About this Data Processing Agreement
This Data Processing Agreement (“DPA”) supersedes and replaces all previous agreements made in respect of Processing Personal Data and data protection.
This DPA determines the conditions of the Processing by Pick-It of Client Personal Data communicated by, at the initiative or on behalf of Client and/or any Users in the context of the Agreement. Such Processing will exclusively take place for the benefit of Client and for the purposes as defined by Client.
Parties agree that Pick-It is a Processor and the Client is a Controller in respect of all services provided by Pick-It related to the Agreement. The aforementioned indication of the Parties as Controller and Processor is consistent with the terms and definitions given within the GDPR.
2.3 Pick-It will only process the Client Personal Data according to the documented instructions of Client, and will not use these Personal Data for its own purposes.
2.4 If Pick-It is legally obliged to proceed with any Processing of Personal Data, Pick-It, unless this would violate applicable mandatory rules, will inform Client of such obligation.
Any capitalized terms not defined in this DPA shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the Terms and Conditions or in the GDPR.
