ePrivacy Seal

ePrivacyseal GmbH awarded Starmind with the ePrivacy Data Protection Seal following an in-depth audit of privacy and security measures implemented by Starmind. The audit was carried out by two independent third parties - a Swiss law firm MME and a Swiss security company InfoGuard - using the criteria catalog provided by ePrivacyseal GmbH. This audit covers the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for digital products. The catalogue of criteria for the certification is being continuously adapted to the interpretation of the GDPR and other data protection laws.privacy seal

Please note that as of now, it is not possible to obtain an official privacy certification according to the Article 42 of GDPR. Nevertheless, the ePrivacy Seal is at best aligned on all requirements and Starmind will strive to update our privacy certification to the official one as soon as it will be made available by the European Commission, Member States and the European Data Protection Board.
