SECTION 1: ORGANISATION ADMINISTRATOR AGREEMENT
3. Data Management
3.1 The monitoring, recording, holding and processing of images of distinguishable individuals constitutes personal data as defined by the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"). This Agreement is intended to ensure that in the use of IRIS Connect it is compliant with the requirements of GDPR, with related legislation and with the CCTV Code of Practice published by the Office of the Information Commissioner.
3.2 While the IRIS Connect system does contain a feature to apply anonymisation filters, you acknowledge that recorded data may still represent personal data (for example if it is triangulated with other sources to identify an individual). Users must use their own judgement to decide if the anonymisation filters have sufficiently obfuscated data subjects before sharing any data.
3.3 If your intended use of the system is likely to collect personal data, you agree to do so in a way which is compliant with the requirements of the GDPR or applicable local regulatory framework. This may include but is not limited to the following:
3.3.1 Documenting your legal basis for processing personal data
3.3.2 Ensuring appropriate transparency and privacy notices
3.3.3 Ensuring robust mechanisms for ensuring ongoing compliance
3.3.4 Providing appropriate channels for appeal
3.3.5 Ensuring appropriate registration with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO)
3.3.6 Adopting a balanced and reasonable policy to managing Subject Access Requests (SARs) and third party disclosures which safeguards the rights of all data subjects and respects the original purpose of the data collection
3.3.7 Enforcing data retention periods in line with your Organisation’s Data retention policy
Further support around legal processing is available on the IRIS Connect website.
3.4 A nominated Organisation Administrator (who must be authorised by your Organisation to make decisions about the management of their data) must manage the Organisation’s compliance with this Agreement. By using the Organisation Administrator Account, the Organisation Administrator agrees the following on behalf of the organisation:
3.5 Management of Content
Your organisation is the data controller for all data uploaded by Users at your organisation to the IRIS Connect system. Your designated Organisation Administrator/s is responsible for making day to day decisions about the management of recorded data, permissioning collaboration groups, data sharing and the monitoring of data recorded by your Organisation.
3.5.1 IRIS Connect provides a content oversight tool which enables Organisation Administrators to review randomised thumbnail images from videos recorded within the organisation. This tool is designed to enable the identification of inappropriate content. You agree to only use this tool for this sole purpose.
3.5.2 You will be responsible for the management and monitoring of data owned by your Organisation. If a User at your organisation flags an issue with a recording or any other content, you agree that you are responsible for investigating the issue and for ensuring that any inappropriate content is removed.

4.2 Management of Users
Unless Users in your organisation are enrolled on a third party provider programme you will be responsible for the creation/amendment/deletion/suspension & management of the User accounts at your Organisation. If a leaving User chooses to transfer any data that they are managing to the Organisation Administrator – you will be bound by the EULA as if that data was your own.
4.2.1 If you use your Organisation Administrator Account to create additional Organisation Administrator Accounts then you confirm that;
126.96.36.199 you understand that the User for that account will be required to accept these same terms;

4.3 Management of Scope:
You are required to monitor User requests for engagement with third party providers and to provide, deny or revoke permission for Users from your organisation to share data and participate in collaborative activities.
4.3.1 third party providers may have additional terms as part of their service subscription. You acknowledge that while you will always retain overall rights to uploaded data, these agreements may include additional conditions. For example third party agreements may introduce new stipulations for the management and ownership of non-video IPRs generated by course participants.
4.3.2 You acknowledge that agreeing to such conditions represents a contract between you and the third party provider and agree to be bound by their terms and monitor User engagement to ensure organisational compliance.
4.3.3 On the IRIS Connect system organisation administrators may authorise the creation of groups which enable Users to share recorded data and collaborate with Users from other organisations. Such “community groups” enable Organisation Administrators to create participation agreements to be agreed by all members of the group.

