Legal Basis of Processing
Under the GDPR, all companies must have a legal basis for processing personal information. We rely on the following legal bases for collecting and processing personal data:
- For data we collect, processing is made based on your consent to the collection or processing of your personal data. For our customer’s data, processing is made based on our customer’s agreements with their clients.
- Processing is necessary to perform a contract with you.
- Processing is required to comply with a legal obligation that applies to us.
- Processing is needed to protect the vital interests of you or another person.
- Processing is based on the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or based on the public authority.
- Processing is based on our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, provided that your interests or fundamental rights do not outweigh them.
Our lawful basis for processing is based on our customer’s consent from their clients and prospects either via their terms and conditions or other contractual agreement. Our default assumption is that any customer we work with has received the required consent to capture their client data and process it via first or third party resources. In our contractual agreements with our customers, this will be explicitly agreed upon.
International Data Transfer Mechanisms
Many US companies have commercial interests and businesses inside the EU and therefore handle the personal data of EU citizens directly protected by the GDPR. As a result, EU authorities, through the EU Commission, have determined the need for valid mechanisms for companies to make such data transfers without putting any personal data protected under the GDPR at risk of infringement. These are the most important of such mechanisms.
- Standard Contractual Clauses. Also known as SCCs, these clauses are part of a contract between data controllers and processors for safe and responsible data transfers between EU and non-EU countries.
- Adequacy Decision. The European Commission has made a finding that the country to which the data is being transferred provides a level of data protection that is equivalent to that provided by members of the European Union. When the international data transfer is based on an adequacy decision, it means that, although data is sent cross-border outside of the EU, the receiving country or territory can legally handle such information as it were within the EU.
- Privacy Shield. EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield frameworks were designed by the US Department of Commerce, the European Commission, and the Swiss Administration and aimed to create an alternative mechanism for international personal data transmission. Privacy Shield has been judged invalid as an adequate mechanism for international data transfer by the EU Commission and the Swiss administration. However, the US participants of Privacy Shields are still under the framework and must remain compliant with its directives.
- Binding Corporate Rules. These are data protection policies made by companies with strict observation of GDPR and other privacy directives. Companies create BCR as a valid and legitimate mechanism for transferring personal data outside the EU within a group of companies or undertakings and enterprises. For the BCR to be compliant, it must be approved by a local Data protection authority.
