Europechain GDPR Compliance positioning white paper

GDPR COMPLIANCE POSITIONING WHITE PAPER

This positioning paper describes the way Europechain public blockchain aims to support its projects in being compliant with GDPR and EU data regulations.

While blockchain technology is still in its early stages, and this paper must remain a living document to adapt to new regulations, we base our principles on the long-standing European data protection tradition and GDPR basics. By making fundamental design choices that align with these principles, we can remain compliant and withstand policy changes that may impact other areas.

HOW IT WORKS

COMPLIANCE CHECKS

Before deploying on Europechain we require dApps to conduct a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA), amend their dApp in accordance with the findings, and to sign the required processing agreements to maintain compliance with EU data regulations. Each package includes a 1-day PIA by the Zaisan team.

ACCOUNT CREATION

After signing the required documents, you will receive sufficient account creation codes which allow you to create Europechain accounts

PERMISSION SETTING

After the account creation, you can request the required permissions through the Europechain permissions portal

DAPP DEPLOYMENT

Once all agreements, accounts, and permissions are set you can start deploying your dApp

GRANT PROGRAM FOR STARTUPS

Providing web3 startups in need of GDPR compliance with a significant number of free API calls and onboarding services enabling projects to leverage cutting-edge blockchain technology in a cost-effective way.

WHAT IS XEC?

Europechain XEC Token

XEC is the native token of Europechain. XEC tokens can be used to stake in order to be able to perform transactions, but they can also be used to purchase other resources on Europechain which can be necessary to deploy your project.

Unlike many other blockchains, transactions on Europechain are essentially free. By staking XEC you gain access to a certain amount of resources available on the blockchain, which replenish over time.

Furthermore, XEC is not meant as an investment vehicle. The XEC price will remain constant, ensuring costs are predictable.

IDENTITY & KYC

Zaisan offers a BETA identity wallet with a KYC process. This self-sovereign identity tool will allow individuals to create, manage, and share their digital identity in a secure and convenient manner.

It helps businesses by reducing the amount of personal information that they have to both store and handle. It also aids them in remaining compliant with evergrowing data regulations.

Furthermore, it helps individuals by giving them more control over their personal data, allowing them to share their data securely in a way that allows data to be verified by others.

ANY QUESTIONS?

Where can I find more technical information on Europechain?

Europechain is kept up-to-date with the latest (stable) release of the Antelope software. The GitHub page of Antelope can be found here. Furthermore, a developer portal of EOS Network Foundation, the developer of Antelope, is available here. More advanced Antelope documentation can be found here. Lastly, a smart contract developer’s handbook can be found here.

What is the transaction cost on Europechain?

Transactions on Europechain are costless. This is possible due to the resource model that is used by Europechain.

Each Europechain account has 3 resources: CPU, network and RAM, which all allow users to do different things. We will explain each resource individually below using a metaphor:

“If Europechain was a train, CPU, RAM, and network could be explained in the following way:

Network would be the available seats in each train leaving and entering the blockchain. Your chair will always be reserved, and if u need it, it will be yours. BUT, if no one is on the train, you could lay across a bunch of chairs because they are free! So network is a way to make sure you have somewhere to sit when the train leaves.

CPU is how often you can ride the train, and works much like network as far as allocation goes. You may have a train ticket, but of course the ticket is only usable on certain days and times.

Now the Europechain train train is pretty laid back, so any unused space is free to use re: CPU and network, until the people that paid for the space need to use the space.

CPU and network are joint resources that together are called BANDWIDTH.

RAM is your storage space on the train. If you need to bring a ton of luggage, you need to pay per bag to check your bags onto the train. If you do not need to bring a lot of luggage, you can sell your storage space to others that are riding on the train.”

CPU and network can be obtained by staking XEC, which is essentially locking your tokens for a certain time. When the user wants to move their XEC they can unstake their tokens, essentially making transactions free. RAM can not be obtained through staking but can instead be bought and sold and is used to perform other kinds of actions on Europechain.

What is a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) and why is it necessary?

A Privacy Impact Assessment, commonly referred to as a PIA, represents an integral component in the realm of privacy and data protection. This systematic evaluation process serves as a mechanism to assess and mitigate any potential privacy hazards arising from data processing activities. By performing a PIA, organisations can effectively guarantee their adherence to data protection regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), thereby ensuring their compliance with the law.

DPIAs are not just mere formalities, but rather play a vital role in safeguarding the privacy rights of individuals. By conducting a PIA, organisations can proactively identify and mitigate privacy risks before they materialize, thus minimizing the likelihood of a data breach or any other privacy violations that could have a detrimental impact on individuals and the organization itself, in terms of legal repercussions or reputational damage.

With compliance being a key part of Europechain we require all applications on Europechain to conduct a PIA. Therefore both Europechain packages include support with your PIA as well as a full PIA review.

What if I need more resources than included in the package?

If you require more resources or consultancy than is included in the package, you will be able to buy more through Zaisan. Please get in contact with us.

How does Europechain support web3 projects in being GDPR compliant?
Europechain supports web3 projects in being compliant with GDPR by providing a blockchain infrastructure that incorporates various GDPR compliant measures such as contractual architecture, data protection impact assessments, informing data subjects, privacy enhancing technologies, and consulting and assistance with compliance.
Europechain requires all contracts that include data processing to fully comply with GDPR and establishes controller-to-processor and processor-to-subprocessor data processing agreements. Europechain also requires dApps to provide information on their data processing and requires them to conduct a PIA. Standard privacy texts are provided for dApps to include in their privacy statements to inform data subjects.
In addition, Europechain deploys privacy-enhancing technologies, registered Data Protection Officers, and dApp development tools that ease the use of deletable data. Consulting on standards and products, as well as assistance with PIAs, is also available. Europechain also addresses regional deviations in GDPR implementation laws.
Overall, Europechain provides a comprehensive framework for web3 projects to ensure GDPR compliance in their data processing activities.
Is Europechain environmentally sustainable?

Europechain is an energy-efficient and carbon-neutral blockchain. This is possible due to the efficient consensus mechanism used by Europechain (Delegated Proof of Stake) and the use of green data centers by all Europechain validators.

Are the costs of the package recurring or a one-time fee?

The packages are just a one-time fee. If you need more of any of the components these can be obtained by getting in contact with us.
