Taking German privacy and data protection laws to the next level, since May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) revolutionizes and unifies European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) data protection laws. Further, as the forerunner and gold standard in data protection, the GDPR inspires data protection laws across the globe, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act.
What’s different under the GDPR?
Important changes due to the GDPR include more rights for EU individuals, extensive data breach notification duties, strict security requirements, cross-border data protection, extensive accountability and easier enforcement. The GDPR allows for a fine of up to 4% of the global corporate group turnover. Consistent application matters: The European Court of Justice and the entire chapter 7 ensure the GDPR is applied cooperatively and consistently across the EEA. The GDPR supports the common data market, allowing for easier flow of personal data within the EEA and with third countries with comparable data protection standards. Measures such as Binding Corporate Rules, Privacy Shield certifications, and data protection model clauses secure processing of personal data in third countries with lower data protection standards. Please refer to our banking industry standard data processing addendum for details.

Are your data centers safe?
Yes. We use cloud service providers such as Amazon AWS, which are safe, ISO-certified and regularly audited.
Who is controller and processor for which processing?
Our view on acting as controller in light of recent case law: Generally, as the customer, you act as controller and we act as processor. You also act as controller and we act as processor for the anonymization for your purposes, for example for anonymous statistics about CoachHub in your company we create on your behalf. Once anonymization is complete, data is no longer personal and the GDPR no longer applies to it.
Are international data transfers GDPR compliant?
Data processing operations in third countries, as far as they occur, are GDPR-compliant. We have generally selected EU located/GDPR-compliant servers. We have concluded a DPA. In the event that an international data transfer is not covered e. g. by Privacy Shield, the DPA provides for a subsidiary relapse to binding corporate rules and standard contractual clauses pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR. We constantly monitor current case law and adapt our processing procedures accordingly.
