As the Data Controller, you are responsible for obtaining the consent of your Data Subjects (those whose personal data we process on your behalf) to store their data and you are responsible for what data is collected, how and for what purpose.

We require you to indicate to us why you are collecting personal data, what you will do with it, the duration it needs to be held, and whether it should be deleted or returned at the end of your subscription. We will only process the data we process for you in accordance with your documented instructions. We will notify you if in our opinion an instruction of yours infringes the GDPR.

We require your consent to us sub-contracting the storage of your data to sub-processors:

- Personal Data (such as email address, work mobile number and job title) and Feedback Data (as collected by CIOPulse surveys and forms) are stored in a secure (ISO27001 compliant) data centre in Sydney, Australia.

We will assist you to satisfy your responsibilities under the GDPR, in particular in relation to security obligations and data breach notifications. We will make available to you all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with the obligations under the GDPR.

Our sole obligation to you where a data subject wishes to exercise their rights, is to notify you that a right has been exercised.

We will if necessary, and with your consent, anonymise personal data such that the overall integrity of your data is maintained while individual data is no longer personally identifiable.
