What is a Data Controller and a Data Processor?

GDPR introduces three important roles, which affect the rights and responsibilities an entity has. The three roles are:

  • Data Subject: a natural person from whom data is available and who should be able to determine how their data will be collected, stored, and/or moved;
  • Data Controller: a legal or natural person controlling the processing of personal data belonging to a Data Subject;
  • Data Processor: a legal or natural person performing the processing of personal data belonging to a Data Subject;

Instead of trying to go into the deeper details of what a Data Subject, Data Controller and a Data Processor is and how it is determined, we recommend having a look at the article if you like to read more about the subject. While this isn’t strictly necessary to know as a user of Tenno Network, it still important as it relates to understanding how your data and information is processed by various parts of our infrastructure.
