Paxton product compliance
Paxton has worked to ensure its compliance with legislation covering data protection including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by 25th May 2018.
Our access control products also include the features necessary for our customers to achieve compliance.
- Our systems are protected with password protection and operator rights, limiting the access to the data within the system. For the benefit of increased security, the systems can be set to automatically log out an operator if the system is inactive for an extended period.
- You can set the system to report on information held for an individual, as well as permanently delete a user and all associated information if requested.
- User activity in the system, in the form of events, can be deleted manually at any given point or a set timescale (i.e. 30 days) automatically. In the case of Paxton10, video records can also be deleted in the same way. Event information can be retained in the case of Net2, but can be anonymised. Net2 does not hold video data but any links to associated video can also be removed as part of the deletion of user information and events.
- Data security is achieved within the systems by the use of best practice methods and database structure
There are two new application notes relating to the security update within Net2 v5.04:
We have made sure that our products will provide the tools required to allow compliance if used correctly, however, Paxton is not responsible for a user’s compliance with GDPR and do not offer advice on how to be compliant.
Paxton10 End User License Agreement
The Paxton10 EULA is a legal agreement between the end-user and Paxton Access Limited for the Paxton10 software product, which includes computer software and any data supplied with it, printed materials and online or electronic documentation.

National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) compliance
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2019 prohibits federal agencies from procuring non-NDAA-compliant equipment or entering into contracts with entities that use non-NDAA-compliant equipment. Paxton10 utilizes non-NDAA-compliant Hikvision camera hardware. Paxton’s own video management software is embedded on each of the available Paxton10 cameras. Therefore, Paxton10 cameras are not recommended for use by federal agencies and contractors that offer services or equipment to federal agencies. You are required to disclose whether any equipment banned under the NDAA is being offered to the government.
Meeting NDAA compliance
Paxton10 can easily meet NDAA compliance via the use of fully compatible 3rd party cameras without sacrificing functionality. A list of fully compatible 3rd party camera options can be found by visiting www.paxton.info/5128. Our experienced customer support team are always happy to help answer any questions you may have. Please refer to the product instructions for contact information. All other Paxton products are NDAA compliant.
