GDPR and Schrems II complicate data retention – EntryScape complies with all laws

EU legislation such as the GDPR and numerous court rulings on how to apply the laws make several things clear. Firstly, that data considered sensitive, such as personal data, cannot be stored or shared anywhere not considered legally OK, without consent. Secondly, it is not enough for the data to be physically located in an approved country. A company providing data storage must also not be headquartered in a non-approved country or be subject to the legislation of such a country. Thirdly, it needs to be clarified how some laws should be interpreted and applied.

EntryScape complies with all data retention laws.

MetaSolutions, the company behind the linked data solution EntryScape, has carefully chosen data storage to a German company with high security, and the data centres used are located in the EU and thus have EU-based owners. This means that data storage with EntryScape by MetaSolutions, including personal data about users, is stored in a way that complies with all legislation. While the handling of data securely and legally correct does mean increased costs for MetaSolutions, customers can rest assured that data is handled correctly and safely.
