What is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation, known as the GDPR, was passed by the European Union in 2016. These regulations give EU citizens more control over their personal data that businesses use and store. The law went into effect on May 25, 2018.
The three main principles discussed in this new regulation are transparency, control and accountability of storing and processing a customer’s data.
Refersion As Data Controller
As a controller, Refersion stores our merchants’ and our Marketplace affiliates’ data such as names, emails, phone number, and credit card information for billing purposes. This data is strictly used to provide services and communicate important updates relating to our software application. The data is stored within our cloud hosting infrastructure.
Refersion As Data Processor
As a processor we handle customers’ transaction data, such as sales details, on behalf of Refersion’s merchants and clients to provide commission calculation, tracking, and order attribution services.
How do I access, erase, restrict or rectify data within Refersion?
Merchants, please contact your Refersion account manager or email us at [email protected]. The team can point you to the relevant features, such as deleting affiliates, help remove transaction data, etc.
Will Refersion enter into Data Processing Agreements with its merchants?
Refersion has a default DPA for merchants. Please visit refersion.com/dpa for a copy to review and execute.
We are also happy to review DPAs from our Enterprise customers. Please email [email protected] with your request to help kick-off the process.
