Saas Agreements And Gdpr

12. April 2021

With licensed software, a system integrator or implementation partner often obtains a copy of the software and then installs it on hardware controlled by its client. In most cases, the data is entirely under the control of the customer, so the data processing agreements have not been concluded. Since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25 May 2018, SaaS suppliers and customers have been legally required to include a written data processing agreement (DPA) in their SaaS agreements. The data protection authority is generally a timetable for the SaaS agreement and must include the specific and detailed mandatory obligations set out in the RGPD. SaaS providers should use their own data protection authority and object to any attempt by a SaaS customer to have them registered on the SaaS customer`s privacy statement for the following reasons. Cloud service providers („CSPs“) now have a key responsibility as data processors and must act exclusively on the instruction of the data processor when processing personal data. Currently, most PSCs offer, in addition to the SaaS (SaaS) agreement, their own standard data processing agreements that cannot be negotiated by a processing manager who wishes to subscribe or access it (for example. B a data manager who wants to use customer relationship management to effectively receive and track customer requests or complaints). Under the RGPD, SaaS suppliers face direct data processing obligations. They must ensure that their product agreements with customers comply with data requirements.

Otherwise, customers, customers and local data protection authorities could impose infringements on them. SaaS suppliers and SaaS customers must ensure that all contractual documents containing data processing, such as SaaS agreements, privacy policies and hosting and support agreements, comply with the new RGPD and Dpa rules. Keep in mind that oral or written confirmation of RGPD compliance from your third-party suppliers is not enough. You must also have data processing agreements with each of your suppliers and subcontractors to get full compliance. Therefore, if you are responsible for the data, update your product agreements to comply with the new rules. And for the processors out there, check with your SaaS suppliers to see if they`ve started taking the appropriate steps for compliance, and make sure your own team is fully prepared – if you want to share some of your preparation tips, shoot in the comments area below! Whatever conditions are put on the table, they must be in line with the RGPD, i.e.:
