What is a Subprocessor:

A subprocessor is a third party data processor engaged by WhosOnLocation, who has or potentially will have access to or process Service Data (which may contain Personal Data). WhosOnLocation engages different types of subprocessors to perform various functions as explained in the tables below. WhosOnLocation refers to third parties that do not have access to or process Service Data but who are otherwise used to provide the Services as “subcontractors” and not subprocessors.

Due Diligence:

WhosOnLocation undertakes to use a commercially reasonable selection process by which it evaluates the security, privacy and confidentiality practices of proposed subprocessors that will or may have access to or process Service Data.

Contractual Safeguards:

WhosOnLocation requires its subprocessors to satisfy equivalent obligations as those required from WhosOnLocation (as a Data Processor) including but not limited to the requirements to:

  • in connection with their subprocessing activities, use only personnel who are reliable and subject to a contractually binding obligation to observe data privacy and security, to the extent applicable, pursuant to applicable data protection laws;
  • Provide regular training in security and data protection to personnel to whom they grant access to Personal Data;
  • implement and maintain appropriate technical and organisational measures (including measures consistent with those to which WhosOnLocation is contractually committed to adhere insofar as they are equally relevant to the subprocessor’s processing of Personal Data on WhosOnLocation’s behalf) and provide an annual certification that evidences compliance with this obligation. In the absence of such certification WhosOnLocation reserves the right to audit the subprocessor;
  • promptly inform WhosOnLocation about any actual or potential security breach; and
  • cooperate with WhosOnLocation in order to deal with requests from data controllers, data subjects or data protection authorities, as applicable.

This policy does not give Subscribers any additional rights or remedies and should not be construed as a binding agreement. The information herein is only provided to illustrate WhosOnLocation’s engagement process for subprocessors as well as to provide the actual list of third party subprocessors, subcontractors and content delivery networks used by WhosOnLocation as of the date of this policy (which WhosOnLocation may use in the delivery and support of its Services).

Infrastructure Subprocessors – Service Data Storage

WhosOnLocation owns or controls access to the infrastructure that WhosOnLocation uses to host Service Data submitted to the Services, other than as set forth below. Currently, the WhosOnLocation production systems for the Services are located in co-location facilities in the United States, Germany, United Kingdom, Canada, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. Subscriber accounts are established in one of these regions based on where the Subscriber is located; the Subscriber’s Service Data subsequently remains in that region; but may be shifted among data centers within a region to ensure performance and availability of the Services. The following table describes the countries and legal entities engaged in the storage of Service Data by WhosOnLocation.
