Introduction to the GDPR manager

Papirfly takes GDPR seriously. It is important to us that individuals keep their ‘right to erasure’. Because of this, we have our own GDPR function within Place that allows individuals to control if they want images of themselves uploaded or not.

The GDPR Manager ensures that images with identifiable people are only available if the image has been granted consent by the person in the image. If the image is not consented to, the image will not be available in Place.

The tool can be found in the cog-wheel area in Place as long as it has been enabled:

  1. Click the cogwheel to expand this menu
  2. Click on the option GDPR manager in the drop-down menu. This opens the GDPR Manager administration tool
