Data Processing Agreement (Short)

The Problem

Your supplier does not process significant amounts of personal data, but given the severity of DP sanctions, you wish to put an arrangement in place for good order.

Related Challenges include:

  • you only have a basic understanding of DP obligations
  • assessing privacy related risk levels is not an exact science
  • you are not sure what a data processing agreement looks like, but know it is important
  • you cannot afford to get external counsel support
  • you do not know what obligations are required in this scenario to ensure that you are protected
  • you only have a short amount of time to put in place data processing arrangements
  • some of your suppliers have committed data privacy breaches and you need to protect yourself
  • your business is becoming increasingly digitised
  • your supplier may be required to process more personal data in the future, although they are not processing significant amounts of personal data now

Cancel those plans as another unnecessary night of cobbling something together lies ahead. Hopefully it will do.
