GDPR FAQs

A number of common questions have arisen in regard to GDPR which we’ll try to answer here:

Where is the data stored? Data is stored in the Amazon Web Services cloud platform. At the time of writing this is their sites of North Virginia, US.

Is Data encrypted? Data is transferred to Frontend Robot using HTTPS and encrypted at rest.

How do we delete data? You can delete individual users and all their data from Frontend Robot within the app itself. You can also cancel and delete your entire account by contacting our support team.

Which sub processors do you use? This is covered in more depth in the list of 3rd Party Apps we use here.

Do you have a specific data processing agreement? We don’t have a separate data processing agreement, the specific terms required under Article 28 of the GDPR Act are included in the main Terms and Conditions.

Who is your Data Processing Officer? Frontend Robot isn’t required to have a GDPR Officer. GDPR only requires an officer if the organisation is a public body, conducts large scale systematic monitoring of individuals such as behaviour tracking, or tracks special categories of data such as health.

Can you sign our GDPR / Data Processing Agreement? Unfortunately we can’t sign agreements with individual clients sorry. Being a small dynamic company, it would be pretty much impossible for us to manage separate legal agreements with each client - hence why you’ll find all the GDPR requirements taken care of in our standard Terms and Conditions.

GDPR: Subject Access Requests

We recognise our obligations in assisting customers with regard to data subject access requests.

If you are a Data Subject, Subject Access requests should be sent direct to your employer (the data controller), who in turn will seek assistance from us, Var7 Technologies Ltd (as data processor) in complying with that request. So please contact your employer directly.

If you represent an organisation using Frontend Robot, access to your data is provided via the web and mobile applications. Both you and your users can login and see relevant user data.

The information you find from logging into Frontend Robot reports should be sufficient to allow you to complete the subject access request, but if you have any concerns then please contact support for further assistance.

Updates to this policy

We update this privacy policy from time-to-time, particularly as technology changes and as Frontend Robot develops. We suggest you check back from time to time for the latest version.
