GDPR for training organizations using econume


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European regulation entering into force on May 25, 2018. Its implementation concerns all small or large companies operating in Europe, European or not. The objective is to make companies responsible for the management of personal data. These are common sense practices that are fairly easy to implement for a training organization.


Yes! The implementation of the GDPR is an internal process in your organization. It is not enough "to use GDPR compliant software". You must set up a policy for the collection and responsible management of the personal data of your clients and trainees that you store on various media, and on which you carry out processing.

Econume is one of the media on which you store this data and is therefore responsible for implementing the GDPR as a processor. We offer various functions described below to make your life easier in this context. In practice, centralizing data in a minimum of tools will make your life easier.

Most of the routine tasks performed by a training organization for the operational execution of training do not pose concerns for GDPR compliance. It will be necessary to pay attention to security, limit collection to the minimum data that is necessary and for a limited time and allow clients and interns to request the recovery and destruction of this data.

However, you should pay attention to your use of data for commercial purposes. It is the very spirit of the GDPR to fight against abuse on this point. You are using data that has been entrusted to you for training for other purposes, it is imperative that you communicate clearly about these treatments and obtain the informed consent of individuals.


Here is a brief list of the different points to address to implement the GDPR on your side in your organization. For more comprehensive information, we recommend that you explore the excellent CNIL guides on the subject.



Econume has appointed a Data Protection Officer who you can contact in case of questions regarding the GDPR, reachable at


Designate an internal person who will be responsible for setting up the personal data protection policy in your organization. This person must have the right status and skills.

CNIL advice


User data is visible and editable in their Econume account. The data required in a user account are those legitimately necessary for the operation of the service. A user can export their data from their account, and request to have their account permanently destroyed by contacting us at


Collect only the minimum data strictly necessary for your service, and plan to destroy or anonymize it after a certain time.

Customers and trainees should be able to ask you for an export of the data you have stored, as well as a destruction of personal data. Centralize data storage, or carefully map the different storage locations to easily perform export and destruction or anonymization. Clearly highlight a way for customers to ask you about these steps. CNIL guide on data export.


Econume provides you with various means to store data on your trainees (editable fields, loading files, notes). The only data required by the software is the last name. Other data should only be collected and stored when necessary for your business.

If one of your trainees asks you to export or destroy his personal data, you have several functions that can be used in your Econume account.

You can export a trainee's personal data in Excel format from his file in the software.

You can anonymize the personal data of interns from their file in your Econume account. Anonymization helps preserve the educational and financial results and your history. The intern's name will be replaced by a code, and all personal information (name, address, etc.) will be permanently deleted.

The stored data has a lifespan of 2 years. After 2 years, an email will be automatically sent to you offering to anonymize or keep a list of old data that will be presented to you.


List precisely the data collected, their real need and use for your activity. Document this mapping in a register (model proposed by the CNIL).

Check that each third-party service used (online software, file storage, etc.) has implemented the GDPR on its side. Collect an authorization from your customers for any treatment carried out (a checkbox for each treatment, unchecked by default). Think of the treatments concerning commercial communication.


The data must be stored securely (password to access it). Encrypt data on database disks. If you have data on desktop computer disks, enable hard disk encryption (Windows, and Mac guide).


To provide you with the best possible customer support, we use the Intercom system of chat or email communication between you and us. This system complies with the GDPR and only collects the minimum data necessary for this service (no data related to your customers or training sessions).

Your data concerning your clients and trainees are not subject to any data processing other than their use as part of the use of the Econume software by you. They are not transferred to any other service.


All data exchanges between your web browser and the Econume server are encrypted by SSL protocol. Your account data can only be accessed with your username and password. Econume servers are in Europe (Ireland) in the AWS data center via the web application host Heroku. This datacenter is ISO 27001, SOC 1 and SOC 2 / SSAE 16 / ISAE 3402 certified. The databases are continuously protected by physical backup, and the data is encrypted on disk in AES-256.


Our commitment to user privacy

Keeping users’ information safe, secure, and private is among our highest priorities at Econume. Over the years, we have worked closely with data protection authorities around the world and have implemented strong privacy protections that reflect their guidance.

We are committed to complying with applicable data protection laws

We are always working to stay compliant, which helps make compliance easier for your business. We are audited regularly by third parties, maintain certifications, provide industry-standard contractual protections, and share tools and information you can use to strengthen your business’ compliance.

We maintain and continue to invest in advanced threat detection and avoidance technologies, as well as a rigorous 24/7 incident management program to help you identify and respond to security or privacy events without delay and with available information.


User Transparency

We provide transparency about how data is used in our eLearning products. We ask users for permission to use data to personalize eLearning and provides transparency into how the data is used in real time via “Why This Ad?” We provide detailed explanations on how we use data on Privacy Policy.

Users can go to their ad settings to control the use of data for eLearning personalization and for all eLearning shown by Econume, including on our Econume Marketing Platform products. As part of our continued commitment to giving users controls to manage their privacy, we have updated our account creation experience to give users more options on what data they choose to save in their account

Privacy regulation is changing. We know you need to select products that are both compliant with all applicable data protection laws and use personal data in ways that are compliant. Below is information on how Econume is complying with specific privacy laws.
