Swivle and GDPR compliance

Swivle is a cloud-based Digital Asset Management solution by WoodWing Software BV. Swivle’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance is therefore part of the larger program for Data Protection within the WoodWing group of companies. This group includes WoodWing Software BV, WoodWing Europe, WoodWing USA, and WoodWing Asia Pacific / Digital Services.

What did we do to comply?

WoodWing engaged with a third-party company to review all internal documentation and took compliance steps within the group of companies to meet legal obligations under the GDPR.

Compliance with data protection legislation at the WoodWing group of companies is work in progress: documents, policies and internal processes are gradually updated. Swivle is part of these ongoing efforts.
