The privacy module is closely connected to the core in the system and is one of the modules that can be added to ensure compliance to privacy regulations such as the GDPR.

The privacy module opens up ‘Privacy’ tabs on processes, activities, and contracts. This means that for all process that have been added, the Privacy tab can be filled out. The tab presents a range of fields that differ depending on whether the user has opened the privacy tab in relation to a process, an activity or a contract.

Information in the fields is inserted either by text, checklists or drop-down menues. All information can be downloaded either in Excel sheets or in Word files by using the report generator that allows admin users to download the Article 30 (ROPA) report and the process risk report. For many of the fields the dropdown menus can be controlled by a system admin through settings.

In the list below you can see which fields are available on each level. To learn more about each field, click on the links on the given field.