4.3.5 You acknowledge that if the group is created by your organisation you are responsible for ensuring that inter-organisation sharing is appropriate and proportional and that the participation agreement clearly identifies the following :
18.104.22.168 What data may be shared and in what format

126.96.36.199 Such additional provisions as are necessary to ensure legal processing both within your organisation and collaborating organisations
4.4 Management of Use:

22.214.171.124 To make sure Users are empowered to report to the organisation administrator, content or use that does not meet the above criteria
126.96.36.199 To ensure Users maintain system security and don't share passwords
4.5 Management of Privacy and Disclosures:
The IRIS Connect system incorporates a privacy by design philosophy which on a day-to-day basis gives Users control of the following:

184.108.40.206 Suspected professional misconduct
220.127.116.11 Suspected criminality
4.7 GDPR requires that personal data collected for one purpose cannot be further processed for another, incompatible purpose. If the sound and images recorded for professional development are subsequently used in an investigation, you agree that you will seek advice to be absolutely certain that the circumstances warrant using sound and images for this new purpose.
4.8 The IRIS Connect Web Platform (https://app.irisconnect.com) is a secure service for the selective sharing of recordings. Role based log in and encrypted communications ensure that the recordings are secure and managed within the privacy by design model. Under normal operation, recordings and other data may not be downloaded from the web platform.
4.9 If we receive a formal request from the data controller we will enable resources to be downloaded from the platform. You agree that in these circumstances IRIS Connect will cease to be the data processor and the organisation will be fully responsible for the data and responsible for any damages caused by a breach or security or privacy.

10. Security of Data Processing
10.1 Article 32 GDPR stipulates that, taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, the data controller and data processor shall implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk.
10.2 The data controller shall evaluate the risks to the rights and freedoms of natural persons inherent in the processing and implement measures to mitigate those risks. Depending on their relevance, the measures may include the following:
- Pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data;
- the ability to ensure ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems and services;
- the ability to restore the availability and access to personal data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident;
- a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures for ensuring the security of the processing.
10.3 According to Article 32 GDPR, the data processor shall also – independently from the data controller – evaluate the risks to the rights and freedoms of natural persons inherent in the processing and implement measures to mitigate those risks. To this effect, the data controller shall provide the data processor with all information necessary to identify and evaluate such risks.
10.4 Furthermore, the data processor shall assist the data controller in ensuring compliance with the data controller’s obligations pursuant to Articles 32 GDPR, by inter alia providing the data controller with information concerning the technical and organisational measures already implemented by the data processor pursuant to Article 32 GDPR along with all other information necessary for the data controller to comply with the data controller’s obligation under Article 32 GDPR.
10.5 If subsequently – in the assessment of the data controller – mitigation of the identified risks require further measures to be implemented by the data processor, than those already implemented by the data processor pursuant to Article 32 GDPR, if applicable the data controller shall specify these additional measures to be implemented in Appendix C.

