Cronofy and Brexit
Cronofy is a UK registered and operating company. The UK government’s decision to leave the European Union means that Cronofy must prepare for, and meet the challenges that this decision will bring.
Data Location #
At Cronofy, we offer two data hosting options, one in the US and another in Germany (More on this 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.
Brexit and Regulations #
The nature of the UK’s departure from the EU may impact how Cronofy is required to process UK citizens’ data. We do not anticipate this affecting how Cronofy is required to process EU citizens’ data. As a processor of EU citizens’ data we will remain bound to the prevailing data regulation required by the EU.
During the transition period, no immediate changes have been required.
In the event the UK leaves the transition period without a deal covering data protection, UK end-users’ data would be subject to the regulations are enacted by the UK government at the time.
Cronofy aims to support processing of UK citizens data according to prevailing regulations.
We will continue to update our policies, processes and agreements to reflect the current state of international data privacy regulations and their applicability to Integrators and End-Users.
