Vancouver, British Columbia–(April 26, 2021) – Oculus VisionTech Inc. (TSXV: OVT; OTCQB: OVTZ; FSE: USF1), an emerging data compliance innovator, through its brand, ComplyTrustTM, today announced general availability of “Forget-Me-Yes™” (FMY) a data privacy solution. General Availability status allows Oculus through its brand ComplyTrust™ to emerge from a pre-revenue company to a company actively marketing and selling its services.
“Forget-Me-Yes™” (FMY) is ComplyTrust’s Software-as-a-Service application for organizational and individual Right-to-be-Forgotten (RtbF) and Right-of-Erase (RoE) data privacy compliance. The Forget-Me-Yes™” Zero-Knowledge platform provides single-source capability of continuous compliance by incorporating automated policy-driven re-query services that guarantees a Data Subject’s requested RtbF/RoE data remains ‘forgotten’ over the life of their FMY subscription.
Forget-Me-Yes™’s B2B cloud-native microservice and infrastructure-agnostic architecture, is now available on a monthly subscription-basis for Salesforce organizations, supporting both structured and unstructured data queries. According to Gartner’s 2020 Hype Cycle for Legal and Compliance Technologies, the average cost to manually process a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) is $1,406.00. Forget-Me-Yes™ is cost-effective insurance to ensure DSAR deletion-request compliance for Brazil’s LGPD, California’s CCPA/CPRA, Europe’s GDPR, Nevada’s SB220 and Virginia’s CDPA data privacy legislation.
Matt Leib of International Data Corporation (IDC) says “Today’s world and changing laws along the lines of the European GDPR mean that we have control over whether our information is even held within an organization’s environment. Our right to remove this data is ensured by GDPR, as well as newer iterations of this regulation across the world. Placing that request obligates the organization to remove it. However, there are methods by which that data can creep back in. Oculus VisionTech’s Forget-Me-YesTM platform ensures the organization not only removes all traces, but consistently monitors the dataset such that should this data creep back in, it will once again be removed. In this way an organization can not only comply with the regulation, but remain in compliance.”
“We are pleased to announce the Forget-Me-Yes™ product launch initially under the global AWS cloud infrastructure, providing our B2B customers with an elastic, resilient, scalable and secure platform for CCPA, CDPA, GDPR, LGPD and SB220 data subject privacy compliance management”, said Michael Johnson, President and co-founder at ComplyTrust.
“The Forget-Me-Yes™ data privacy platform is both a cost-effective and innovative solution that equally protects data subjects, data collectors and data stewards alike in the worldwide data privacy compliance landscape”, added Rowland Perkins, CEO and President at Oculus VisionTech.
