Privacy and data protection are always on the priority list at SafetyMails.

This approach makes SafetyMails, besides being one of the most accurate email verification tools on the market, one of the most reliable in terms of correctness and compliance with key privacy and data protection guidelines and regulations.
Data Protection and Privacy
The movement for privacy and data protection is advancing every day on a global scale. Several countries and organizations have engaged in the development of regulations, legislation, and best practices in data protection.
For example, the European Union has the most mature regulation, the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). Following its example, Brazil launched its LGPD (Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados – General Law of Data Protection).
Countries such as Uruguay, Mexico, Argentina, also have personal data protection laws. The European Commission has already recognized, among others, South Korea, Canada, Israel, and Japan as countries that offer adequate protection for personal data. Brazil is seeking its place in this prestigious list.
Benefits for all
The various laws, regulations, and best practices being adopted around the world aim to protect people from abuses of their personal data.
For example, companies can no longer request data that is not actually necessary for the service to be performed properly. Only the minimum necessary data.
They also need to make it absolutely clear to people what uses will be made of that data, giving them the option of accepting it or not.
In addition, people can also ask for information about what is being done with their data, request changes and so on.
The requirement to handle personal data seriously makes the personal data environment much safer for everyone.
For companies, this process is also excellent, because it demonstrates commitment, transparency in the relationship with customers and prospects, increases the level of credibility of the company, among others.
Since its founding, inspired by GDPR, SafetyMails has been adopting best practices in terms of privacy and data protection.
In addition to its training programs and internal policies, where SafetyMails raises awareness about information security and about the care in various daily tasks, various security measures are implemented frequently.
SafetyMails also monitors its business partners to ensure that everyone maintains up-to-date commitment to privacy and data protection.
In order to maintain the highest levels of quality and compliance in privacy and data protection, SafetyMails has been seeking to update its policies, security measures, etc.
Among the latest updates, in addition to major improvements in access policies, we are seeking more knowledge and international certifications in data protection.
