B2B company

We are a B2B company, which doesn't directly process the data of the end user. Do the same rules apply here for B2B and B2c companies?

Answer:

Being a B2B company does not automatically mean that EU GDPR does not apply to you. You could be providing services( as a processor) to another company ( as controller) but while doing that you might be processing data of individuals. For example, a marketing company “A” performing an SMS campaign on behalf on company “B”. Company “B” would be processing data of individuals even if the individuals themselves are not customers of company “B”.

So, “directly” processing data as a controller in not the only prerequisite for the EU GDPR to be applicable to you.

Also, if you are established in the EU that would make you a controller in terms of processing data of your employees so the EU GDPR would be again applicable.

To find out more about controllers and processor you can go through our article “EU GDPR controller vs. processor – What are the differences? https://advisera.com/eugdpracademy/knowledgebase/eu-gdpr-controller-vs-processor-what-are-the-differences/ as well as our free EU GDPR Foundations Course https://advisera.com/training/eu-gdpr-foundations-course//
