This article explains in detail where YAMM’s data is stored and how our processing complies with GDPR. It also explains our compliance with GDPR’s International Data Transfer clause.
Legitimacy of our data processing operations
We store and process your user and usage data (refer to article: [DATA STORAGE] What data is stored by YAMM and how is it used?) in Firebase, the Google cloud-hosted database.
The physical storage of YAMM data and processing is protected under Data Processing and Security Terms of Google Cloud Platform.
YAMM is GDPR compliant as we do not store or transfer any personal data. This is because your customer’s data (mailing list) is stored in your Google Spreadsheets and is never saved in our database.
Do we do international transfer of personal data?
We will never transfer, sell, make copies, or share any of your data stored by YAMM to third party services or companies.
Can you exercise your right to data portability?
As detailed in our article [DATA STORAGE] What data is stored by YAMM and how is it used?, we do not store any of your customers’ data (mailing lists). So we are not obliged for any data portability requests.
Which Data Transfer mechanisms does YAMM rely on? Standard Clauses or Privacy Shield?
Upon completion of DPA, it is stipulated that: The application of lawful data transfer mechanisms for our customers who wish to transfer personal data to a third country (outside the EEA) in accordance with Article 45 or 46 of the GDPR, relies on entering into Standard Contractual Clauses or offer any alternative transfer solution if requested (for example, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield).
HIPAA and BAA
If you intend to use the Service for any purpose or in any manner involving Protected Health Information, as defined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), it is your responsibility to (a) execute a Business Associate Agreement with Google related to your HIPAA data stored in your Google Drive, and (b) execute a Business Associate Agreement with us related to your HIPAA data stored by you on the Service.
