Data Processing Terms

Last Update: 24.01.2020

The term “Data Protection Legislation” means all applicable laws and regulations relating to the processing of Personal Data and privacy including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Data Protection Act 1998, local data protection laws and any statutory instrument or regulation made thereunder, as from time to time amended, extended, re-enacted or consolidated and the terms “data controller”, “data processor”, “process” and “personal data” shall have the meanings given to those terms in such Data Protection Legislation;

Plesk solely processes data in accordance with the applicable Data Protection Legislation and the Plesk Privacy Policy in its most recent version. In return, Plesk expects its customers and partners to also comply with the applicable Data Protection Legislation at all times.

Plesk acknowledges that in respect of any personal data that it is provided within the course of providing services to its customers and partners apart from data which is purely provided for the purpose of entering into or maintaining an existing contractual relationship, Plesk is a Data Processor to the originator of such data, who is the Data Controller.

Whenever Plesk is requested to process data on behalf of its customers or partners, the Parties are required to sign a Data Processing Agreement, outlining the scope and purposes of such processing, the technical and organizational measures implemented by the Processor as well as the subcontractors engaged in such processing (if applicable).

Processing data on behalf of customers or partners may occur in the course of the provision of technical support services by Plesk, the provision of Professional Services or in respect to personal data entered into the Plesk licensing system by customers and partners (which Plesk recommends keeping free of personal data elements).

To proactively cover this form of processing, all customers and partners are asked to enter into the Plesk Data Processing Agreement which is available and can be executed here.

Please note that certain Plesk Services will not start prior to the signature of the Plesk Data Processing Agreement.
