Privacy Policy

[Revised May 25, 2018]
  

Overview

In order to address the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we've updated our privacy policy to reinforce our commitment to the privacy and security of user data.

At GMR Transcription, we believe in putting customer experience and satisfaction above everything else. Keeping these things in mind, we’ve made a few updates to our Privacy Policy to make it easier for you to understand what information we collect, why we collect it, and how we use it. We’ve also taken necessary steps to improve our Privacy Checkup and other controls we provide to safeguard your data and protect your privacy.

While your current settings, interface or how your information is processed will remain unchanged, we have gone a step further by improving the way we describe our practices and more clarity in explaining the options you have for updating, managing, exporting, and deleting your data.

The main purpose for these updates include:

  • Better transparency on how data is collected and processed.
  • Increased clarity on the type of information collected.
  • Increased rights, controls and choices for EU citizens over how personal data is used – and guidelines on accessing these controls.

We encourage you to take a look, so you're fully aware of the changes. These updates give you more control over your personal information, support new data protection laws in the European Union, i.e., the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and allow you to make more informed privacy choices when you interact with us.

Here’s a detailed summary of these important updates:
