Databunker is a Personally Identifiable Information (PII) Data Storage Service built to Comply with GDPR and CCPA Privacy Requirements.
Project demo is available at: https://demo.databunker.org/. Please add a star if you like our project.
We live in a world where the privacy of our information is nonexistent. The EU has been working to remediate this fallacy with GDPR, and the US (California) follows with a first sparrow called CCPA.
Data Bunker Project is intended to ease the acceptance of GDPR and CCPA regulations while giving organizations an easy to implement API's, secure Database to store PII, and privacy portal. This will give all of us, the real data owners, control of our data, and allow us to know who is using our data, what is he doing with it, and have the freedom to decide if we agree to that or not.
This project, when deployed correctly, replaces all the customer's personal records (PII) scattered in the organization's different internal databases and log files with a single, randomly generated token managed by the Data Bunker service.
By deploying this project and moving all personal information to one place, you will comply with the following GDPR statement: Personal data should be processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security and confidentiality of the personal data, including for preventing unauthorized access to or use of personal data and the equipment used for the processing.

Send us a note if you are running Databunker.
This project resolves most** of the GDPR requirements for you including:
NOTE: Implementing this project does not make you fully compliant with GDPR requirements and you still need to consult with an attorney specializing in privacy.
NOTE: When we use the term "Customer" we mean the data of the end-user that his information is being stored, shared, and deleted.
Right of access
Databunker extracts customer email, customer phone values out of the customers' personal records granting passwordless access for the customer into their Databunker personal account. This is done by generating a random access key that Databunker sends to your customer by email or by SMS. Your customer can login and view all the information collected and saved by Databunker in connection to his profile.
Right to restrict processing / Consent withdrawal
Databunker can manage all of the customer's consents. A customer can Withdraw consent/restrict processing in his personal account at Databunker. For example, to block newsletter service. Your backend site can work with Databunker using our API to add, or cancel consents and a callback operation will be fired when a customer's action takes place.
NOTE: Data bunker can call your backend script on a consent withdrawal (callback). You will have to handle these requests and remove the customer records from other 3rd party processing companies. For example: web recording services, email gateways, etc...
Privacy by design
This product, from the architecture level and down to code was built to comply with strict privacy laws such as GDPR and CCPA. Deploying this project can make your architecture privacy by design compliant.
Transparency and Accountability principle
Any system or customer connecting to Databunker must provide an access token to authorize any operation, otherwise, the operation will be aborted. An end customer can login to his profile with a random authorization code sent by email or SMS.
All operations with personal records are saved in the audit log.
Any customer can log in to his account at Data Bunker and view the full audit of activities performed on his profile.
Right to be forgotten / Right to erasure
When your customer requests to exercise his right to be forgotten, his private records will be wiped out of the Data Bunker database, giving you the possibility to leave all internal databases intact while not impacting any of your other systems.
Upon customer removal request, Data bunker can call your backend script (callback) with the customer details. You will have to handle these requests and remove other customer records from 3rd party processing companies. For example from web recording services, email gateways, etc...
NOTE: You will need to make sure that you do not have any customer identifiable information (PII) in your other databases, logs, files, etc...
Right to rectification/ Data Accuracy
Your customer can log in to his personal account at Data Bunker and change his records, for example, change his Name. Databunker can fire a callback operation with customer's details when a customer action takes place.
Right to data portability
Your customer can log in to his personal account at Data Bunker and view and extract all his records stored at Data Bunker.
NOTE: You will need to provide your customers with a way to extract data from other internal databases.
Integrity and confidentiality
All personal data is encrypted. An audit log is written for all operations with personal records. All-access to Data Bunker API is done using an HTTPS SSL certificate. Enterprise version supports Shamir's Secret Sharing algorithm to split the master key into a number of keys. A number of keys (that can be saved in different hands in the organization) are required to bring up the system.
Implementing this project does not make you fully compliant with GDPR requirements and you still need to consult with an attorney specializing in privacy.
