What does GDPR mean for OMAWAKE and for you?
It means we all need to take extra care when collecting and processing the personal data of our customers (emails, phone numbers etc) so that we can provide customers with the assurances they may want about how their data is being protected and used.
Where is OMAWAKE’s consumer data stored?
OMAWAKE stores all data in servers and backup servers located in the United Kingdom. The software is a cloud-based, which means that all data is safely stored on servers with the highest levels of reliability and security.
Can customers request to be removed from the OMAWAKE database?
All customers can submit their requests to remove their information from OMAWAKE databases by contacting Customer Support Department firstname.lastname@example.org.

OMAWAKE ensures that data is retained no longer than is required.
