The General Data Protection Regulation imposes different obligations on companies, depending on the role in which the company processes personal data. Possible roles defined in the General Data Protection Regulation include the controller, the joint controller and the processor.
The company may have several roles depending on the situation. The same company may, for example, act as a controller when processing and processing the data of its own employees or clients when providing online services or payroll services to other companies. With this tool, you can only assess the fulfilment of data protection requirements in one role at a time. For this reason, it is advisable to select first the most extensive processing of personal data by the company. The object may be, for example, the processing of personal data of the users of an online service offered by employees or companies. Select the role based on the subject of the assessment.
If you wish, you can carry out a self-assessment several times to get tips on how to proceed in different situations according to data protection legislation.
