Your responsibilities as data controller
As data controllers, our users bear full responsibility for the data they collect and for the manner in which these data are protected. For instance, it is up to you to decide what information is uploaded to a Flexmail account, whether that processing is lawful and what email communications are sent to the contacts in question.
It goes without saying that the privacy provisions and principles contained in the GDPR go far beyond email communications. In that light it is essential that you, as data controller, engross yourself in the GDPR to ensure that you are fully au fait with all its aspects and with their relevance to your activities.
Flexmail’s responsibilities as processor
From its very inception, Flexmail has always put great store by people’s privacy. As we see ourselves as precursors of respectful email communication, we happen to be looking forward to the arrival of the GDPR with its stringent data privacy and security principles.
An important part of our preparations, which started well over a year ago, was to review the existing processes and systems, procedures and documentation.
Even though most of the preparatory work took place behind the scenes, we are still toiling away on initiatives that will be visible on the platform too.
