We are being asked to fill in the "data exporter" during an agreement with a third party, and my understanding is that it should refer to our company name, but I want to be sure.

Answer:

The EU GDPR does not provide a definition for the “data importer” or the “data exporter”, nevertheless these definitions can be found in COMMISSION DECISION 2010/87/EU on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors established in third countries under Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council.

According to article 2 of the abovementioned Decision:
- “data exporter” means the controller who transfers the personal data;
- “data importer” means the processor established in a third country who agrees to receive from the data exporter personal data intended for processing on the data exporter’s behalf after the transfer in accordance with his instructions and the terms of this Decision and who is not subject to a third country’s system ensuring adequate protection within the meaning of Article 25(1) of Directive 95/46/EC.
