Suppliers & Products
Our Suppliers area offers a comprehensive list of suppliers and their products, with instant mapping. As part of our product mapping process GDPRiS stores information on the standard data processed by each supplier. GDPRiS goes a step further by capturing the legal basis for processing, retention information and how the rights of the data subject are met
Our Suppliers area forms an integral part of demonstrating your compliance under GDPR.
Which Suppliers should be added to the GDPRiS tool?
Confusion may arise to which of the hundreds of suppliers used by a school should become part of a data audit and thus be added to GDPRiS.
Every supplier does not need to be added into GDPRiS, only the ones where the school is the principal or shared data controller.
Here are some examples:
A book supplier asks the person ordering the books for their name, phone number and email address. The book supplier is the data controller and is responsible to keep your data safe and you have all the rights to ensure it is safe and correctly managed. However, this supplier would not be part of your audit.
THIS SUPPLIER WOULD NOT BE ADDED TO GDPRiS
A book supplier has an area online where a teacher can test their students on the content of their books. The teacher uploads student names and student’s login in to do the tests. Here is an example where the supplier is processing data for the data controller (the school).
THIS SUPPLIER WOULD BE ADDED TO GDPRiS
