Privacy & GDPR Compliance
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It's the core of Europe's digital privacy legislation, and we use it as a benchmark as it is the strictest law on this topic. GDPR is a set of rules giving citizens more control over their personal data. In addition, it aims to simplify the regulatory environment for business, so both citizens and businesses fully benefit from their private life in the modern world.
Strictly speaking, every employment contract contains a clause that allows organizations to monitor work computers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Hence, legally, we are allowed to act. However, GDPR provides a benchmark for what is accepted and the correct level of intrusion for both employee and employer.
ELEFense does not divulge any private data of any employee. We only show Metadata collected at a very high level, sufficient for managers to gain insight rather than knowing everything specific. Furthermore, we can block all non-work-related data collection, for example, holidays, weekends, home usage, and more. ELEFense can completely mask the identity of every user.
That means that the system allows managers to perform all the relevant analysis work that needs to be done completely subjectively.
ELEFense tools have been designed to supply managers with the bigger picture; what it is employees have worked on without focusing on the nitty-gritty that managers simply don't have time to deal with.
This was the first thing we agreed on when we set out to create a system that would Prevent and Protect against toxicity in the workplace.
