Data and GDPR at Sirv

Privacy and security have always been two of the foundations of Sirv’s approach to product development and day-to-day operations. We continuously evaluate all our practices in an effort to safeguard your information as effectively as possible.

In that vein, in regard to new individual privacy rights regulation in the EU – The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) – we’ve updated our Privacy Policy, Terms & Conditions and the options we provide for managing the data you keep in Sirv.

What is GDPR?

On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect. For European citizens, GDPR gives users more power to control their data. Companies that process the personal data of these European citizens must comply with the GDPR regulations.

GDPR outlines specific requirements that these companies must satisfy, as well as specific rights that European citizens can exercise with these companies. Further information on GDPR is available on the European Union’s official website: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection_en.

Data processing agreement

Sirv does not process personal data at present. The IP addresses of visitors that request your files are logged temporarily as part of the HTTP server logs but Sirv holds no personally identifiable information to match those IP addresses against and the IP addresses are not shared with anyone, including you, the Sirv account holder. The HTTP logs are used only to provide aggregated analytics within your Sirv account. Therefore, there is no need to obtain a Data Processing Agreement (DPA) from us. If this changes in future, we will notify you and allow you to create a DPA that you can sign and download online.

Features to support GDPR requirements

Sirv can help you meet your data portability requirements for GDPR. You can easily export data from your account via the download options, permanently delete data through the Sirv web app or completely close your account and delete your files via your Settings page.

Data Protection Officer

Sirv has a Data Protection Officer who you can contact at privacy@sirv.com.

Updates to our Privacy Policy

We’ve added additional language to our Privacy Policy in order to reinforce our commitment to privacy, security, and confidentiality. The privacy policy became effective on May 25, 2018.
