Our Commitment to
Protect Your Data

Data Privacy Is in Our DNA

We believe every person has a fundamental right to fully own and control their own data.

In today’s internet age, behemoths like Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn (to name only a few) profitize people’s personal data and are heavily incentivized to prevent individuals from controlling, transferring or removing any of the data they freely provide on these websites. Although recent events have raised significant awareness about these issues, there is still a long way to go to put the power back into the hands of individuals.

We don’t need a government regulation to tell us what we already know about the need to protect your data

This fundamental human right is the driving vision behind Dock and something we take very seriously. The GDPR aligns with our mission to protect these rights and creates more awareness for individuals and companies all over the world to come to this same conclusion.

From the start, we have taken significant measures to protect your personal data on our platform and within our company processes. Below illustrates how Dock is fulfilling the GDPR requirements and embracing the individual rights as described under the GDPR.

What is the GDPR