15. Assistance to the Data Controller
15.1 Taking into account the nature of the processing, the data processor shall assist the data controller by appropriate technical and organisational measures, insofar as this is possible, in the fulfilment of the data controller’s obligations to respond to requests for exercising the data subject’s rights laid down in Chapter III GDPR.
15.2 This entails that the data processor shall, insofar as this is possible, assist the data controller in the data controller’s compliance with:
- the right to be informed when collecting personal data from the data subject
- the right to be informed when personal data have not been obtained from the data subject
- the right of access by the data subject
- the right to rectification
- the right to erasure (‘the right to be forgotten’)
- the right to restriction of processing
- notification obligation regarding rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing
- the right to data portability
- the right to object
- the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling
15.3 In addition to the data processor’s obligation to assist the data controller pursuant to Clause 10.4 (Security of Data Processing)., the data processor shall furthermore, taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to the data processor, assist the data controller in ensuring compliance with:
15.3.1 The data controller’s obligation to without undue delay and, where feasible, not later than 72 hours after having become aware of it, notify the personal data breach to the competent supervisory authority, unless the personal data breach is unlikely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons;
15.3.2 the data controller’s obligation to without undue delay communicate the personal data breach to the data subject, when the personal data breach is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons;
15.3.3 the data controller’s obligation to carry out an assessment of the impact of the envisaged processing operations on the protection of personal data (a data protection impact assessment);
15.3.4 the data controller’s obligation to consult the competent supervisory authority, prior to processing where a data protection impact assessment indicates that the processing would result in a high risk in the absence of measures taken by the data controller to mitigate the risk.
15.4 The parties shall define in Appendix C the appropriate technical and organisational measures by which the data processor is required to assist the data controller as well as the scope and the extent of the assistance required. This applies to the obligations foreseen in Clause 15.1. and 15.2.
16. Transfer of Data to Third Countries or International Organisations
16.1 Data Storage and Processing Facilities.
IRIS Connect will store and process Customer Data in compliance with the requirements of the data legislation for your country. For EU customers this means that we will store your data within the EU. For a UK customer, we will continue to store your data in the EU, although we commit to transferring your data to the UK should a change in data protection law require it.
16.2 Data Centre Information.
IRIS Connect Users Amazon AWS storage to store all of Customer Data. Detailed Information about these data centres is available here.
16.3 Location of Customer Data
16.3.1 Customers using the Europe platform (https://europe.irisconnect.com) data will be stored in Dublin, Ireland using Amazon AWS servers
16.3 .2 Customers using the US platform (https://us.irisconnect.com) data will be stored in North Virginia, America using Amazon AWS servers
16.3 .3 Customers using the Australia platform (https://oceania.irisconnect.com) data will be stored in Sydney, Australia using Amazon AWS servers
Further information refer to Appendix B
16.4 Any transfer of personal data to third countries or international organisations by the data processor shall only occur on the basis of documented instructions from the data controller. Such a transfer would always always take place in compliance with Chapter V GDPR for our EU customers and in compliance with Local Regulatory Framework for our customers outside of the EU including the UK.
16.5 In case transfers to third countries or international organisations, which the data processor has not been instructed to perform by the data controller, is required under EU, Member State, or Local Regulatory Framework to which the data processor is subject, the data processor shall inform the data controller of that legal requirement prior to processing unless that law prohibits such information on important grounds of public interest.
16.6 Without documented instructions from the data controller, the data processor therefore cannot within the framework of the Clauses:
- transfer personal data to a data controller or a data processor in a third country or in an international organisation
- transfer the processing of personal data to a sub-processor in a third country
- have the personal data processed in by the data processor in a third country
16.7 The Clauses shall not be confused with standard data protection clauses within the meaning of Article 46(2)(c) and (d) GDPR, and the Clauses cannot be relied upon by the parties as a transfer tool under Chapter V GDPR.
16.8. IRIS Connect staff may access customer data for the sole purpose of fulfilling our obligations to the data processor. All access to data is carefully performed following secure processes and procedures.
17. Use of Sub-processors
17.1 The data processor shall meet the requirements specified in Article 28(2) and (4) GDPR in order to engage another processor (a sub-processor).
17.2 The data processor shall therefore not engage another processor (sub-processor) for the fulfilment of the Clauses without the prior specific written authorisation of the data controller.
17.3 The data processor shall engage sub-processors solely with the specific prior authorisation of the data controller. The data processor shall submit the request for specific authorisation 30 days prior to the engagement of the concerned sub-processor, either by sending an email to the Notification Email Address or via the Admin Console. The list of sub-processors already authorised by the data controller can be found in Appendix B.
17.4 The Customer may object to any new sub-processor by terminating the applicable Agreement immediately upon written notice to IRIS Connect, on condition that the Customer provides such notice within 90 days of being informed of the engagement of the Sub-processor as described in Section 19.7 (Termination of this Agreement by the Customer). This termination right is the Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy if the Customer objects to any new Sub-processor.
17.5 Where the data processor engages a sub-processor for carrying out specific processing activities on behalf of the data controller, the same data protection obligations as set out in the Clauses shall be imposed on that sub-processor by way of a contract or other legal act under EU law or relevant state law, in particular providing sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures in such a manner that the processing will meet the requirements of the Clauses and the GDPR.
17.6 The data processor shall therefore be responsible for requiring that:
17.6.1 the sub-processor at least complies with the obligations to which the data processor is subject pursuant to the Clauses and the GDPR.
17.6.2 the sub-processor only accesses and uses Customer Data to the extent required to perform the obligations subcontracted to it
17.7 A copy of such a sub-processor agreement and subsequent amendments shall – at the data controller’s request – be submitted to the data controller, thereby giving the data controller the opportunity to ensure that the same data protection obligations as set out in the Clauses are imposed on the sub-processor. Clauses on business related issues that do not affect the legal data protection content of the sub-processor agreement, shall not require submission to the data controller.
17.8 The data processor shall agree a third-party beneficiary clause with the sub-processor where – in the event of bankruptcy of the data processor – the data controller shall be a third-party beneficiary to the sub-processor agreement and shall have the right to enforce the agreement against the sub-processor engaged by the data processor, e.g. enabling the data controller to instruct the sub-processor to delete or return the personal data.
17.9 If the sub-processor does not fulfil his data protection obligations, the data processor shall remain fully liable to the data controller as regards the fulfilment of the obligations of the sub-processor. This does not affect the rights of the data subjects under the GDPR – in particular those foreseen in Articles 79 and 82 GDPR – against the data controller and the data processor, including the sub-processor.

