Processing of user personal data

It is acknowledged and agreed that in the event of processing of personal data by virtue of our online services, the employer / manager/ entity will be acting as a data controller and we will be processing personal data on their behalf as a data processor. This section seeks to ensure compliance in case of such processing of personal data as described above, with the applicable data protection laws of the Republic of Cyprus, including but not limited to the Processing of Personal Data (Protection of Individuals) Law 138(I) 2001, as amended, replaced or superseded from time to time, the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”) and laws implementing or supplementing the GDPR (collectively referred to as “Data Protection Regulation”). For the purposes of this section, the terms “data controller”, “data subject”, “data processor” “personal data”, “processing”, “third countries” shall have the same meaning as the GDPR.

The subject matter of the processing will be the provision of the scheduling and other services provided by us. The duration of the processing will be for as long as we have a contractual relationship. The nature and purpose of processing will be the provision of the online services. The personal data we process on your behalf include general identification and contact information such as name, address, telephone number, email, profile photograph, credit card and payment information. The categories of data subjects will be the users of our online services.

The data controller hereby instructs and authorises us to process personal data for the purposes of providing our online services and hereby grants us a general authorization to appoint any third party processor as described in section 7 “Sharing your Personal Data with third parties” of our Privacy Policy. We are obliged to choose third party processor diligently and regularly monitor their performance.

We shall comply with the Data Protection Legislation during the processing of personal data.

We will implement appropriate technical and organizational measures in such a manner that processing will meet the requirements of Data Protection Legislation and ensure the protection of rights of data subjects. In particular:

  • We will process personal data only for the provision of our online services, including with regard to transfers of personal data to third countries, as required in Article 28 (3) (a) of the GDPR.
  • We will ensure that the persons authorised to process personal data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.
  • Taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, we will implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to that risk, including any measures that may be deemed necessary pursuant to Article 32 of the GDPR.
  • We will ensure that any third party processor appointed by us will have the same obligations as imposed under this section and applicable Data Protection Legislation. Where the third party processor fails to fulfil its data protection obligations, we will remain fully liable for the performance of the third party processor’s obligations.
  • Where the third party processor fails to fulfil its obligations under the Data Protection Legislation, we will remain fully liable to the data controller, for the performance of the obligations.
  • Taking into account the nature of the processing, we may assist the data controller insofar as this is possible, to respond to requests by data subjects exercising their rights under any Data Protection Legislation.
  • We may process personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA). The foregoing right is subject to such transfers being under the terms of the EU Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses or similar approved mechanisms such as the EU-US Privacy Shield framework.
  • We will notify the data controller without undue delay after becoming aware of a personal data breach or if we receive a request from a data subject under any Data Protection Legislation. Taking into account the nature of processing and the information available to us in certain cases we may assist the data controller in ensuring compliance with the obligations pursuant to Articles 32 to 36 of the GDPR.
  • We will delete or return all the personal data to the data controller after the end of the provision of our online services and will delete existing copies within a reasonable time frame unless we are required by law to store such personal data.
  • We will make available to the data controller any necessary information to demonstrate compliance with the Data Protection Legislation, including, where this is deemed necessary, to audits and inspections.
 

Severability

If any of the Terms of Service including the limitation of liability is found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, then same will be severed from the Terms of Service which remain in full force and effect.  The invalid provision shall nonetheless be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and you will at least agree to accept a similar effect as the invalid, unenforceable or non-binding provision, given the contents and purpose of these Terms of Service.

 

Applicable Law

The Terms of Service shall be governed by the laws of the Republic of Cyprus.

 

Miscellaneous

We may transfer our rights and obligations to another organization but this will not affect your rights or your obligations under these Terms of Service. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms of Service to another person if we agree in writing. If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms of Service or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean we will automatically waive any later default by you. Any rights not expressly granted are reserved.
