The “GDPR in Your Pocket” mobile app created under the SMEDATA project was honored in the “Public Administration” category at the annual awards of the Bulgarian Association of Information Technologies (BAIT). The event was held on 25 February 2020 in Sofia under the patronage of the President of the Republic of Bulgaria Rumen Radev. The idea of the awards is to pay tribute to all the individuals, institutions and organizations that have been contributing to the information and communication technologies development over the past year.

The mobile application award was received from the chairman of the Commission for Personal Data Protection (CPDP). CPDP was a key contributor to the creation of the tool’s content.

A month ago, APIS Europe JSC, responsible for the software development of the app, released its final version. It can be freely downloaded from  Google Play and App Store.

“GDPR in your pocket” is an innovative application, one of the first in the field, providing citizens and small businesses practical knowledge and advice on their personal data protection rights and obligations.

The SMEDATA project is coordinated by CPDP and involves the Italian Data Protection Authority, APIS Europe, The Union of Bulgarian Jurists, Ernst & Young Bulgaria, European Women Lawyers Association – Bulgaria, and Roma Tre University.
