You are the data controller of any personal data provided to us in relation to your use of our services. This means that you are responsible for determining the reason why data is being processed, how it is processed and when it is processed.

We are a data processor, which means we are processing personal data on your behalf when you are using our services. The GDPR prohibits us from conducting any processing activities that you have not authorised us to do. As a data processor we will not process any data you provide unless we have received an appropriate instruction from you.

As a data controller, the GDPR requires you to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure and demonstrate that any processing of personal data is performed in a compliant manner. The principles of the GDPR include topics such as lawfulness, fairness, transparency, purpose, data minimisation and accuracy. The GDPR also gives data subjects various rights with respect to their data, which you are required to fulfil.
