GDPR and use of data – Contractual clauses

Part 1 – Article 28 – Processor / GDPR


When processing must be carried out on behalf of a data controller, the latter only calls on subcontractors who offer sufficient guarantees as to the implementation of appropriate technical and organizational measures in such a way as to that the processing meets the requirements of this Regulation and guarantees the protection of the rights of the data subject.

The Processor shall not engage another Processor without the prior written permission, specific or general, of the Controller. In the case of a general written authorization, the processor informs the controller of any planned changes concerning the addition or replacement of other processors, thus giving the controller the opportunity to raise objections against these changes.

Processing by a processor is governed by a contract or other legal act under Union law or the law of a Member State, which is binding on the processor vis-à-vis the controller, defines the object and duration of the processing, the nature and purpose of the processing, the type of personal data and the categories of data subjects, and the obligations and rights of the controller. This contract or other legal act provides, in particular, that the subcontractor:

  1. (a) only process personal data on documented instructions from the controller, including with regard to transfers of personal data to a third country or to an international organisation, unless required to do so under Union law or the law of the Member State to which the processor is subject; in this case, the processor shall inform the controller of this legal obligation before the processing, unless the law concerned prohibits such information for important reasons of public interest;
  2. b) ensures that the persons authorized to process the personal data undertake to respect confidentiality or are subject to an appropriate legal obligation of confidentiality;
  3. c) take all measures required under Article 32;
  4. d) complies with the conditions referred to in paragraphs 2 and 4 to recruit another processor;
  5. (e) take into account the nature of the processing, help the controller, by appropriate technical and organizational measures, as far as possible, to fulfill his obligation to respond to requests made to him by data subjects in to exercise their rights under Chapter III;
  6. f) assists the controller in ensuring compliance with the obligations provided for in Articles 32 to 36, taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to the processor;
  7. (g) at the choice of the controller, delete all personal data or return them to the controller at the end of the provision of services relating to the processing, and destroy the existing copies, unless Union law or the law of the Member State requires the retention of personal data; And
  8. h) make available to the controller all the information necessary to demonstrate compliance with the obligations provided for in this Article and to enable audits to be carried out, including inspections, by the controller or another auditor it mandated, and contribute to these audits.

With regard to point h) of the first subparagraph, the processor shall immediately inform the controller if, in its opinion, an instruction constitutes a breach of this Regulation or of other provisions of Union law or of Member States relating to data protection.

Where a processor engages another processor to carry out specific processing activities on behalf of the controller, the same data protection obligations as set out in the contract or other legal act between the controller processing and the processor in accordance with paragraph 3, are imposed on that other processor by contract or by means of another legal act under Union law or the law of a Member State, in particular with regard to presenting sufficient guarantees as to the implementation of appropriate technical and organizational measures so that the processing meets the requirements of this Regulation. 

Where that other processor fails to fulfill its data protection obligations, the initial processor shall remain fully liable to the controller for the performance by the other processor of its obligations.

The application, by a subcontractor, of an approved code of conduct as provided for in Article 40 or of an approved certification mechanism as provided for in Article 42 may be used as an element to demonstrate the existence of the sufficient guarantees in accordance with paragraphs 1 and 4 of this article.

Without prejudice to a particular contract between the controller and the processor, the contract or other legal act referred to in paragraphs 3 and 4 of this article may be based, in whole or in part, on the standard contractual clauses referred to in paragraphs 7 and 8 of this Article, including where they form part of a certification issued to the controller or processor pursuant to Articles 42 and 43.

The Commission may establish standard contractual clauses for the matters referred to in paragraphs 3 and 4 of this Article and in accordance with the examination procedure referred to in Article 93(2).

A supervisory authority may adopt standard contractual clauses for the matters referred to in paragraphs 3 and 4 of this Article and in accordance with the consistency control mechanism referred to in Article 63.

The contract or other legal act referred to in paragraphs 3 and 4 shall be in written form, including in electronic format.

Without prejudice to Articles 82, 83 and 84, if, in breach of this Regulation, a processor determines the purposes and means of the processing, he is considered to be a controller with regard to this processing.
