European Clients

Data Protection

In this Section and in the Appendix (Data Processing Agreement):

“Data Protection Laws means the EU Data Protection Laws and the laws of other states and territories that create and regulate substantially similar concepts and legal principles as are contained in the EU Data Protection Laws in relation to the processing of personal data and sensitive personal data.

EU Data Protection Laws means, up to and including 24 May 2018, any legislation in force from time-to-time which implements the EU Directive 95/46/EC and relevant national implementations of the same and, with effect on and from 25 May 2018, means the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”) and any relevant national implementations of the same;

personal data, sensitive personal data, consent, controller, processor, data subject and processing mean those concepts, roles and activities as defined in the applicable EU Data Protection Laws and on and from 25 May 2018 sensitive personal data means those classes of personal data that are described in Article 9 of the European General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679) or, where relevant, equivalent concepts, roles and activities as described in other Data Protection Laws.

We are the controller in respect of personal data and sensitive personal data, such as account registration details, that we collect directly from users of the Services (End Users) and users of No-Charge Services, and which we use for the purposes of our business.

You are the controller and we are the processor in respect of any other personal data and sensitive personal data (including within Your Modifications) that is uploaded by End Users and/or users of No-Charge Services including data, templates, information, content, code, video, images or other material of any type (Materials), or which is provided by your administrators (see Section 10 below).

On and from 25 May 2018, to the extent that the Services and/or Non-Charge Services comprise the processing of personal data or sensitive personal data where we are the processor and you are the controller and the processing of personal data or sensitive personal data is subject to the GDPR:

you will comply with the requirements of the GDPR as the same apply to you as controller of the personal data or sensitive personal data, including the obligations set out in Section below; and

the provisions of the Appendix (Data Processing Agreement) to these Terms shall apply.”

In clause the following shall be inserted at the start of the third bullet point:

“subject to Section above and the Appendix to this Agreement,”

The following shall be inserted at the end of clause

“We will present our Privacy Policy to you and to others who may download Materials and where we are a controller. To the extent that we do not have direct contact with End Users or the relevant data subjects, for example, where personal data or sensitive personal data is uploaded relating to your employees or customers, and where we are a processor and not a controller, it is your responsibility to ensure that it is in accordance with Article 13 of the GDPR:

There is a lawful basis for the collection and processing of personal data and/or sensitive personal data; and

You present our Privacy Policy to those End Users and other data subjects, as required.”

The following shall be inserted as a new Appendix to the terms and conditions:

“Appendix (Data Processing Agreement)

The provisions of this Appendix (Data Processing Agreement) form part of the Agreement to the extent that Section 6 of the Agreement applies.

Intrinsically Safe Store shall:

process personal data only on documented instructions from the controller, including with regard to transfers of personal data to a third country or an international organization, unless required to do so by European Union or the national law of an EU member state to which the processor is subject; in such a case, the processor shall inform the controller of that legal requirement before processing, unless that law prohibits such information on important grounds of public interest;

ensure that persons authorized to process the personal data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality;

implement appropriate organizational and technical measures as required pursuant to Article 32 (security of processing) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679. The measures that we consider appropriate are more fully described in Intrinsically Safe Store’s Architecture and Security document (a copy of which is available on request). This document outlines:

Our architecture and infrastructure through which Services and No-Charge Services are provided;

security controls employed by us and our service providers in protecting personal and/or sensitive personal data; and

security controls employed by our support channels which handle personal data or sensitive personal data.

respect the conditions for engaging another processor referred to in paragraphs 2 and 4 of Article 28 (processor) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679;

taking into account the nature of the processing, assist the controller by appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is possible, for the fulfillment of the controller’s obligation to respond to requests for exercising the data subject’s rights laid down in Chapter III of the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679;

assist the controller in ensuring compliance with the obligations pursuant to Articles 32 to 36 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to the processor;

at the choice of the controller, delete or return all the personal data to the controller after the end of the provision of services relating to processing, and delete existing copies unless EU law or the national law of an EU member state to which the processor is subject requires storage of the personal data;

make available to the controller all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with the obligations laid down in Article 28 (processor) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 and allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections, conducted by the controller or another auditor mandated by the controller (in each case at the controller’s cost).”

Controllers of data must provide fair processing notices to data subjects, which set out minimum information about how their data is processed. With regards to Intrinsically Safe Store processing the details of your end users, Intrinsically Safe Store has updated it’s Privacy Policy to provide such a fair processing notice – see here. However, in relation to providing fair processing notices to data subjects that you may collect data on when conducting inspections, Intrinsically Safe Store cannot feasibly provide fair processing notices on your behalf, as we cannot distinguish personal data from any other inspection data. The obligation in this circumstance remain with you as data Controller.

We host our customer and audit data with Go-Daddy, who are a top-tier, third-party data hosting provider. By default, every customer will have their data stored on the Go-Daddy’s servers located in the U.S. For more information about Go-Daddy’s approach to compliance with the GDPR, see
