Digital Personal Data Protection (DPDP)

Meritto’s Commitment to India’s Digital
Personal Data Protection (DPDP) Act

In response to the comprehensive data protection legislation passed by the Indian Parliament, the Digital Personal Data Protection (DPDP) Act, Meritto has diligently aligned its practices to comply with this new regulatory framework. This Act marks a significant step in protecting personal data and balancing the rights of individuals with the necessity of lawful data processing in the digital age.

Understanding the DPDP Act

The DPDP Act is designed to protect the personal data of individuals within the territory of India, emphasizing consent, transparency, and accountability in data processing activities. It applies not only to digital data processed within India but also to any organization processing personal data of individuals within India, irrespective of where the organization is based.

  • Responsibilities and Obligations: We ensure consent is obtained before processing personal data and use the data solely for the purposes it was collected for, adhering strictly to the DPDP Act’s guidelines.
  • Data Protection Measures: Implementing robust technical and organizational measures to protect personal data from unauthorized access and breaches is at the forefront of our operations.
  • Responding to Requests and Breach Reporting: Meritto is committed to responding promptly to individual requests regarding personal data and reporting any data breaches to the Data Protection Board of India within the stipulated time frame.
