    Lightbulb Kettle as Data Processor

    Hi All,
    Can i find some details on the below please.

    In relation to the upcoming law on personal data (GDPR) Kettle as Data Processor has sort of 3 key responsibilities:
    - Make themselves compliant
    - Educate Controllers (us, product consumers)
    - Provide a frame within the technology provided to enable us to be compliant
    I cant find any information on this, can anyone share some light?

    Thanks

    You're looking in the wrong place, I'm afraid.
    Kettle isn't a Data Processor as defined by the GDPR.

    Also, isn't it a bit late to worry about GDPR?
    Work on it began in 2012, approval was 2016.
    I mean, why not wait for another 90 days and see what happens?
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    Hi marabu,

    Thanks for the response, could you please let me know for the below things please,

    Do you mind responding that Kettle is a Data Processor, and the meaning of processing is: "Any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of
    personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording,
    organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use,
    disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or
    combination, restriction, erasure or destruction."
    As aData processor they have the responsability to 1. make themselves compliant, 2 Educate Controllers (us, product consumers) and 3 Provide a frame within the technology provided to enable us to be compliant

    Hi Vineeth,

    I agree with marabu. Kettle is a tool to process data. It doesn't hold (personal)
    data in any form within it's components - it's just a repository of meta-data that tells a process what to do with source/target data. It up to an organisation to protect/regulate what data it holds in the data sources/targets.

    Per the FAQ - A controller is the entity that determines the purposes, conditions and means of the processing of personal data, while the processor is an entity which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

    Just my 2-cents worth.
