Welcome to GDPRWise, an online GDPR tool designed for businesses, professionals and organisations.
GDPRWise is operated by GDPRWise BV, Jan Van Rijswijklaan 158-2 2018 Antwerpen with company registration number 0759426856. These Customer Terms & Conditions apply to all Customers who access or use the tool.
You may connect to the tool using any industry standard Internet browser. You are responsible for obtaining access to the Internet and any equipment to do so.
The person signing up for an account will be automatically assigned as account Owner & GDPR Coordinator. By GDPR Coordinator we mean the Customer contact who has day to day responsibility for the Customer account. Your Customer account is only for use by either a single legal entity (e.g. a company or organization) or an individual user. You must provide the Customer legal full name, address, a valid email address, and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process. We only request information that we feel is necessary to provide adequate service, to invoice our services and to comply with tax and legal obligations.
The customer is the controller for the personal data that the customer enters in the tool and for all activities for which the customer uses the tool. GDPRWise always fulfils the role of processor in these processes. GDPRWise will follow the customer’s instructions for processing, possible subcontracting, data-handling at the end of the contract and possible transfer of data. When processing the customer’s personal data GDPRWise takes adequate security measures with regard to staff and the appropriate technical and organisational measures, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs, and the nature, scope, context and the purpose of the processing as well as the risks varying in likelihood and severity to the rights and freedoms of natural persons associated with the processing. For said processing GDPRWise shall give the customer all the assistance it can in order to help the customer to fulfil its obligations under GDPR towards persons and authorities.
The Customer acknowledges that, if the Customer allows a third party to open an or provide access to the customer’s account on their behalf, the third party will be able to control account information, including Customer Data, and access to the Customer’s account.
You may invite users (“Users”) to access your account by inviting them to register as a User.
AVAILABILITY AND SUPPORT
We will endeavour to make GDPRWise available to the Customer and Users without interruption. Some unavailability of the tool is to be expected during maintenance or upgrade activities of which we will endeavour to notify the customer in advance, however we shall not be liable for the simple fact that for any reason GDPRWise is unavailable at any time or for any period.
We may suspend access to your account temporarily and without notice in the case of system failure, maintenance or repair or due to a Force Majeure Event (defined below).
We will provide technical support to you by email only and to the best of our abilities. Technical support will only be provided for bugs or errors that can de corrected by us. You agree to provide us with full and accurate details of all bugs and errors, on request. You acknowledge that we provide no warranty that all or any bugs or errors will be corrected.
The duration of any paid subscription (the “Term”) shall be of one year, beginning on the date of purchase of the paid subscription. It is automatically annually renewed for an equal Term of one year, unless either party provides notice of termination either through your account page on the tool or via email before the end of the Term to the other party. Emails to GDPRWise are to be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Any free trial account has a limited term of three months and shall be suspended automatically after 3 months. Your account will be terminated one month later. Upon termination of your account, your account and all data contained within it will be permanently deleted.
FEES, INVOICING & PAYMENT
The standard charges for the GDPRWise paid subscription and the services are based on the subscription version chosen by the Customer.
Customers will be billed annually and payment of all fees is due within 30 days of the date of all invoices. There will be no refund or credit for any part of a subscription term. Fees are chargeable and shall be payable until an account is terminated, even if you never use GDPRWise.
You are not required to provide payment card details for a free account. If you upgrade from a free account to a fee paying account there is no trial period. You will be charged immediately following any such upgrade.
All fees and charges are exclusive of all applicable federal, provincial, state, local or other governmental taxes, fees or charges (collectively, “Taxes”). The Customer is responsible for paying all Taxes associated with purchases made by the Customer under this Agreement, except when GDPRWise is legally obliged to pay or collect Taxes for which the Customer is responsible.
TERMINATION & SUSPENSION
We reserve the right to terminate your account if you fail to provide payment of any outstanding fees. We will provide you with prior notice by email of our intention to terminate your Customer account. If payment remains outstanding for a further 14 days thereafter, we reserve the right to terminate your account without further notice.
We may terminate your account immediately by giving you notice if your account is used to commit any breach of these Customer Terms & Conditions or the obligation to execute any and all contracts in good faith.
We may terminate these Customer Terms & Conditions for any other reason upon giving you 30 days notice.
