Who is a DPO?
GDPR as well as other local data-protection laws outline that companies that deal with personal data need to have a Data Protection Officer (“DPO”). A DPO is a person responsible for ensuring privacy compliance in a company.
The vital responsibility of our DPO is to validate that Closely processes the personal data entrusted to us in a lawful, fair, and transparent way, according to applicable data-privacy regulations, both European and local. This professional is in charge of many duties like: (1) monitoring actual data-privacy regulations and best practices in a market to implementing fair data-protection initiatives; (2) assessing, reviewing, and improving internal policies and processes; (3) conducting data protection impact assessments and other examinations required by the regulation and our partners; (4) monitoring our products and services for data-protection compliance; (5) providing all the necessary support to our customers and other data subjects, etc.

, including raise a concern or complain about the handling of your personal information, bring into play any of your rights, or receive any of your data-related information. It can also help you with navigation in our policies and processes linked to your data processing.
