2. Who is responsible for the processing of personal data?

2.1. Controller
MOTORCYCLE-DIARIES is responsible for the processing and decides alone or in cooperation with others which personal data are being collected as well as the purposes and the technical and organisational means with regard to the processing of those personal data.

2.2. Processor(s)
MOTORCYCLE-DIARIES is free to rely on data processors. A processor is the natural or legal person who processes your personal data upon request and on behalf of the data controller. The processor is required to ensure the security and confidentiality of the data. The processor shall always act on the instructions of the data controller.

Motorcyle-Diaries uses a number of online data processors that collect, store and process your data. These data processors are natural persons or legal entities that process the personal data on behalf of the data controller Motorcyle-Diaries. The natural persons who, under the direct authority of the party responsible for the processing, are authorised to process the data do not fall within this category.

We have carefully selected these processors. The selected processors offer notably all the adequate guarantees with regard to technical and organizational security measures regarding the processing of your personal data. They also satisfy all the other requirements of the relevant legislation. The following categories of processors have been selected:

  • A  host for the data.

The controller is not responsible for any loss or corruption of personal data, identity theft, data theft, viruses or Trojans, SQL injections or other attacks on computer systems or online cloud portals. The processors have gained professional expertise in their domain and decide therefore in an autonomous manner over the most technically appropriate application to process the data. The data controller is not expected to have the same expertise and speciality.
