2) If personal data is transferred from India to one of the EU countries, then will it be considered as transfer to third country?
3) If we collect personal data from a site like ‘xxx’, will it be a joint controller for us?
4) In a case, where we are Processor, is Privacy Notice applicable?

Answers:

1. The answer is quite simple “NO” unless you want to advertise a job. You need the consent of the data subject for sending marketing materials via SMS and email.
2. If the data exporter is located in India and the data is transferred in the EU is not a personal data transfer.
3. Certainly not, both you and “xxx’ would be separate controllers. The only difference is that you obtain the data form a third party but both you and the data controllers on your own separate processing activities.
4. According to EU GDPR article 13 – “Information to be provided where personal data are collected from the data subject” https://advisera.com/eugdpracademy/gdpr/information-to-be-provided-where-personal-data-are-collected-from-the-data-subject/ and article 14 – “Information to be provided where personal data have not been obtained from the data subject” https://advisera.com/eugdpracademy/gdpr/information-to-be-provided-where-personal-data-have-not-been-obtained-from-the-data-subject/ the controllers are the ones that need to provide the notice to the data subjects
