SSLP Group and Brexit
SSLP Group Ltd utilises datacentres in both the UK and Eire. You can read our “appropriate safeguards” statement (pdf document) here.
In the absence of an Adequacy Agreement being in place by June 2021, SSLP Group has, in place, an agreement with the Eire datacentre that enables the free flow of data between Processor (datacentre) and Client (SSLP Group Ltd) in the form of a GDPR Data Processing Addendum.
This is the statement from our Eire Datacentre providers:
Transfers from the EEA to the UK after the transition period. If no special arrangements for transfer are agreed between the UK and the EU, then customers wishing to transfer personal data from the EEA to the UK (including to our London Region) can rely on the Standard Contractual Clauses for the transfer. The Standard Contractual Clauses are a part of every AWS services agreement and are contained in our AWS Data Processing Addendum. (pdf document)
By visiting our website, you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this policy.
Post Brexit data transfers from EU Data Controllers – advice to all clients transferring data from the EU to the UK for processing
As a UK data processor, SSLP Group Ltd are reminding all Data Controllers based in the EU to ensure there is a Standard Contractual Clause (SCC) in place in the event that the EU does not put an Adequacy Agreement in place by June 2021.
As you are aware, there are no restrictions placed on the flow of data from the UK to the EU. However, data flowing from the EU to the UK will require either an Adequacy Agreement or for the Data Controller to issue a standard contractual clause to the UK-based Data Processor for signature and agreement.
Here is the current advice from the Information Commissioner’s Office:
If you are a UK business or organisation that receives data from contacts in the EEA, you need to take extra steps to ensure that the data can continue to flow at the end of the transition period.
- UK is committed to maintaining the high standards of the GDPR and the government plans to incorporate it into UK law alongside the Data Protection Act 2018 at the end of the transition period. UK businesses will be covered by the UK data protection regime.
- The UK government has stated that transfers to the EEA will not be restricted. So if you send data from the UK to the EEA you will still be able to do so and you don’t need to take any additional steps.
- If a business or organisation in the EEA is sending you personal data, then it will still need to comply with EU data protection laws. You will need to take action with them so the data can continue to flow.
- For most businesses and organisations, SCCs (Standard Contractual Clauses) are the best way to keep data flowing to the UK. Use our SCC Interactive Guidance tool to help you.
The ICO website has many useful tools including an SCC tool that will produce the required document at the end. The link to the tool is above. Please forward the completed and signed SCC to DPO@SSLPOST.COM for countersignature by our DPO.
As the SCC has to be driven by the Data Controller, SSLPost will not be issuing these but countersigning and returning those sent by Data Protection Officers of clients based in the EU.
You may choose to wait until the final decisions and agreements have been made, anticipating the Adequacy Agreement will be issued. However, in the case that this does not occur in a timely fashion, the SCC will ensure data can flow freely across borders.
