What should be included in a data protection authority? The RGPD is very prescriptive when it comes to dpa requirements. Article 28, paragraph 3, stipulates that the data protection authority must contain specific information on the processing of personal data, including: Many PSCs reserve the right to use personal data for different purposes that have not been agreed with their processing manager (client), which is particularly common when cloud services are provided free of charge by the PSC. Processors are required to hire data processors who provide sufficient assurance that this personal data will be processed in accordance with the RGPD. Organizations must therefore check whether the use of the PSC will result in additional complications and risks and possibly a violation of the RGPD. (B) The company wishes to provide the data processor with certain services that involve the processing of personal data. 12.1 Confidentiality. Each party must keep confidential this agreement and the information it receives about the other party and its activities related to this agreement (“confidential information”) and may not use or disclose this confidential information without the prior written consent of the other party, unless:a) disclosure is required by law;b) the relevant information is already available to the public. 6.1 Processing sites. DigitalOcean can transmit and process customer data in the U.S. and around the world, where DigitalOcean, its related companies and/or subprocessings maintain data processing operations. DigitalOcean uses appropriate safeguards to protect personal data wherever it is processed, in accordance with the requirements of data protection legislation. However, depending on the severity and nature of the injury, there are two levels of fines. Fines imposed on the RGPD for breaches of data processors are generally covered by the first stage, whose guidelines can be as serious as 10 million euros or 2% of global turnover.
In any case, it is much less painful to sign a data processing agreement and to comply with the terms than to pay a penalty from the RGPD. We hope this guide will help.
