Data transfer agreements (whether data controller to processor, subcontractor to processor, or any other combination of parties) are not new, but with the advent of the GDPR, they benefit from an upgrade and require a much higher level of control and detail.

The GDPR stipulates that a controller must only use a processor that provides sufficient guarantees that it will take appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure that the processing complies with the requirements of the GDPR and that the rights of the data subject are respected. Accordingly, controllers should exercise due diligence with regard to processors envisaged before the processor, including indirect transfers. .
