PUBLIC INFORMATION – Privacy Policy – updated on 31/03/2023

Cloud Privacy Policy

SISQUAL is truly committed to complying with applicable data protection legislation and regulation (including the GDPR), and the contractual terms agreed with its cloud service customers.
Our cloud service is provided on a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, where the customer only accesses and uses our WFM software in the cloud. This Policy only applies to service provision with the SaaS model. Exceptions to this service model and any specific resulting liabilities will be detailed in the contract.
We have appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO) who acts as a point of contact for our customers with regard to the protection of personal data, who can be contacted via this email address:

Cooperation with regard to the rights of data subjects
Our WFM software (as of version 7) includes functionalities that enable our clients to comply with their obligation to facilitate the exercise of data subjects’ rights of access, correct and/or delete personal data concerning them. Please refer to the document “RGPD SISQUAL WFM” for further details and also for information on any situations that the client relies on us to facilitate the exercise of data subject rights.

Purpose of processing
We do not process any personal data stored by you or your end users in the WFM database for any purpose not included in the cloud service agreement, unless you instruct us to do so. We also do not use such personal data for marketing and advertising purposes.

Notification of disclosure
We will notify the service customer, in accordance with any procedure and winding period agreed in contract, of any legally binding request for disclosure of personal data by a law enforcement authority, unless such notification is otherwise prohibited (for example, to preserve the confidentiality of a law enforcement investigation).
We will consult with the service customer where legally permissible before then any disclosure of personal data and will accept any contractually agreed requests for the disclosure of personal data that are authorised by the service customer.
We will make a record of all exposures of personal data to third parties, such as those arising from legal investigations or external audits, including what data was disclosed, to whom, at what time, and the source of the authority for the purpose of the disclosure.

Notification of data breaches
We will promptly notify you in the event of unauthorised access to personal data or unauthorised access to processing equipment or facilities resulting in the loss, disclosure or alteration of personal data, and will provide the information necessary for you to comply with your obligation to notify the relevant authorities. This notification obligation does not extend to a data breach caused by you or a data subject or within the system components for which they are responsible.
In the event that a breach involving personal data has occurred, we will keep a detailed record of the incident, including a description of the data compromised, if known, and any notifications made in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

Return, transfer and deletion
In the event of termination of the contract, after receiving and complying with a request to return personal data to you, transfer it to another cloud provider or to another personal data controller (for example as a result of a merger), we will ensure secure deletion of all data (by us and any of our authorised sub-contractors) from wherever it is stored, including for backup and business continuity purposes, as soon as it is no longer required by the specific customer.
Information on sub-contractors
The use of subcontractors participating in personal data processing is indicated in the contract with the client. We will inform you in good time of any intended changes in this regard so that you have the ability to object to such changes or to terminate the contract. We will inform you of the names of our relevant sub-contractors, the countries in which they may process data and the means by which those sub-contractors are obliged to meet or exceed our own obligations.
We will also inform our customers of the countries where personal data may be stored arising from the use of sub-processors. Any intended changes in this respect will be informed to the customer in good time so that the customer has the ability to object to such changes or to terminate the contract.

Technical and organisational measures
SISQUAL has implemented and continuously improves technical and organisational measures in line with the guidelines and requirements of international standards ISO/IEC 27001, 27002, 27701 and 27018 to ensure that contracted security requirements are met and that personal data is not processed for any purpose regardless of customer instructions, as well as to ensure compliance with relevant security and personal data protection obligations imposed by applicable law and regulations such as the GDPR. We are finalising the certification process according to ISO/IEC 27701 and since 2020 we are certified according to the international standards ISO/IEC 27001, 27018, 20000-1 and ISO 9001.

Awareness, education and training
All our staff are informed of the possible negative consequences on data subjects, on our customers, on SISQUAL and its employees, of violating privacy or security rules and procedures, especially those on the processing of personal data and related assets.

User access management
SISQUAL WFM in the cloud is provided on a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, so the customer is responsible for all aspects of access management for users under their control, providing administrative rights to manage or terminate access.
We recommend that all our customers implement procedures for user registration and deletion to avoid situations where user access control is compromised, such as the corruption or compromise of passwords or other user registration data (e.g. as a result of inadvertent disclosure), in line with the guidelines and requirements of the international standards ISO/IEC 27001 and 27002.

Use of encryption
To enhance the protection of personal data we use HTTPS encryption.

We guarantee backup and restoration of all data residing in the cloud provider.

We conduct independent internal audits and are audited by an accredited certification body every year. These audits verify that information security and privacy are implemented and operated in accordance with our policies and procedures.
