The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
We will notify you via email, within 7 business days.
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

As of May 25, 2018, the new EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will be in affect, mandatory for all companies that collect or process data for EU citizens.
To summarize the key changes for citizens sharing their data (the “data subject”), you have the right to:
Breach Notification: To be notified if there is a data breach which is likely to “result in a risk of rights and freedoms” to an individual.
Right to Access: To obtain from the data controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning them is being processed, where and for what purpose. Further, the controller shall provide a copy of the personal data, free of charge, in an electronic format.
Right to be Forgotten: Entitles the data subject to have the data controller erase his/her personal data, cease further dissemination of the data, and potentially have third parties halt processing of the data.
Data Portability: to receive the personal data concerning them, which they have previously provided in a 'commonly use and machine readable format' and have the right to transmit that data to another controller.
Privacy by Design: Requires controllers to hold and process only the data absolutely necessary for the completion of its duties (data minimisation), as well as limiting the access to personal data to those needing to act out the processing.

Wherever You Are is willing and able to comply to all regulations set out in the GDRP.
First, we will only require data from our users which is absolutely necessary to the function of our services. Providing additional data will be optional, and with the purpose and uses clearly explained.
Second, the data we do collect will not be sent to third-party processors. This is not part of our business model, and plays no role in the function of our services. We are proud to manage our website, our users, and their data, independently.
Last, instances where your data may be shared will be clearly explained, and easily be opted out. For example, companies seeking to hire a remote work may request a curated list of remote workers signed up with Wherever You Are, matching their specific requirements. Including your profile on this list will increase your chances of being considered by this company. You will have the choice to be included in such lists, or not. You will also have several options to manage who can see your profile.
As per your rights above, you may request information about how your data is being used at any time, in an electronic format.
