Schedule 1 (Data Processing Information)

Categories of data subject

Both business employees and the general public may have their information processed on Devonto servers, with the varied client base.

Types of Personal Data

As Controllers are the sole determiner of which data should be processed on their websites. It is impossible for the Processor to account for any and all types of Personal Data that may be processed. Most commonly, this will be the general contact information of users – such as their name, email address, phone number and postal address.

Purposes of processing

Controllers will be the sole determiner of the purpose of processing personal data on their website.

Security measures for Personal Data

The Processor takes great steps to ensuring a secure and safe digital environment is in place for all Personal Data being stored on the Devonto server. FTP and server-level write access is limited to the employees of the Processor and a select few third parties who have express permission to access the servers. Advanced security systems are in place to monitor traffic and actively protect websites from malicious activity.

Sub-processors of Personal Data

The Devonto servers are leased from iomart Group plc. They are fully GDPR compliant and control both physical and virtual access to our servers. We use the domain registration services of various third parties, including Fasthosts Ltd, GoDaddy Inc, 123 Reg Ltd and 1and1 Internet Ltd. Our email service provider is Microsoft Corporation. Our telephone provider is RingCentral Inc. Depending on the services selected by the Processor, the Controller may also configure Sub-processor accounts for Google, Amazon, CloudFlare or other entities at the Processor’s request.
