XcooBee, the Privacy Network, announced today the launch of its world-first Universal Authority Complaint (UAC) tool. The innovative UAC tool brings easy complaint filing with most EU GDPR supervisory authorities to the masses.
XcooBee was formed with the mission to protect the digital rights and privacy of consumers and businesses alike. After reviewing the current state of filing complaints with authorities the team found that there were large differences between them. Filing instructions differed and some authorities would not offer any type of direct email contact whatsoever.
“Should a user complete the filing task, he or she would then need to figure out how to track progress,” explains XcooBee founder and Chief Worker Bee, Bilal Soylu. “Though the GDPR was supposed to lift individual privacy out of the cellar into the sunlight, there are large gaps that need to be overcome; these gaps are mostly in privacy tooling for every-day people.”
As a result, the XcooBee team created a comprehensive tool for individual privacy complaints. This innovative world=first tool can be used in all languages the XcooBee platform supports. The XcooBee team also made a 3 minute video walk-through available to show users the filing process. The complaint tool is also connected to XcooBee consents, so that users can directly point at any consent issues within the platform.
“It is simple to use, and complaints can be completed with a few clicks. We simplified the process massively and created a management tool that can raise and track complaints with most EU GDPR supervisory agencies,” added Soylu. He continued, “our objective was to improve the tooling that people can use and remove the confusion.”
XcooBee is making the Universal GDPR Authority Complaint tool free to use to any XcooBee platform user. “We did not want to restrict access to essential privacy tooling,” underscores Soylu. He adds, “This is core to XcooBee’s mission, and we are glad to offer it to our users.”
