal and secure handling of your information.
The information above is provided to help you understand Bean Me Up’s role as processor of your data. It is not comprehensive and is not legal advice.

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
