TalkLife & GDPR 

Our Commitment to You and the Protection of Your Data

TalkLife takes data protection and people’s privacy very seriously and we are committed to continuing to comply with data protection laws.
 

The General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679 EU) (EU GDPR) is the governing legislation for collecting and processing personal data in the EU. It applies to companies based in the EU, as well as to companies around the world who provide or offer goods or services, and who process data from or about people in the EU. Following the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December 2020, most of the EU GDPR was retained in UK law by the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. The retained GDPR is known as the "UK GDPR". The UK GDPR is supplemented by the Data Protection Act 2018.

As a UK based company, all TalkLife activities therefore comply with UK GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018.

 

At TalkLife, we have expanded our tools to help people manage their privacy and understand their choices with respect to their personal data. We have also expanded our data protection team and hired a data protection officer.

We are committed to transparency, control and accountability.

  • Transparency: Our Privacy Policy is the single consolidated place that maps out the ways in which we use data and process people’s personal information. We have sought to ensure our policy is written in easy to understand language enabling our users to be aware of how their data is being used and retained at TalkLife.
     

  • Control: We provide people with controls over how their user account data is being used, how long we keep data and how to remove their content and accounts.
     

  • Accountability: We are accountable for our privacy practices, which includes updating our existing compliance program to ensure that we are adequately documenting our GDPR review and compliance.
