Cronofy and the UK leaving the EU
Data Location #
At Cronofy, we offer several data hosting options, including Germany and the United States (the full list is in our Data Centers documentation).
The Cronofy Service is fully GDPR compliant irrespective of which data center is chosen. However we recognize that for many users, their data remaining resident within jurisdictional boundaries is important.
Integrators’ can choose which data center they want to use for a given customer. There is no PII (personally identifiable information) transferred between our data centers. This means that, EU end-users’ calendar data can be synced to the Cronofy data center instance in Germany and be assured that the data will not leave the jurisdictional boundary of the EU.
If the Integrator chooses to process that data outside of the jurisdictional boundary of the EU, then that is subject to the appropriate regulations and agreement with those end-users, separate to the processing of the data by Cronofy.
UK and GDPR #
On the 28 June 2021, The European Commission announced that UK provides adequate protection for personal data transferred from the EU to the UK under EU GDPR. The adequency decision means that under GDPR, data can continue to be transferred freely between the EU and the UK.
Cronofy BV #
Cronofy Limited is a UK registered and operating company. Whilst the adequency decision along with Cronofy’s GDPR compliance protects the data of EU citizens, Cronofy has established a company in the Netherlands to provider further assurances in relation to the security of their data.
EU customers have the option to contract with Cronofy BV under Dutch law, and Cronofy BV is the center for GDPR-related activity under the oversight of the Dutch data regulator.
