Sub-processors are third-party businesses engaged by a processor for performing data processing on behalf of a controller. According to the GDPR, these companies are also accountable for the protection of an individual’s personal data. Data protection obligations of sub-processors are to be established by way of contract or other legal acts under the Union or Member State law. This includes providing sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures as specified in the regulation.

Blitzz partners with organizations, that like itself adhere to global standards and regulations. Apart from evaluation for technical requirements, Blitzz ensures examination of data protection measures, compliance with Blitzz’ security requirements, and security audit reports before the closing of the contract.
