As the world becomes increasingly digital, trust in handling personal data becomes paramount. That’s why we’re proud to announce that the Disprz enterprise learning platform has achieved compliance with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

This reinforces that we’ve taken the necessary steps to protect the personal data of our existing and prospect clients, and set the standard for data protection in our industry.

In this blog post, we’ll explain how Disprz’s skilling suite ensures compliance, and the benefits of using a GDPR-compliant platform for our clients, prospects, and colleagues.

What is GDPR? Why is it important?

GDPR is a regulation implemented by the European Union (EU) to protect the personal data of individuals within the EU. It came into effect on May 25th, 2018, replacing the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive.

GDPR sets out stringent regulations for organizations on collecting, using, and storing personal data. It explicitly allows the user to opt out of having their information gathered, sets up specifications for timely data breach notification, guarantees access and erasure rights, data portability, and a few other items.It applies to any organization that processes the personal data of individuals, regardless of where the organization is located.

It significantly impacts Learning and Development (L&D) platforms as they must comply with GDPR to protect the users’ data. The L&D platforms are responsible for individuals’ personal information, such as names, contact details and growth records, which needs to be shielded with utmost vigilance.

A failure to adhere to the stringent requirements of the GDPR could result in dire consequences, including substantial financial penalties and an irreparable loss of trust from users. The regulation aims to harmonize data protection laws across the EU, making it easier for organizations to comply with rules and for individuals to understand and exercise their rights.

It’s imperative for L&D platforms to wholeheartedly embrace the GDPR and deploy robust measures to ensure the secure preservation of their users’ data.

How Disprz Ensures GDPR Compliance?

Disprz ensures compliance with the GDPR by implementing measures to protect the personal data of its users. Some of these measures include:

  • New User Onboarding: This includes age, location, identifying minors, updating privacy policies, and tracking user consent.
  • Terms & Conditions: This enables us to set up a list of legal requirements that users need to accept to use the Disprz enterprise learning platform.
  • Acquiring Consent: Ensures that users are completely aware of how the user’s personal data is used and that consent is received before any data is collected or processed.
  • User Information Download: The Disprz platform allows users to extract their profile, courses, and log data in CSV format to be GDPR compliant.
  • Policies report: It enables administrators to see who has consented to the terms and conditions and who has turned off the “Data Use Authorization”.
  • Permanent Data Deletion: The user of Disprz has the option to request the permanent deletion of all of their personal data.
  • Security Measures: We have robust security measures to protect personal data and incident management procedures from responding to breaches.
  • Regular Review & Update Policies: We periodically review its policies and procedures to ensure they are up-to-date and aligned with the latest GDPR requirements.

How Is GDPR Important For Our Clients & Prospects?

Disprz is dedicated to helping businesses comply with GDPR requirements, which include:

  • guaranteeing the safe transfer of data

  • assisting enterprises with user requests to remove data

  • supporting enterprises with user requests for portability or export of data

  • notifying them of any security incident or data breach affecting their users’ data

It is Disprz’s obligation to assist the enterprise in fulfilling user requests. It’s vital to remember that Disprz has less direct responsibility as the data processor than client companies in terms of adhering to GDPR regulations.


At Disprz, we understand that trust is earned, not given. By achieving GDPR compliance, we’re showing our clients, prospects, and colleagues that we take data privacy and security seriously.

Our commitment to protecting personal data sets us apart in the industry. It allows our clients, prospects and colleagues to focus on what matters most – improving their skills and achieving their goals.

We’re proud to offer an enterprise learning platform that meets the highest standards for data protection and look forward to building trust with our clients, prospects and colleagues through our commitment to data privacy and security.
