Combyne, the mobile app, solves the age-old dilemma of picking the perfect outfit for different outings and events. Now you can simply create outfits using different clothing items from your favorite brands. You can also take a photo of any of your own clothing items and add them to your outfit.

So basically, you can dress on your phone saving you the hassle of actually trying on each outfit before you decide on the perfect one.

We caught up with Christian Dienst, the Chief Operating Officer at combyne to find out why they chose to trust ECOMPLY.io to manage their GDPR compliance.

What is GDPR according to you?

Christian: I believe it gives businesses and organizations the chance to outline their internal data structures and improve their systems accordingly. In the end, it is an international standard that companies need to adhere to in order to protect their customers and employees’ data and privacy.    

Why did you need to be GDPR compliant?

Christian: From day one of our GDPR journey to compliance, the most important factor for us has been to provide data protection to our users and employees. Even if we are not at all involved in large-scale processing, GDPR has given us the opportunity to organize ourselves and our internal system and also to improve our data management approach. We felt that by establishing a data-conscious environment, our user community and partners can only benefit more from our products.

Why did you choose ECOMPLY.io?

Christian: After we came up with a strategy on how to tackle our data processes, we thought that ECOMPLY’s integrated format could benefit us greatly. Given that we are still a small company (according to the GDPR guidelines), we were really happy to have found a simple, accessible platform that would allow every member of our team to understand and add information.

Who works with ECOMPLY.io? How does it fit into your own processes?

Christian: During the “mapping” stages, just a small part of the team was involved. We needed to figure out how to approach this and to select the processes that we knew for certain involved collection and use of personal information. Afterwards, we managed to bring in the whole team, and everyone’s input proved to be extremely helpful.

How did ECOMPLY.io add value to your GDPR journey?

Christian: For us, ECOMPLY has been an effective facilitator. By having access to a comprehensive list of processes, requirements, and explanations, we managed to save a lot of time and effort. After selecting the appropriate processes, we were able to add our own, internal activities. This helped us build a comprehensive database of processes, in a single format. Also, the ECOMPLY’s team has always been open to answering questions when we couldn’t figure something out.  

What were the alternatives?

Christian: Obviously, the alternatives would have been organizing the departmental information, creating templates and using all sorts of documents. We would have been required to spend a lot of extra time on creating an accessible format and then to add our input. That would have significantly delayed our GDPR compliance journey!

Any final thoughts?

Christian: Ecomply offers a simple, step-by-step approach to comply with the GDPR at an attractive price and with great customer service.
