GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation
We are trustworthy, responsible and ethical towards our clients, partners, employees, directors and other stakeholders in all of our operations. Accountor is a professional service provider who takes its responsibility to comply with applicable laws and regulations valid at the given time, as well as any rules and decisions imposed by relevant authorities. Therefore, we adhere to national and EU-level data protection regulations, official recommendations and guidelines, decisions imposed by relevant authorities, as well as, all of our processes and policies are based on the applicable legislation. This also applies to processing of personal data, no matter how the processing is carried out.
The General Data Protection Regulation (aka the GDPR) is the legislation imposed by the EU, which applies to the use of personal data. The GDPR was published in April 2016 and was fully applied from May 2018. Local governments are publishing complementing privacy legislations in 2018 and 2019 depending on the country.
Which Information Is Personal Data?
Personal data refers to any information from which a natural person can be directly or indirectly identified. It does not matter whether the information relates to an individual in person or in the context of professional or public life.
Examples of a personal data:
- a name
- a photo
- an email address
- voice or bank details
The GDPR’s Different Requirements to Various Stakeholders
GDPR has increased and tightened the obligations and requirements when personal data is processed. The organizations have to ensure their ability to comply with the GDPR. In practice, this means that organisations have to:
- Take proactive approach towards management of personal data
- Understand what data their business processes as well as how and where the data is retained
- Provide transparent information about the processing
- Take data protection into consideration in the business activities
- Ensure appropriate protection measures taking into account the risk level the processing may cause for individuals etc.
Sprinkle AB As a Service Provider
Data processor is a party processing personal data on behalf of other organisation. As a service provider, we usually process personal data on behalf of our customers in the role of a data processor, e.g. when providing
- payroll services
- accounting services
- hosted IT-services
When provide software and in these cases, the customer using the software is the controller and decide the means and purposes of the processing. In addition, we are a processor when we provide cloud services (SaaS) or other hosted IT services to our customers and sometimes when we provide consulting services.
However, when providing services Sprinkle AB does not only act as a data processor but also as a data controller. In such cases, we process personal data of our customer’s representatives, decision makers and other contact persons for example to
- Ensure the provision of services
- Manage and control our relationship with the customer
- To market our services
Consequently, in these cases we are responsible for the lawfulness of the processing.
Sprinkle AB As an Employer
Naturally, we process personal data of our employees in the employment relation. In such case, Sprinkle AB is a data controller who is responsible for the lawfulness of the processing no matter whether the processing is carried out internally or externally by the data processor. The same applies to leased employees.
In addition, Sprinkle AB may acquire some services for its employees that are closely related to the employment relation and personal data are processed therein. For example, when Sprinkle AB acquires occupational health care services. Sprinkle AB is not a data controller nor a data processor. Sprinkle AB just takes care of the expenses as part of the employment relation but does not have the right to control or decide on the personal data.
Sprinkle AB Compliance with the GDPR
Our personnel is trained and aware of the data protection requirements. The specific GDPR training is mandatory for all Sprinkle AB's employees.
We have defined processes, detailed guidance and interpretations on, inter alia,
- individual’s rights
- data breach management
- data protection impact assessment
Specific data protection clauses are incorporated into our agreements for customers and business partners. We are committed to ensure that our business partners are compliant with the GDPR.
Since security attacks are continuously getting stronger, it means that our security must be constantly monitored in order to stay protected from evolving threats. The impact and risks of personal data processing are assessed before starting processing and thereafter when needed, so that data protection is embedded into and maintained in all operations.
Furthermore, we are building data protection safeguards into our products and services from the earliest stages of development. We are currently in a process to build Group level Information Security Governance framework to harmonize information security activities in all business operations and units.
Information security activities are documented appropriately and reviewed on a regular basis.
