Joint Controllers Agreements

Updated: 2022-05-05

1. Introduction

What is the difference between a controller, processor, and joint controller?

Controllers are the main decision-makers – they exercise overall control over the purposes and means of processing personal data. In our case, every entity from the FundingBox capital group is a separate data controller.

If two or more controllers jointly determine the purposes and means of processing the same personal data, they are joint controllers. However, they are not joint controllers if they are processing the same data for different purposes:

Processors act on behalf of, and only on the instructions of, the particular controller.

Processors do not bear the same level of compliance responsibility as controllers. But they do carry responsibility for some compliance in their own rights, such as security, data breach notification, and accountability.

Joint controllersto jointly control the data – are not required to enter a legal contract, but they must have a transparent arrangement that sets out their agreed roles and responsibilities for complying with the GDPR. The essence of this arrangement should be made available to anyone interested.
