Data Processing Agreement
This agreement is a must have for any business that shares personal data with third parties as part of your business operations.
It is a legal requirement under UK GDPR to have a data processing agreement in place whenever a data controller instructs a data processor to process data on its behalf.
This means that anytime you engage a third party service provider who will have access to, and a requirement to process, your personal data, you should have in place a DPA alongside the Services Agreement with the Service Provider.
Activities that are classed as processing data can be as trivial as sending email to a mailing list, conducting web analytics, or even storing personal data on external servers.
As a Data Controller under UK GDPR, you are responsible not only for compliance with the legislation in respect of your systems and processes, but also the compliance of your Processors. This agreement contains all of the minimum required terms as stipulated in Article 28 of UK GDPR, and outlines in detail how your Processors must handle your personal data to remain compliant with the legislation. If a Personal Data Breach occurs involving your personal data with one of your service providers and you do not have a DPA in place, then you are likely to be investigated and potentially fined by the Information Commissioner's Office.
Get compliant with your Data Processing activities today.

How do you create robust legal documents?
Almost every single entrepreneur feels a little out of their depth with legal documents. That's we created "Drafting Notes" which are included in every document bundle.
You'll find a short PDF of guidance notes within the bundle to support you to edit and personalise your template documents to suit the way you run your business. The guidance notes explain which parts of the template you should amend and which parts you definitely shouldn't alter as those clauses are legally required.
What happens after I purchase?
Following successful purchase of this template you will be emailed with access to Kajabi, which is the online portal where your template will be stored. This means that you'll easily be able to find the documents and access them wherever and whenever you need them, even if you're not on your device.
Is there any guidance with the documents and what format are they in?
The template legal documents are Word documents and there are short PDF 'Drafting Notes' guidance booklets (less than 10 pages) for some of the templates within the bundle.
Before publishing the templates onto your site or using them to send to clients you will need to edit them for your business. The templates have square brackets where you need to enter your company information or chose an option e.g. to include or delete if these do not apply to your site, these sections have been highlighted for ease of use. By the time your template is ready to upload to your site there should be no square brackets remaining.
