SaneBox’s Preparation for GDPR Compliance

What is the GDPR?

 

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive European data privacy law that imposes a new set of obligations on companies that process EU residents’ personal information. The law provides individuals greater transparency and control of how their personal information is processed, used, and stored. The GDPR becomes effective on May 25, 2018 and applies to all businesses that process and hold the personal data of individuals who are located inside the European Union. The GDPR also applies to organizations that offer goods or services to EU individuals, or that monitor these individuals’ behavior.

Is Email Ever Really Private? Your Questions, Answered

Is Email Ever Really Private_ Your Questions, Answered

There are more ways than ever to communicate at home and work. Despite the prevalence of text messaging, Snapchat, Facebook, Slack, and everything else, email remains one of the commonest ways to pass messages around. When you send email, you might think the contents are private — the only people that will see them are you and the recipients of the message.

We constantly need to login to software and services. Whether it’s your workstation, laptop, phone, social network, or software at work, we need access to dozens of passwords. In fact, research suggests the average person has between 25 and 35 unique logins they need to remember. If you’re not using a password manager, that can be a real problem. It’s no wonder that nearly 40% of people forget a password at least once a week.

Letter from our CEO

We started SaneBox back in 2010 to help people take back control of their email. We had 6 rules that drove us:

 

  1. SaneBox has to be as secure as humanly possible
  2. The customer shouldn’t have to do or learn anything new
  3. SaneBox has to work everywhere people check their email
  4. SaneBox has to get better over time
  5. SaneBox has to be so valuable that people will happily pay for it
  6. Customer data should never be a source of revenue

 

These points are still as important and critical to our mission as the day we started building SaneBox. When we started, the Internet was in the freemium phase – nobody wanted to pay for anything online, and it was very unhip to charge for your web service. But, we thought that thinking was short sighted.  After all, if you are not paying for the product, then you ARE the product.
