GDPR, the biggest data privacy requirement change brought in by the EU has effect on most of the companies having their customers in Europe. That has an equal impact on HMD Global, which is registered in Finland, and has customers spread all over the globe.
Following the guidelines of the GDPR and the customer’s right to be forgotten, HMD Global now has a dedicated web form. The web form provides a Nokia user with access to all the details that HMD has stored about him. The user can download it and can also request for the deletion of the collected data.
There’s not much private data that HMD collects from the user. So, for most users, the results will bring the details from the Nokia phones account, community, developer preview, beta program, newsletters and some other services wherein the email is provided.
This is a definite welcome step and I am glad that HMD is following the requirements of GDPR. I do, however, feel that they could have better presented the collected data. The current display seems to show it how it appears in the various database tables, which might not be the best way to present it.
You can view your collected data by filling this web-form and clicking on the link in your email.
