It is, however, a great opportunity for businesses all over the world that deal with EU states to critically assess their approach to securing personal data. Over the last few years, as online marketing has become more aggressive and ubiquitous, ways of identifying and reaching individuals have become services, whose currency is personal data.
With this is mind, perhaps it is time we saw personal data as a currency, and took the same steps to ensure ours doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.
At Cryoserver, we believe GDPR is the start of doing just that. To ensure transparency, we have listed below the answers to some of the more frequently asked questions about our role and commitments to our customers and data controllers after May 25.
In what capacity do you process personal data under GDPR?
We store, secure and provide various levels of access to your company email data. What is stored, how it is stored and how long it is stored are decisions that you make as a Data Controller, and actions we take as a Data Processor.
We cannot read your emails. There is no action we could take without your consent that would involve any member of our team seeing personal data in your emails.
Do you sub-contract any processing activity?
Do you have a Data Protection Officer?
We are not a public authority, and don’t process personal or sensitive data on a large enough scale to warrant the appointment of an independent DPO.
Our point of contact for all GDPR-related matters is:

This gives us lawful basis under article 6 of the GDPR to process personal data in order to fulfil the contract
Do you transfer personal data outside the EEA, or is any data accessed from outside the EEA?
How do you ensure the security of the personal data you process?
What happens in the event of a breach at Cryoserver?
