International data transfers

The third parties we have engaged for the above mentioned business process may transfer your personal information to outside of your jurisdiction. Cloutive’s third party processors take all necessary measures to ensure the confidentiality, availability and integrity of personal data and to comply with the GDPR with regards to international data transfers. The international nature of its compliance certifications, as well as far-reaching technical security measures (including but not limited to encryption of the personal data, making the data illegible to an unauthorised recipient) are sufficient to ensure that the data subjects continue to benefit from the fundamental rights they are entitled to under the GDPR.

Where Cloutive transfers data to third countries, it relies on the following legal grounds for international data transfers:

  • An Adequacy Decision in accordance with article 45 of the GDPR
  • In the absence of an Adequacy Decision, appropriate safeguards in the form of Standard Contractual Clauses or Binding Corporate Rules.

In the event that Cloutive is reliant on Standard Contractual Clauses for the legality of its international data transfer, it ensures that the Processor or Subprocessor takes supplementary security measures to safeguard the international data transfer with one or more of the following measures:

  • Encryption;
  • Anonymisation;
  • Pseudonymisation.

Storage and protection of data

Your data is protected by Cloutive and its processors in pursuance to all legal requirements set by the relevant data processing laws. Cloutive has taken technical and organizational security measures to protect your data and requires its data processors to meet the same requirements. Cloutive has signed processing agreements with its processors to ensure an adequate level of data protection.

The following security measures are taken by Cloutive to protect your personal data in the course of the listed business processes:

Organisational security measures


Cloutive staff members are required to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with Cloutive’s guidelines regarding confidentiality, business ethics, appropriate usage, and professional standards. All staff members undergo appropriate background checks prior to hiring and sign a confidentiality agreement outlining their responsibility in protecting customer data.

We continuously train staff members on best security practices, including how to identify social hacks, phishing scams, and hackers.

Access controls

Cloutive maintains your data privacy by allowing only authorized individuals access to information when it is critical to complete tasks for you. Cloutive staff members will not process customer data without authorisation.

Data hosting

As a rule, data is hosted within countries and areas that provide a substantially similar level of protection as data subjects have under the GDPR. To ensure this, we rely on Adequacy Decisions as a legal basis for our international data transfers. In exceptional circumstances, where data is transferred to a country or area not subject to an Adequacy Decision, we rely on Standard Contractual Clauses with the recipient and take supplementary security measures to secure this data transfer, such as anonymisation.

Physical security

The data centres on which personal data is hosted are secured and monitored 24/7 and physical access to facilities is strictly limited to select staff.

Technical security measures

All devices which are used to access personal data for which we are responsible are secured with antivirus software, firewalls, encryption and access management. We regularly update operating systems and software to ensure vulnerabilities cannot be exploited.

We carry out regular vulnerability scanning of our website and have engaged credentialed external auditors to verify the adequacy of our security and privacy measures.
