Carboledger is proud to announce its achievement of SOC 2 Type 2 compliance, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to data security and user privacy.

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a legislative framework focused on digital privacy, establishing guidelines for the collection, processing, and safeguarding of personal information belonging to European Union (EU) residents. GDPR compliance serves to fortify privacy rights by empowering users, referred to as data subjects, with control over the gathering, sharing, and utilization of their personal data. Data subjects have the right to the protection, utilization, correction, and accessibility of their personal data.

What is SOC 2?

The Service Organization Controls (SOC) 2 framework, developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), assesses a service organization’s internal controls relevant to security, availability, and data processing integrity. SOC 2 Type 2 focuses on the design and operating effectiveness of these controls, providing independent and rigorous validation of our commitment to data protection.
