Cataneo and GDPR – Our Commitment to Data Privacy

Cataneo is committed to compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which went into effect May 25, 2018. The regulation contains the most significant changes to European data privacy legislation in the last 20 years. It is designed to give EU citizens more control over their data and seeks to unify a number of existing privacy and security laws under one comprehensive law.

The regulation focuses on EU citizen data and is not limited by the location of the company that is processing or controlling this data. This means that a company can be located anywhere – within the EU or not – and still be impacted by the regulation if they are processing the data of an EU citizen.

The GDPR gives EU citizens the right:

  • to know when their data is collected
  • to know how their data is used
  • to request data deletion
  • to access their information or to copy it

Our customers can trust that Cataneo has made GDPR a priority and has devoted significant and strategic resources toward our efforts to comply with GDPR. Our approach and progress to date is outlined below.

What Cataneo is doing

Like many other global software companies, Cataneo began the process of rolling out its company-wide GDPR compliance strategy in the lead up to May 2018 and we continue to do so. Cataneo appreciates that our customers have requirements under GDPR that could be directly impacted by their use of Cataneo products and services, and Cataneo is committed to helping our customers fulfill their requirements under GDPR and local law.

Below are some of the initiatives Cataneo has committed to in order to satisfy GDPR requirements that apply to both Cataneo and our customers:

  • While not required to under Article 37 of GDPR, Cataneo has made the decision to proactively appoint a Data Protection Officer
  • Committing to follow any additional security and privacy measures required under GDPR.
  • Where we are transferring data outside of the EU, committing to appropriate data transfer mechanisms as required by GDPR.
  • Assisting with respect to security and privacy of processing, notifying regulators of breaches, and promptly communicating any breaches to customers and user.
  • Assisting with data processing security and privacy requirements, notifying regulators in the unlikely event that we have a personal data breach and promptly communicating any such breaches to our customers and end-users.
  • Ensuring Cataneo staff that access and process Cataneo customer personal data have been trained in handling that data and are bound to maintain the confidentiality and security of that data.
  • Holding any vendors that handle personal data to the same data management, security, and privacy practices and standards to which we hold ourselves.
  • Committing to carrying out data impact assessments and consulting with EU regulators where appropriate.

Thank you for visiting us at IBC2017

Cataneo was once again exhibiting at IBC (International Broadcasting Convention), one of the biggest media and technology conventions in the world, located in Amsterdam, and we would like to share our experience! The International Broadcast Convention is an important event for us, in order to expand our footprint in the industry and spread the word about our products and solutions!

The show was very busy for us and also very prolific. We are happy to see that our brand and products are well known in the market and that more and more people are familiar with us. We had the chance to meet lots of new prospects, as well as catch up with some of our existing clients. Cataneo also took the chance to get some insights of what is trending in the industry and pinpoint opportunities for our product development.

Cataneo gets personal – meeting the athlete Markus Hörmann

Cataneo gets personal – meeting the athlete Markus Hörmann

Cataneo is a company that supports and values a healthy work life balance. We  are, besides the daily business of an IT company, also interested in society in general. We are keen on helping our employees, as well as people we collaborate with, achieve their goals in life by improving their skills, health and happiness.

Meeting Markus Hörmann

One of the people we collaborate with is Markus Hörmann, a German triathlon athlete and excellent example of a healthy and happy person. Markus is part of the Cataneo family since 2012 as a sponsored athlete and identifies himself with our company’s values.

Markus visited Cataneo’s office in Munich and we would like to take the opportunity to share some information about him and his journey as an athlete.

Markus Hörmann & Catalina Calapod Cataneo

Markus Hörmann & Catalina Calapod (Cataneo)

Markus  just had his first few races after a career break. We are really impressed with how he dealt with needing to go under hip surgery and how the recovery time changed his way of thinking about life. His motto is “pure motivation” – he used it to get better and as the main source of strength. According to Markus, the reason why he not only reached his old form again and got even better than ever before, was his positivity.

Markus said: “When you want to build a career and perform extraordinary, the most important thing, besides your mindset, are the people you are working with and having a supportive team around you. Cataneo is part of this team.” It makes us proud to hear that Markus is happy with us on his side. His views on life match with what we from Cataneo believe in, which is why we are encouraging our employees to take Markus “pure motivation” as an inspiration for themselves.

He told us that the recovering period was one of his biggest challenges which made him more mature, wiser, thankful, a better person and athlete. We at Cataneo think that Markus is a very good example for us. It shows that tough times teach us lessons, make us stronger, and most importantly, give us a better sense of our self.

As Cataneo was the first sponsor for Markus, he is very grateful to have this long term, personal relationship with us. Cataneo are also very happy to have Markus in our team in his best health and athletic shape. We are proud to sponsor him as part of the Cataneo family and an ambassador of our brand!

Cataneo would like to thank Markus for his time and for sharing this personal story with us. We are looking forward to the future that lies ahead of us as a team!

IBC2017: TV broadcasting from the cloud Cataneo and SWISS TXT

Cataneo and SWISS TXT are showing how TV broadcasting from the cloud works at this year’s IBC in Amsterdam, the trade fair for the European television industry.

The two companies complement each other. While Cataneo’s content scheduling & ad sales platform ensure seamless broadcasting, SWISS TXT’s media management system, mediahub, runs in the background to ensure that the programme elements are delivered on time. Complex production processes can be automated and content for other vectors, such as social media and OTT services, can be prepared efficiently using the workflow and transcoding engine. There is also the option to connect other services, such as editing systems. Mediahub will operate as a SaaS solution from the SWISS TXT broadcast cloud and can be seamlessly and gradually configured into existing environments.

About SWISS TXT

As a subsidiary of SRG SSR and its centre of multimedia excellence, SWISS TXT has accompanied Switzerland on its way to an increasingly complex digital future since 1983, with services from consulting through to implementation. It is an established service provider for digital media, video streaming and access services.

SWISS TXT will be at the IBC in Hall 3 at Stand B15.

They can book and control campaigns from the buying systems – and on the road map, programmatic buying for linear TV!

In addition to MYDAS, Cataneo also offers MYTOS, an integrated program and scheduling system that provides an easy, comprehensive and efficient tool to plan and schedule multi-channel and platform content, including FreeTV, Pay TV and VoD.
