The Solutions Factory Ltd is a “Data Controller” for the very limited amount of data we hold on our employees and our own customers. But we have a much larger responsibility as a “Data Processor” because we manage a much larger set of personal data for our customers on their customers, players, students, community associates and employees.

For this larger set of data we are only considered a data processor and not a data controller because:
1. our customers decide what info they wish to collect, 
2. they collect it themselves (via paper forms or via their web site) 
3. we only process the data for our customers benefit and not for other purposes of our own.

This policy sets out how we seek to protect personal data in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) effective 25th May 2018 and in particular as a “Data Processor”.

The Solutions Factory servers are based in Wales, England and on a cloud based back system provided by a third party Solarwinds MSP.

As part of our service to customers, we register domains on your behalf with 1&1. Please refer to 1&1 terms and conditions.
