Clipsources (Service) role as a data processor

When providing software and services to a company, Clipsource is acting as a data processor for the personal data we process and store as part of providing the services. As a data processor, we will only process personal data in accordance with a client’s permission and instructions — for example, as set out in an agreement with us.

In some cases we, Clipsource, may act as Data Controllers, as we have defined the purpose of the processing of personal data. For example when personal data is used for sending information from our corporate press room and managing users that have signed up to access the Clipsource portal, e.g. www.clipsource.com.

Sources (Clients) role as a data controller

The data controller (Source) is responsible for the personal data processed and stored. A controller is responsible to individuals who engage with their individual brands detailing how they collect and use information, for what purposes and how they obtain consents (when applicable). If data subjects wants to know what data is maintained about them or decide they want to discontinue their relationship with the Source, it is the data controller’s responsibility to adhere to those requests.

Clipsource is a natural part of the Clients duties as data controller, in the sense that Clipsource services constitutes parts of the processing of personal data that the Source must ensure are compliant with applicable privacy legislation. Thus, when Clipsource processes personal data on behalf of its clients, we must do so in accordance with privacy legislation applicable for data processors.

Purpose of processing personal data

We process personal information in order to provide our services and to facilitate and enable Sources who uses our services to collect User information in order to manage and distribute press information and other content.

We also use personal data based on activities, for example messages sent by our Sources and messages sent to support or feedback sent to us through features created for that purpose. To the extent possible, we use your personal information in an aggregated or anonymized form in this treatment.

How is personal data collected and processed?

Clients may collect personal information by adding individual Users or by importing User lists. Upon adding Users, clients can create their own distribution lists for different type of content and messages. They can also use functions to analyze how Users interact with, and respond to their content and messages. Users can choose to Sign up, register and add personal data to their account. By doing so they accept our Terms and conditions.

Clipsource will not use Personal data in any manner that is incompatible with the purposes for which they were collected.

  • Name and contact details such as name, email address and telephone number.
  • Language preference and country
  • Company name
  • Information published on publicly accessible sources, such as social media and other media channels online, for example Twitter, Facebook or other platforms; and Information about interaction with emails sent to a User.

Clipsource provides the tools to allow for Clients to not retain data longer than is necessary and to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. When a Users’ account is deleted, all personal data collected through the platform will be deleted, as required by applicable law.

Registered Users can at any time access and edit, update or delete their personal information by logging in with their username and password to the Clipsource platform and any press room powered by the Clipsource platform.

Users that have not registered an account can at any point of receiving a message sent from a Source on the Clipsource platform choose to unsubscribe. By unsubscribing from a Sources distribution list, all stored personal information of the user will be removed.

Transfer of personal data outside the EU/EEA

Clipsource uses subcontractors to process personal data and may export our Clients data outside the EU/EEA in this regard. These subcontractors are typically vendors of cloud services or other IT hosting services. When using subcontractors, Clipsource will enter into a data processing agreement (DPA) with subcontractors in order to safeguard your privacy rights and to fulfil our obligations towards our Clients. When subcontractors are located outside the EU, Clipsource ensures legal grounds for such international transfers on behalf of you or our Clients, for example by ensuring that the country in which the recipient is located ensures an adequate level of data protection according to the European Commission or by use of standard contractual clauses that the European Commission has issued ensuring suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms.

Security measures

We maintain appropriate safeguards and safety standards to protect personal data against unauthorized access, enlightenment or abuse.

You can exercise your rights in relation to the processing of personal data whether your right concerns the processing of our Sources (Clients) or Clipsources processing.

Right of access and rectification

Users have the right to access information regarding what personal data is processed and to access and rectify such personal data.

  • you object to the processing of personal data and Clipsource or our clients do not have any overriding legitimate grounds for the processing
  • The processed personal data is unlawfully processed; or the processed personal data has to be erased for compliance with legal obligations.

Right to restriction

This right gives an individual an alternative to requiring data to be erased; in others, it allows the individual to require data to be held in limbo whilst other challenges are resolved.

If personal data are ‘restricted’, then the data controller may only store the data. It may not further process the data unless:

  • the individual consents; or
  • the processing is necessary for establishment etc. of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important (Union or Member State) public interest.

Right to object to further processing

If Users exercise their right to generally opt-out from such processing they will not receive any further emails from any of our Sources and their personal data will not be further processed (except for the purpose of ensuring that the choice to opt-out is respected by registering the email address in order to identify the Users as blocked from being subject to further processing). Users should note that further processing of personal data may still occur if a User has more than one email address registered to the Platform.

Any User may at any time exercise the right to opt-out from any further processing of personal data by Sources, by managing email settings or by choosing to unsubscribe via any email sent from the Source. By unsubscribing, Users personal information is deleted from the Source email list.

Users that has consented to processing may at any time exercise their right to generally opt-out from the processing of personal data by deleting personal information from individual Sources email lists or by deleting their account in full. Note that further processing of personal data may still occur if User has more than one email address registered to the Clipsource platform.
