GDPR Contract Update
Both MaritzCX (processor) and its customers (controllers) are jointly and separately responsible for certain actions under the GDPR. Therefore, the GDPR requires shared responsibility to protect an individual’s privacy rights. GDPR Article 28 requires that a contract be in place between a controller and a processor. For years, the MaritzCX [Terms of Service and Master Services Agreement] has provided the fundamental legal requirements and obligations regarding data ownership, confidentiality, processing responsibilities, security of data, breach notification, and more.
Sub-processors and MaritzCX: As an Enterprise solution, the MaritzCX team provides a comprehensive suite of services. While we have long-standing relationships with established suppliers, the majority of work is performed in-house. With only a few exceptions, customer data provided to MaritzCX as part of your program efforts is maintained solely by the MaritzCX team.
However, if a customer of MaritzCX desires to update their agreement with MaritzCX with a GDPR-specific language, please email MaritzCX at firstname.lastname@example.org.
