Veratad’s GDPR Role: Data Processor
Veratad does not believe ourselves to be the Data Controller for the products we offer because we do not determine the purposes for which, or the manner in which, personal data is processed. This is done by 2 parties: Veratad’s Data Partners and Veratad’s Customers.
Veratad does not have any overall control over the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ of a data processing activity. Veratad operates under the instructions of our Data Partner/Customer. Veratad’s Data Partners determine the purpose of processing in relation to the data they collect. The collection of the personal data at the point of capture and the legal basis for doing so is done by our Data Partner/Customer. Veratad’s Data Partner and Customer decide which items of personal data to collect, i.e. the content of the data. They both define the purpose or purposes for which the data will be used. Veratad has no power to influence the collection of personal data or the purpose of any immediate subsequent processing.
Veratad’s Data Partner/Customer decide which individuals to collect data about and whether to disclose the data, and if so, to whom. They decide on the information contained within the Fair Processing Notice that is provided to the individual.
If Veratad receives a subject access request (SAR) related to the services we provide, this is passed to the Data Controller (Data Partner or Customer) as we do not have full visibility at an individual level of the evidence in relation to data collection.
