We take the privacy and security of your data seriously and are ISO/IEC 27701 Certified. As such, we have internal procedures and processes in place for maintaining compliance with applicable laws regarding data processing and security protocols. Following is an overview of EventBuilder's role in processing Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and our customers' role in managing Personally Identifiable Information.

Definitions

ISO/IEC 27701 Certification - A Privacy Information Management System standard published in August 2019 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation. The GDPR strengthens security protection of personal data in the European Union. 

CCPA - California Consumer Privacy Act. A state statute giving consumers more control over the personal information businesses collect about them. 

PII - Personally Identifiable Information - PII is information that identifies, relates to, describes, references or is capable of being associated with, or could be reasonably linked - directly or indirectly - with a particular individual consumer or device. Examples include name, address, date of birth,  race, citizenship, employment status, non-public education information protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, and product purchase histories.

PII Controller - The PII controller is the entity that determines the purpose and means for processing PII, defines why and how PII is processed, and is responsible for the implementation of privacy and security protocols to meet applicable legal standards.

PII Processor - The PII processor then processes PII on behalf of and in accordance with the instructions and privacy controls set by the PII controller. 

EventBuilder As a PII Processor

EventBuilder is a processor of your PII. This role is determined by both internal and external factors relevant to context and intended outcomes under ISO/IEC 27701 framework. Internal factors include EventBuilder's commercial purpose and contractual obligations to customers. External factors include legal and regulatory requirements that apply to our commercial activities, meeting the standards of the GDPR, CCPA, and any federal and state consumer privacy laws.

Our Customers' Responsibilities as a PII Controller

Our customers are the controller of PII. As such, they are responsible for collecting personal information, determining what to collect, changing or modifying collected information, how the PII will be used, and for what purpose. The PII controller also decides how long the data is kept, and when to dispose of it.
