Data processing addendum (controller-processor)
This addendum may be used to supplement and amend an existing contract, with the aim of bringing the contract into line with the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (GDPR).
The GDPR requires that all contracts between those organisations that control personal data and those organisations that process personal data include certain clauses. This requirement is set out in Article 28 of the GDPR. The required clauses include: (i) a restriction upon the processor acting otherwise than in accordance with the documented instructions of the controller; (ii) restrictions on certain international transfers; (iii) confidentiality obligations for personnel having access to the data; and (iv) a requirement that appropriate security measures be used.
This addendum is designed specifically for the situation where one party is a controller and the other party is a processor with respect to personal data. It should not be used where transfers are controller-to-controller or processor-to-sub-processor.Ask about this document
