Data Processing Agreements

Data Processing Agreements

One way Boop, Inc. is fulfilling our commitment to the GDPR’s data protection and data transfer laws is by providing a Data Processing Agreement, which is a contract that documents Boop’s compliance with the GDPR requirements that apply to us as a data processor for your site. The Agreement also satisfies the requirement for standard model clauses that govern the transfer of your data to Boop, Inc. and its subsidiaries.

The Data Processing Agreement is an amendment to our Terms of Service and is available to all users.

Having a DPA does not change any of our privacy and security practices for site visitors. Everyone using our service gets the same high standards of privacy and security.

How do I get a Data Processing Agreement?

If you would like to sign a Data Processing Agreement with us, you can click the “Request a DPA” button in your settings while logged into your account. This will automatically send a DPA to your account’s email address which you can sign and return to for processing.

Do I need a Data Processing Agreement?

The data you share with Boop, about yourself, is covered by our Privacy Policy, which outlines Boop’s commitments on handling your data, in line with the GDPR. Some users – mostly businesses – may use Boop in a way that involves sharing data about other people with Boop.

For this type of information, the user (usually a business) is acting as a “Data Controller” – under GDPR, if the controller is handling data on EU residents, they should have a contract in place that applies to this controlled data and includes some additional commitments, above and beyond our standard policies. This “Data Processing Agreement” is a business to business agreement and is not relevant or needed for the typical free user or hobbyist.

If you are acting as a data controller in this way or have specific concerns about getting an Agreement to cover your use of Boop Services please get in touch and we will work with you to help.
