Privacy and security
When downloading and store your driver’s smart card and tachograph data, you must be able to assume that privacy and security are guaranteed. At TachoByte, privacy and security are just as important as executing our solution itself. Therefore, it goes without saying that we have taken various measures to guarantee this:
- Encrypted data exchange: when downloading the tachograph and driver’s smart card, we use an encrypted connection. This means that malicious parties cannot intercept your data.
- Data stored in Europe: TachoByte does not use the services of major foreign cloud providers, outside of the European Union. This means that your data cannot fall into the hands of third parties, but stays inside the EU and therefore controlled under the tight European privacy laws (GDPR).
- Store your company card safely: If you want to optimally secure the data and reduce manual work when downloading digital tachograph data remotely, you can optionally store your company card in our secure data centre. This way you exclude the chance of damage or loss.
New European privacy legislation
From 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply throughout the EU. From that date onwards, the same privacy legislation will apply to all Member States. Unlike the old regulations dating back to 1995, this new law has been completely optimised regarding the digital world we live in today. At present, Member States still have their own national laws based on the old directive, but Member States are now obliged to adapt their legislation based on the new regulation. It goes without saying that we are already complying with all the standards and obligations set out in the regulation.
At TachoByte, we believe if we want to offer our customers 100% security that we must plan for uncertainty. To prevent the loss of data at any price, TachoByte's data is protected and backed up not once, but twice. With the deployment of the best security techniques and procedures, as well as temperature control systems, we offer you one of the best possible data security environments.
