The European Parliament adopted the GDPR in April 2016, replacing an outdated data protection directive from 1995. It carries provisions that require businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states. We will apply the GDPR to all the users whose personal data is either stored within Teatime or who use our services, whether inside or outside of the EU.
Teatime processes Personal Data as a Controller, as defined in the Directive and the GDPR.
In the GDPR “controller’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union/Member State law.
For user data, as outlined in the section 1.2, Teatime will be the data controller.
The processor is the entity which processes personal data on behalf of the controller under the controller’s instructions.
Teatime is not a Processor.
