Company data

We have already resolved the question about customers in B2B environment, but why doesn't appear in the scope the "customers employees" category..? What the difference between “customers" and “suppliers" from this point of view of their employees..?

Answer:

Let me start by clarifying what “company data” means and why I said is not subject to the EU GDPR. Company data is the data that identifies a legal entity (a company) and it is not linked to an individual. Take for example the name and addresses of the company like IBM UK and its registered address in PO Box 41, North Harbour , Portsmouth , Hampshire, PO6 3AU , Tel: +44 (0) 23 92 56 1000 – this does not constitute personal data, and this information is usually publicly available on sites such as the Trade Register.

Coming back to your question “customer employees” refer to the individuals that are working for the companies that are using your services and whose personal data you are processing either as a controller or a processor.

“Supplier information” refers to the personal da ta belonging to individuals that are working for your suppliers.

There is no material difference between the “supplier” and “customer” employees but nevertheless there are two distinct categories.

Thank you very much for your clarification. But, in my opinion, when in your video expkain that the GDPR objectives are data of ‘customers, suppliers and suppliers employees’ there is sn explicit reference to B2C relationship, because generally speaking in a B2B relationship I could manage ‘customers employees’ data as well. Do you agree with me..?
Kind regards
Bruno

As long as we are talking about personal data the EU GDPR comes into play, so it doesn't matter whose data are concerned, could be employees, customers, customers employees, suppliers employees.
