Telania, LLC. has taken steps to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As a software-as-a-service provider, our platforms and applications are used globally, which include countries located in the European Union (EU). We voluntarily participate in the Privacy Shield program to further demonstrate our commitment to privacy and data protection. You can see our Privacy Shield registration here.
This page is designed to try to explain what the GDPR is and how Telania, LLC. strives to adhere to it’s tenets and principles.
What is the GDPR?
The GDPR is a new comprehensive data protection law in the EU that aims to update existing laws to strengthen the protection of personal data. The GDPR replaces the patchwork of national data protection laws currently in place with a single set of rules, directly enforceable in each EU member state. The GDPR is effective from May 25, 2018. The GDPR grants EU residents greater say over what, how, why, where, and when their personal data is used, processed, or disposed. This rule clarifies how the EU personal data laws apply even beyond the borders of the EU. This means that any organization that works with or stores EU residents’ personal data in any manner, regardless of location, has obligations to protect the data. Our policy is simple; it collects as little personal data as possible and safeguards it as well as possible.
So who does the GDPR apply to?
As of writing, the GDPR applies to any and all organizations operating in the EU or processing “personal data” of EU and Switzerland residents. Though there may be some nuances in the definition, this is our current understanding of the coverage of the GDPR.
What data does the GDPR apply to?
Our current understanding of the GDPR is that their concept of “personal data” is very broad and covers any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual (also called a “data subject”). Personal data is basically anything that you could conceivably use to identify a person within a larger group. Personal data will include name, address, email, ip address, cookies, location and other data points.
So what personal data do you (Telania) collect and why?
We’re glad you asked. There are three main scenarios where Telania might collect your personal data.
When you register
- We typically require and collect email addresses for the access to the system during registration. We require email to register, as these are unique and allows us to identify you as a user, log you into your account (except in cases of Single Sign-On), and send system notifications and messages to facilitate a successful experience on our platforms.
- We collect names in order to ensure the integrity of access and records and also to be able to facilitate a successful interaction between our client companies and their users.
- We collect IP addresses in order to detect the misuse of the system, combat abuse, and for logging purposes.
When you make a purchase (subscription, content, events):
- We collect first names, last names, addresses, cities, and countries only from paying customers, for billing purposes.
When you integrate our services like eLeaP API, or Single Sign-on with another service:
- When you connect to eLeaP API or utilize Single Sign-On, we might collect and store certain personal data for those services in order to provide a successful link to those services.

The majority of our users are from the United States of America (USA); all our data is stored in data centers in the USA for optimal performance.
