Qardio updates privacy policy for GDPR compliance

Privacy is at the core of our business

At Qardio, our mission is to make heart health easier, smarter and better for everyone.
In this mission, trust is the most important value. You trust us with your most precious and personal data, and nothing is more important to us than continually earning that trust through our quality, accuracy, reliability, customer support, security, and the way we protect your data.

Our privacy model is simple: your data belongs to you

We take the privacy of our users very seriously, and we consider privacy to be at the core to our business. Our privacy model is simple: your data belongs to you. As a Qardio user, you can rest assured that your data has always been, and will always be, handled with the utmost care by us, with advanced systems and technologies, and rigorous processes and quality assurance practices.

Introducing an updated privacy policy and terms & conditions in compliance with EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Today, we’re announcing our updated privacy policy and terms & conditions to support upcoming changes resulting from the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). For our European business customers, our new business terms & conditions incorporate a new GDPR-ready Data Processing Addendum. We see the GDPR as an important step for our industry and the protection of data and individuals. The GDPR provides a blueprint for companies to put the user at the center of their privacy and security programs — empowering individuals to control how their data is used.

A higher standard than can ever be imposed on us by any law

Our ethos is to practice for our private users the same honest, respectful and considerate regard that we would like for ourselves and our own families. This applies to everything we do – including protecting the privacy of our users – and frankly that’s a higher standard than can ever be imposed on us by any law. For this reason, we only had to make minimal changes across the company to be fully compliant with GDPR.

What’s next?

These updates will take effect for existing users of our products on 25th May 2018. We encourage you to review the updated Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions. By continuing to use our products on or after 25th May 2018, you acknowledge our updated Privacy Policy and agree to it. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
