Our customers are responsible for ensuring that the privacy of individuals whose personal data they are processing is respected, including communicating to these individuals in their own privacy policies with whom the individual’s personal data is being shared and by whom it is being processed.
As a data processor, we may share personal data where instructed by our customers (the data controller).
