GDPR Compliance & OwnBackup

As a global SaaS backup company with customer that rely on the OwnBackup service in almost every country in the world, protecting the backups and personal data of our customers has always been our priority. Supporting our clients in complying with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) demonstrates our ongoing commitment to security and privacy. As a Data Processor under GDPR, we recognize our responsibilities within the Saas Backup space. The OwnBackup service has always focused on privacy, security, and data protection - and this is perfectly aligned with the goals of GDPR.

While GDPR does not introduce significant, new requirements to OwnBackup’s privacy and security practices, we’ve been hard at work to ensure not only full compliance, but also to provide tools to help our customers meet their Data Controller-related compliance objectives for their SaaS backups.

Ways We Support Customers in GDPR Compliance of their backups:

Data Processing Addendum incorporating GDPR principles

The OwnBackup DPA ensures that any transfer of SaaS backups containing personal data outside of the European Union in connection with your OwnBackup service will be performed in compliance with the GDPR.

Data Security & Privacy
