Rocket Apps and your privacy
As of today (25th May 2018), new data protection requirements enforced by the European Union General Data Protection Regulation – or the GDPR for short – come into effect.
For Rocket Apps customers this means you will have more control over your personal data. Although this technically only applies to Rocket Apps customers in the European Union, the same courtesies have been applied to all customers.
Your right to be forgotten by Rocket Apps
As mentioned above, you may now completely remove yourself from the Rocket Apps ecosystem. You may wish to do this, for example, if you no longer wish to use any Rocket Apps products or receive any further electronic communications. You can do this by logging in, going to the Downloads page and hitting the Privacy tab. You’ll be given a couple of chances to confirm before your personal information is removed.
What happens when you remove yourself?
Your account will be immediately deleted, any existing licenses removed, and a request is sent to the website administrator to remove your email address from the newsletter database within 24hrs (if you were even in it).
Your right to access your personal information
The personal information stored is limited to your name, email address, encrypted password and your original order details. If you would like a copy of this information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Consent to electronic communications
Although you may have already opted in at some time in the past to receive the occasional newsletter, your consent must be voluntarily granted again in order for Rocket Apps to be compliant with GDPR regulations. To ask for consent, Rocket Apps will be sending you an email politely asking for your continued permission to be sent newsletters. This is totally optional of course.
If you have any comments about these new privacy arrangements, please email email@example.com or leave a comment below.
