GDPR Compliance Statement

Last Updated: 2023.09.15

We have made every effort to provide a detailed overview of the GDPR compliance and how does Docspe support your business to operate within the confines of this regulation especially when it comes to customer data and its verification through Docspe. But it is still advised to engage services of a legal counsel in order to have a better understanding of GDPR compliance and the liabilities that come along with it. The following compliance guide is actually the practices, procedures and upgrades introduced in the internal working of Docspe to make its services GDPR complaint.

The deadline for GDPR compliance is here and Docspe has wasted no time to make its services fully compliant with EU’s User Data and Protection guidelines. We have adopted an industry prevalent approach known as Data Process Control to better protect the interests of not only our clients but their customers as well.

Summary of GDPR Sections Applicable to Docspe CMS Services


GDPR needs the websites and online businesses to intimate users that they are using cookies. The language of this intimation is also desired by GDPR to be easily understandable for an average user. Consent is required from the user before they are tracked because of these cookies. We have updated our cookies policy in this regard as well.

Lawful Basis

GDPR only allows the collection of user data for a legal reason. Docspe only collects data for verification purposes as per the legal agreement signed by Docspe and its customers. This data will be limited to verification of the credentials, identity or any other related verification that was required by our customers to be provided as per the legal agreement.

We have even added a consent process at the form where a customer is supposed to fill its identification details. We also provide the option for customers to go through our data protection, privacy policy and Terms & Conditions, to ensure full transparency.


GDPR requires businesses and websites to forget and delete the user data when requested by the user. Docspe has taken steps to provide full control to the end-users about the data that they have submitted for identity verification.

Docspe's Game Plan for GDPR Compliance

Either you are a B2B or B2C, eCommerce company, Educational Entity or Crypto based organization, you probably by this point have known about General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It is a new directive set by the European Union, legislation that set forths guidelines regarding how information is collected and how it is processed and used.

The GDPR legislation was formed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe. Empowering all EU citizen’s data privacy in the process, and to reshape how organizations approach data privacy in a secure and transparent manner.

At Docspe, tireless efforts have been underway over the last few months to assist our users, businesses and our clients. To help them understand, what the GDPR means for their businesses and to assist them in establishing a compliant process of their own. Considering that aspect, we have made great improvements to our Docspe platform to ensure that we stand at par with the GDPR measures.

Docspe has prepared a Game Plan for you to understand, how GDPR operates behind the scenes when a customer interacts using our service.

The Process:

Let’s say that John is a potential customer and lives in France. He is called the Data Subject, and your company the health service provider, is called the Controller of his data. Since Docspe is verifying the credentials of John on behalf of your company, then that makes Docspe, the Processor.

Here is how John might interact with Docspe:

  • John’s controller uses Docspe with web browser
  • John approaches the Controller and the controller intends to use Docspe to provide treatment to John and operate its business.
  • Verification is carried out.
  • John provide relevant credentials (Government-issued ID number)
  • The controller displays his verification document up to the web camera. Or John will receive an SMS notification of 6-digit random one-time password to be shared only with the Controller
  • The Processor will verify the registration
  • Based on the results of verification of Verified or Not-Verified the Data Subject can proceed to the next course.

All the above-stated steps gather user data from the Data Subject on behalf of Controller that is passed on to Processor. Following are various aspects of our data protection policy, privacy policy and Terms & Conditions that control the entire process, under the guidelines of GDPR

User Data

User Data means any data, content, code, video, images or other materials of any type that User uploads, submits or otherwise transmits to or through Services. User will retain all right, title and interest in and to User Data in the form provided to Docspe. Docspe stores data on industry secured servers located in the EEA zone, and are monitored. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, you hereby grant to Docspe a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free right to;

  • (a) collect, use, copy, store, and transmit User Data, in each case solely to the extent necessary to provide the applicable Services to Client
  • (b) Client hereby grants to Docspe all necessary rights to use, reproduce, modify, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, transmit and display the User Information (including any rights specifically pertaining to biometric information) solely to the extent necessary to provide the Services which will include the right for Docspe to grant equivalent rights to its service providers that perform services that form part of or are otherwise used to perform the Services.

Access to Data

The Services include access to the Back-office, Client may access and download (either manually or via API) the data from each of its Verifications, including extracted data and images for each individual Transaction, via the Back-office for the Term. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, access to the Back-office, and therefore access to data storage will be revoked. Docspe may delete any stored items in storage upon expiration or termination of this Agreement. Docspe will have no responsibility or liability for storing and deleting items in accordance with this Section 9.

Docspe’s primary physical safeguard is to not retain sensitive data in any public or private Docspe location other than those assigned for database management and quality assurance activities. Specific workstation usage, disposal, reuse and security measures are in place. Access to Docspe facilities is all independently controlled via card access preventing walk-up intrusion. Docspe’s data centre uses a cloud-based architecture with inherent security measures including 24 hours monitoring, advanced fire protection systems, uninterruptible power and database redundancy. Annual audit of the facility security plan, disaster recovery plan, and contingency plans are in place.

Technical Safeguards (HIPAA 164.312)

To further protect sensitive data, Docspe enforces unique software architecture that includes user identifications, various database audit logging, data integrity systems and verified backups, entity authentication programs, digital certificates, various levels of encryption and other custom architecture to further obscure sensitive data from threats.

We process personal data on your behalf, and we endeavour to process the personal data in a safe and secure manner, together with any third party service providers we may engage. We are responsible only for our compliance with the applicable regulations insofar as these apply to us. Docspe uses best practice security measures to safeguard your data from any breach.

You own your own data. Data is stored on Docspe cloud, and maintained by us. Our obligation is to safeguard the platform and cloud from any potential security breach, making sure best practices are in place. We provide you the platform to host your data, and use it for other purposes to manage your business. However, we do not have any power or right on the choices you make for your data. But we do provide you options and ways to make sure this is the best practice and risk mitigation measures.

No, Docspe is not liable for retaining your data for 7 years if the customer decides to destroy/delete/corrupt/remove/terminate this data by their own choice. We do use best practices to help you manage your data, like setting user permissions, having confirmation step with a warning prior to any data deletion, and even with a deletion, we still allow you to restore some data within a period of 30 days in case you decided to restore it for any reason. After 30 days, it is permanently deleted from the cloud storage. We process the data on your behalf, but we do not own your data or have any power to perform any action on it nor able to access your data without your permission.
