Cloud robotics firm, C2RO, which is based in Montreal, Québec, has appointed a new Data Protection Officer (DPO) to help guide the company as it develops its presence in European markets.
Dr. Gérard Haas DPO will drive C2RO’s compliance with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as set forth by the European Parliament and Council of the European Union. Dr Haas will be integral to a process of alignment, helping C2RO to integrate stronger data privacy standards and best practice into the all technology and operational decisions.
Riccardo Badalone, CEO at C2RO, said:
“Protecting the data privacy of customers is of utmost importance to us and remains the guiding principle in everything we do and create at C2RO.
“The EU is an extremely important segment of the market, and having a recognised GDPR expert like Dr. Haas joining our cause sends a very strong message to our EU Customers that our AI services can offer transformative and unique business insights while still being in full compliance with existing and future data privacy regulations.”
Dr. Haas has been working closely with the C2RO executive team to ensure the GDPR compliance of C2RO Perceive, which is a state-of-the-art machine vision platform that delivers powerful business insights about demographically classified preferences and behaviours of in-store visitors.
These insights are a key ingredient in enabling the transformation cycle that is driving the retail and commercial real estate industries towards highly personalised and data-driven interactive smart environments.
Dr. Gérard Haas, founder of HAAS Avocats, said:
“We are delighted to have been appointed as Data Protection Officer by C2RO. This relationship underscores C2RO’s commitment to developing technology that respects the privacy of the individual and is a new opportunity for us to apply our expertise in technology services at the heart of innovation.
“We’re proud to have shaped the evolution of their data processing technology, and we will continue supporting C2RO within the framework of a global policy aiming at ensuring the transparency and confidence of the users of its services.”
The European Union has been at the forefront of a global movement to protect the data privacy rights of consumers. GDPR and associated guidelines have severely restricted the use of generally available machine vision AI technologies with the purpose of obtaining marketing data through traditional surveillance systems.
C2RO is an industry leader in pioneering new methods and technologies for simultaneously achieving new levels of business insights while ensuring that consumers are not at risk of having their personal data used without their consent.
