Controller

About this contract party

The term "Controller" tends to be used interchangeably with the term "Data Controller", and has its routes in data protection regulations, such as the EU's GDPR (which has been incorporated into UK law after the UK's exit from the EU). It refers to individuals and companies which, alone or jointly with others, determine the purpose and means of processing people's personal data. It is common to see contracts which refer to the Controller in industries which deal with a lot of data such as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies, marketing companies and other technology firms. Controllers are typically referenced alongside other terms found in data protection regulations, like the "Processor", "Data Subject", "Personal Data", "Personal Data Breach" and "Processing".

Data Processing Agreement (Controller friendly) (Taylor Vinters)

This template can be used where a controller appoints a processor to perform services that will result in the processor processing personal data. It is important to ensure you have accurately identified the roles of each party in respect of the personal data being processed. The controller is the entity determining the purpose and means of processing personal data and the processor (the “Provider”) is the entity which processes the personal data on behalf of the controller. This template should not be used for controller to controller data sharing arrangements. This template is a controller friendly version.
