Joint Controller Agreement Definition

The company is a joint controller of rent information, including rents. It will decide what information it needs from residents to establish and manage leases, but will share this data with the university. The parties acknowledge that they are joint data controllers for the purposes of data protection legislation and at different times during the term of the agreements and that they may process personal data on behalf of the other. Annex 1 defines the scope and duration of processing by the parties, the types of personal data and the categories of data subjects. If, as a joint controller of a person, you had to pay compensation but were not fully responsible for the damage, you may be able to recover from another controller or subcontractor the part of the compensation for which they were responsible. The companies are joint controllers of the personal data processed in the context of the competition, since they have both decided on the purposes and means of the processing. A house administration runs dormitories for the owner, the university. The company enters into rental agreements with students on behalf of the university and chases away any rent arrears. She collects the rent and transmits it to the university after taking a commission.

While it is not easy to determine whether this is a joint responsibility or data processing on behalf of a controller, it can generally be determined by the degree of influence of a company on the purposes and/or means of processing. The following points can help evaluate whether a processor is actually a controller. Yes. Individuals can claim compensation from co-responsible persons in the same way as any single manager. Any joint controller is liable for all damage caused by the processing, unless he is able to demonstrate that he is in no way responsible for the event that causes the damage. The agreement between controllers is not relevant for these purposes. Shared responsibility means that different bodies jointly determine the purposes and means of data processing. . . .
