This article contains a high-level description of the Data Processing Agreement and why it is needed. At the bottom of the article is a copy of the current version of the Data Processing Agreement per product in the Kiona portfolio.
Data protection in the EU
The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights stipulates that EU citizens have the right to protection of their personal data.
Regulation (EU) 2016/679 - General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data. The regulation is an essential step to strengthen individuals' fundamental rights in the digital age and facilitate business by clarifying rules for companies and public bodies in the digital single market.
The Data Processing Agreement (DPA)
In order to meet the requirements of the GDPR and to ensure the rights of the data subject, Kiona enters a DPA with our customers. The DPA set out the rights and obligations of the buyer of the system (the data controller) and the supplier of the system (the data processor). The contract is a copy of the standard contractual clauses as defined by the European Commission, intended for controllers and processors within the European Economic Area (EEA).
