All you need to know about using Sine in the EU
As an organisation focused on earning our customers’ trust and handling their documents with care, Sine has developed a strong compliance culture and robust security safeguards. Sine’s GDPR compliance efforts leverage these assets.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in May 2018 and replaced the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC.
Once the GDPR came into effect on 25 May 2018, all companies processing and holding the personal data of subjects residing in the EU were required to comply, regardless of location. Sine has updated its terms of service, privacy policies and processes to be fully GDPR compliant well in advance of this deadline.
European Union (EU) data protection laws regulate the transfer of EU customer personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA), which includes all EU countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway. The EU Model Clauses are EU approved standardised contractual clauses which ensure that any personal data leaving the EEA will be transferred in compliance with EU data-protection laws.
Sine has put in place operational processes necessary to meet the requirements of the Model Clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors. Sine Technologies Limited has entered into the Model Clauses with Sine Group Pty Ltd. Sine Technologies Limited is the exporter and Sine Group Pty Ltd is the importer.
