Binding Corporate Rules
„At Avaya we have adopted Binding Corporate Rules as we believe it is the best way to safeguard the personal data which we handle on our behalf and on behalf of our customers.“
Global Privacy Officer
European data protection laws (in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that comes into force on May 25, 2018) contain strict rules that have to be adhered to for international personal data transfers to third countries outside of the European Economic Area which, according to the European Union legislation, do not ensure an adequate level of personal data protection. Reflecting a strong commitment to personal data protection, Avaya has obtained approval from the European Data Protection Authorities for both Controller and Processor Binding Corporate Rules. They are available here. These policies are binding upon all Avaya affiliates and form a robust framework to satisfy data protection requirements, when Avaya handles personal data on its own behalf and on behalf of its customers.
Avaya Binding Corporate Rules (Controller) Policy
The worldwide standards described in the Avaya Binding Corporate Rules (Controller) Policy apply to all Avaya affiliates when processing any personal data as a controller, regardless of where such affiliates are located.
Avaya Binding Corporate Rules (Processor) Policy
The worldwide standards described in the Avaya Binding Corporate Rules (Processor) Policy apply to all Avaya affiliates when processing any personal data as processor, regardless of where such affiliates are located.
Avaya Intra-group Agreement
All Avaya affiliates that process personal data are contractually bound by an Intra-group Agreement to comply with the Binding Corporate Rules. Individuals may obtain a copy of this agreement upon written request to Avaya’s Global Privacy Office (contact details below).
If you have any questions regarding the provisions of the Binding Corporate Rules, your rights under these policies or any other data protection issues, please contact Avaya Global Privacy Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
