General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Team Brilliant has always had a strong focus on protecting any data we collect and process. We appreciate the solidification of this through the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) laws that enter into effect on May 25, 2018.

Below you'll read how GDPR applies to Team Brilliant and our customers.

Compliance in relation to our employees and vendors

Team Brilliant is the entity that owns and operates the Brilliant Book House online store, a business located in the Vancouver, WA, United States of America. This entity is fully GDPR compliant, which means we only request and process data based on legal bases as defined in the GDPR. In cooperation with our counsel, we have made a thorough assessment of all of our processes and data stores.

Where needed, we changed our internal policies and procedures to be in compliance with GDPR and deleted data that we didn't need or want. We also defined a new Privacy Policy.

Finally, we reached out to our vendors to request agreements to ensure that we remain compliant when using their services.

Compliance in relation to our customers

In relation to our customers, Team Brilliant is both a Data Controller and a Data Processor depending on the type of data collected.

Data Controller

Team Brilliant is the Data Controller for the information we collect about our customers and visitors, which means that we determine the "purposes and means" of the data we collect as the Controller. Some examples: their name, their email address, their credit card number, and any other data that we collect based on the GDPR legal bases. This data is safeguarded by various policies and procedures.

When sharing data with vendors, we have made sure there are contracts in place that ensure they also receive and process this data in a lawful way.

You can read more about the data we collect for which purpose in our new Privacy Policy.

Data Processor

Our customers are the Data Controllers for the data that their applications gather and send to Team Brilliant.

Team Brilliant processes that data on behalf of them, which makes us the Data Processor. To enable our customers to be fully GDPR compliant while using Team Brilliant, we have taken various measures.

In short: Team Brilliant doesn't wish to receive any personal data about your visitors, and will provide the tools that enable you to strip this information before sending it to Team Brilliant for processing.
