General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to empower EU citizens with respect to their personal data, and to reshape the way organizations approach data privacy. It comes into effect on May 25, 2018. Simply put, EU residents will now have greater say over what, how, why, where, and when their personal data is used, processed, or disposed. The reach of the GDPR extends even beyond the borders of the EU. Any organization that markets products and services to individuals in the EU is obligated to comply with the GDPR, regardless of where in the world that company is located.
iDevAffiliate is committed to meeting our GDPR obligations and helping our customers meet theirs. Below are some of the steps we have taken to reach this goal.
The GDPR divides responsibility for data protection between data controllers and data processors. Data controllers determine what data they collect, the purpose of that data collection, and the means, while data processors assist them to complete these tasks efficiently. In the affiliate marketing ecosystem, the marketers and publishers decide when to run or participate in affiliate marketing campaigns and the basic operational framework, meaning that they act as data controllers. iDevAffiliate creates tools to help companies manage their affiliate marketing campaigns. Practically, this means that we act as a data processor when we store and process data relating to individual affiliate marketers and end users on behalf of our customers.
As a data processor, it is our obligation to:
- Only process or transfer personal data on instructions from our customers, the data controllers
- Assist our customers with requests from end users, affiliates, and authorities on privacy-related matters
- Take reasonable and appropriate measures to secure personal data, and submit to regular auditing and testing
- Formally document our privacy and security practices and procedures
- Enter into contracts which reflect these obligations with our customers and sub-processors
The Obligations for Data Controllers
The GDPR significantly expands the responsibilities of data controllers. Among other obligations, data controllers must:
- Understand what personal data they collect, where it is stored, and with whom it is shared
- Identify a legal basis for processing personal data, such as end user consent or a legitimate interest
- Provide end users with relevant information regarding the use of their personal data and give them meaningful options over how it is used
- Respect the rights of data subjects to access their personal data, correct it, request that it be deleted, or receive it in a machine-readable format
- Adopt reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure the security of personal data
iDevAffiliate has developed several tools and features to assist customers fulfill their GDRP obligations. We have prepared a Data Processing Agreement template for customers who process the personal data of EU residents. In addition, we offer the following solutions to some of the most common GDPR challenges.
- International Transfers
For customers concerned about transferring data outside the EU, iDevAffiliate offers a self-hosted version of its software, meaning that end user and affiliate data will not be sent to our servers. iDevAffiliate can also enter into EU Model Clauses with customers who wish to do so.
