Privacy & Security FAQ
What is GDPR?
The abbreviation GDPR refers to the legal act adopted by the European Union that regulates the principles of personal data protection, which came into force on May 25, 2018. The act aims to ensure an appropriate level of personal data protection of individuals and harmonize the rules regarding data processing in the EU. It applies to every company providing services to EU citizens, even if it is not based in the EU.
Is ClickMeeting required to comply with GDPR?
As a company operating under Polish law, ClickMeeting is required to implement and comply with GDPR, like any company that stores or processes the personal data of EU citizens and markets services or products to those citizens, even if the company does not have a business location in the EU.
What does ClickMeeting do to comply with GDPR?
In order to ensure compliance of our activities with GDPR we have audited the entire organization, introduced appropriate technological solutions in the service we offer, changed our internal policies, reviewed and renegotiated our agreements with data processors. We regularly train our employees and constantly monitor the current standards to ensure the highest data processing security, making appropriate changes in our organization when necessary.
What security certifications does ClickMeeting have?
ClickMeeting holds a number of certificates which include an ISO/IEC 27701:2019 and GDPR compliance certificate related to ClickMeeting’s Management System in the context of the ClickMeeting Platform. The certificate was issued by Bureau Veritas Certification.
Does ClickMeeting process any personal data?
Yes, ClickMeeting participates in the processing of personal data, both as a data controller (of ClickMeeting customer data) and as a processor (of customer webinar participants).
Does ClickMeeting collect personal data correctly?
I am a ClickMeeting customer. Who is the controller (owner) of my personal data?
I am a webinar attendee. Who is the controller (owner) of my personal data?
The ClickMeeting customer who has an account on our platform and organizes an event is the controller of the personal data of the webinar attendees. In this case, ClickMeeting acts solely as a personal data processor.
Does ClickMeeting conclude data processing agreements?
Yes, because ClickMeeting is a data processor for the personal data of webinar attendees, we create data processing agreements between ClickMeeting and our customers. GDPR specifies the duty to conclude such agreements and standard provisions to include.
Does ClickMeeting make its data processing agreement template available?
Yes. ClickMeeting encourages its customers to use the data processing agreement drafted by ClickMeeting that is tailored to the service we provide and assures appropriate security standards. The data processing agreement template can be found here.
Does ClickMeeting use sub-processors in the course of providing the service and the processing of personal data entrusted by its customers?
Yes, as it is necessary to provide our services properly and at the highest level. ClickMeeting is a global company that allows you to use the service almost anywhere in the world. Primarily because of that, ClickMeeting engages other entities in the course of providing the service to which it further entrusts the processing of personal data received from customers. This means that there occurs the so-called personal data sub-processing.
Please note that the sub-processing in the sense mentioned above does not include any ancillary services that ClickMeeting orders from other entities to assist in the provision of the ClickMeeting service, such as for example telecommunications services, user support and communication services, auditing or the disposal of data media services. However, also with respect to such ancillary services ClickMeeting concludes adequate legal agreements and takes appropriate measures to safeguard the protection and security of data.
