GDPR Notes

Previous  Next |  Direct link to this topic

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU.

 

The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

 

It becomes enforceable from 25 May 2018.

 


 

It is to the best of Boyum IT Solutions A/S ability that B1 Usability Package and it's productivity package modules adhere to privacy by design as the add-on do not store any personal data beyond the SAP Business One database itself but below are references to how B1 Usability handles its data

 

General

All configured data are stored in the SAP Business One database itself and will not leave the customers system. It is the people responsible for the SAP Business One environment that is responsible for this data.

 

As B1 Usability Package is a configuration tool almost all data stored are not customer specific. The Add-on do however often store primary keys (like BP Codes) in its tables and in the case of the module "Recurring Invoices" it also store names of customers.

 

We have a few features/modules that communicate with online services and these are listed below but none of these contain personal information.

 

License System

Our online license check will at start-up of the add-on communicate with https://portal.boyum-it.com/LicenseKey. During this call, we send the following information in order to verify you have a valid license

Installation + System Number

DB Name

Number of SAP Users and assigned B1UP users

Database server name

 

It is possible to block this call (via normal firewall) and work with an offline license key, without interruption

 

Feedback System

The add-on has an optional Feedback system that on add-on shutdown and in case of errors send anonymous data to Boyum's internal Feedback servers. It sends the following data to us:

This module communicates with https://mailchimp.com via MailChimp's API. The customer decides what information is sent but first name/last name is the default.

This module has the optional option (off by default) to communicate with various online providers of data. The module only send search-requests to these providers (often a company's or person's name) and receive a result back that customer can choose to store in the SAP Business One database. If you use these providers you can contact them in order to see their stance on the GDPR Regulation.
