As some of you might be aware, the European Union’s strict new rules around customer data go into effect today. GDPR or the General Data Protection Regulation requires businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens and mandates that they are allowed to access the data businesses have on them, modify it or even choose to have it deleted.

As a responsible business based in the EU and catering to both European and global users, SamMobile has duly updated its policies to ensure GDPR compliance. We urge you to read our updated Terms & Conditions and Privacy & Cookies policy to get a better understanding of this change.

Three things to keep in mind

The updated policies are easy to understand so just give them a once over so that you are fully aware of what data SamMobile collects, what we do with it and how we protect it. SamMobile does not disclose your personal data to third parties. The three main things that you should keep in mind with regards to our GDPR EU compliance are the following:

1. Right to be forgotten (deletions)

GDPR gives users the right to be forgotten which in simple terms means that they can request businesses to erase any personal data they have. We are fully compliant with this and have set up [email protected] for data removal requests from readers who have an account on SamMobile.

2. Right to portability (exports)

Users also have the right to request to receive an exported file of their personal data. Account holders can send an email at [email protected] for this purpose.

3. Right to rectification (modifications)

Account holders on SamMobile also have the right to modify their data. It’s self-service through https://www.sammobile.com/forum/profile.php?do=editprofile.

Please do go through the updated policies linked above. If you have any additional queries about the policies, contact us directly at [email protected]
