Data Processors for FotoWare as a Service

1. Location and compliance with data transfer to third countries

FotoWare provides users with a fully self-service Digital Asset Management system in the cloud. When a customer signs up for a FotoWare solution, the first choice to make is that of data center – i.e. where the data will be stored. As of the time of writing, FotoWare can be deployed in Microsoft Azure data centers in Europe West, US East, Germany (German Cloud) and Australia East.

Customers in the EU will have their solution hosted in the EU West data center unless they explicitly choose otherwise.

FotoWare also uses several third-party solutions to provide services necessary for the FotoWare DAM offering. These data processors are listed below, with an explanation of what they are used for and the data we relay to them.

In order to comply with GDPR Chapter V regarding transfer of personal data outside the EEA, you can rely on having your data stored within the EU.

In some circumstances FotoWare uses data processors located outside the EEA, that may in limited manners process personal data on behalf of FotoWare. Please see the overview given regarding description and purposes of these limited processing operations in the list given below. Data transfer to third countries is based on the EU Model Clauses, approved by the European Commission.
