General Data Protection Regulation

ChannelApe complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (”GDPR”) with respect to personal data it receives in connection with the ChannelApe Service.

In some situations, ChannelApe may act as a data controller under GDPR. For example, if you apply for a job on the Website, we may be a controller with respect to the personal data you share with us. In these situations, we will only collect and process personal data about you where we have a lawful basis. Lawful basis includes consent (where you have given consent), contract (where processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you), and “legitimate interests.” Where we rely on your consent to process personal data, you have the right to withdraw or decline your consent at any time and where we rely on legitimate interests, you have the right to object. If you have any questions about the lawful bases upon which we collect and use your personal data, please contact us at privacy@channelape.com.

In other situations, ChannelApe may act as a data processor under GDPR. For example, if a company contracts with ChannelApe for access to the ChannelApe Service, and in the course of that relationship shares personal data with ChannelApe, such customer may be the controller with respect to such data, and ChannelApe may be a processor. In such situations, ChannelApe will enter into a data processing agreement with such company governing both parties’ compliance with GDPR.
