Linkfire is committed to protecting customer data and privacy. We take our obligations regarding data compliance seriously and transparently. Like many cloud service providers, we are reviewing our data protection program and making adjustments to ensure compliance with the GDPR by its effective date.
Linkfire’s ongoing commitment to data protection is evidenced in a variety of ways:
Linkfire only uses trusted and certified compliant data-centers. Both AWS and Azure carry with them certifications, including ISO 27001 and SOC.
Linkfire is continually investing in our own and our partners security infrastructure.
Linkfire is currently in the process of obtaining a SOC-2, Type II report, anticipated to be completed within 2018.
Linkfire is and has been certified with the EU-US Privacy Shield since 2017.
All data is encrypted in transit using TLS 1.2, and at rest using industry-standard AES-256.

4. How will Linkfire account for consent?
Linkfire is redesigning the consent method to collect and treat personal data to comply with newer regulations.
The new consent flow will empower users with:
Giving or withdrawing consent to tracking.
Granular control over which tracking entities are accepted.
Additional disclosures over what the cookies used for and by whom.
The new consent flow will feature:
A dynamic display of different disclosures and user flows according to the country the user is navigating from.
Advanced logging for consent given and withdrawn in compliance with GDPR’s data subject rights.
5. What is considered “Personally Identifiable Information” (PII)?
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context.
Customer data is stored in ISO 27001 / SOC2 certified data centres. Linkfire also ensures that data collected from the EU stays within the EU, by directing data to data centres within the region. This complies with GDPR as the regulation governs the protection of customer data.
