Right now, many of the big websites, services, and apps you use are rushing to get their new privacy policies and terms of service in order. You’ve probably noticed all the notifications about it popping up on your phone and in your email. Just this week, we’ve seen messages from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkdn, SoundCloud, and just about any other app that requires you to sign up for an account. The driving force behind this change is Europe’s new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), which has been approved since 2016, but goes into effect on May 25, 2018.
When you register for an account on TecHKnow we ask you to provide certain information about yourself. The purpose of this information is two-fold;
- To permit admin staff to manage the TecHKnow website (e.g., username, password, school address, occupation).
- To encourage all of our members to both individually and collectively build a community environment and to allow all members to participate within that environment (Your social media feed, Interests.)
By registering you are actively consenting to allowing any registered member to view the information which you provide to us.