The data controller shall on the commencement of the Clauses authorise the use of the abovementioned sub-processors for the processing described for that party. The data processor shall not be entitled – without the data controller’s explicit written authorisation – to engage a sub-processor for a ‘different’ processing than the one which has been agreed upon or have another sub-processor perform the described processing.
Appendix C: Instruction Pertaining to the Use of Personal Data
C.1. The subject of/instruction for the processing
The data processor’s processing of personal data on behalf of the data controller shall be carried out by the data processor performing the following:
The IRIS Connect system enables Users to perform the following actions to their data
- Capture (videos/audio data) via screen capture, call recording, video call recording and videoing via dedicated apps
- Upload captured video data securely
- Store securely
- Clip (via editing feature)
- Comment and tag
- Share to other approved Users accounts via the platform
- Stream (playback videos)
- Other processing include uploading of photos, files, text
- Creation of User accounts (containing name, email address, password and optional tags)
All these instructions are able to be given directly via the IRIS Connect web platform. All standard processing by IRIS Connect is carried out automatically via the system.
C.2. Security of processing
The level of security shall take into account:
The processing involves a large volume of personal data, and therefore a high level of security should be established.”
The data processor shall hereafter be entitled and under obligation to make decisions about the technical and organisational security measures that are to be applied to create the necessary (and agreed) level of data security.
The data processor shall however – in any event and at a minimum – implement the following measures that have been agreed with the data controller:
Hourly backups of database
Save data to multiple availability zones within the region.
Verify the integrity of the data using checksums, automatically repairing any data inconsistencies
Destruction of Data
Customer data (financial) shall be retained in line with local legal frameworks. Customer data (non-financial) shall be securely disposed of and/or transferred to the client following termination of licence.
Data that the client instructs to be destroyed will be stored in 3 months. The back-ups will be stored in 3 months.
There are certain occasions when information needs to be preserved beyond this limit, such as in the following circumstances:
Legal proceedings or a regulatory or similar investigation or obligation to produce information are known to be likely, threatened or actual
A crime is suspected or detected
The highest standard of industry procedure shall be used when decommissioning of storage devices at the end of their useful life.
IRIS Connect must ensure that any data in transit is encrypted using the leading industry practice (TLS 1.2 ). Additionally, data stored on mobile devices shall be encrypted while stored to ensure that data is protected before it enters a secure cloud service.
IRIS Connect shall, in line with GDPR and ISO27001 recommendations, regularly review its organisational and cyber security and has comprehensive information security processes and protocols.
IRIS Connect shall utilise market leading services for data processing and storage.
IRIS Connect shall provide free full support to all customers
The support team shall be available via live chat, email and phone.
Authorisation and access control
IRIS Connect shall ensure that User role separation and permissioning governs access to appropriate data and features.
The IRIS Connect system shall be based on individual User accounts and permissioning. Meaning that the observed User has to agree to a recording taking place before the system allows another User to connect to the camera. The same protection shall exist once a video has been encrypted and uploaded. This means Users are only able to see data that has been explicitly shared with them. By default Users shall be limited to sharing videos with other Users at their organisation.
Users shall have complete control over who has access to their data by deciding to share videos either with individual Users or into a group library. A fundamental principle of the system is that Users will never “lose sight or control” of their video. They shall always be able to see the video and any associated data.
Users retain the right to delete a video or remove sharing privileges at any time.
IRIS Connect staff may access customer data for the sole purpose of fulfilling our obligations to the data processor. All access to data is carefully performed following secure processes and procedures.
Input data that contains personal data
Only the data owners shall have access to the data at input stage. Users are responsible for input into the system, and data can only be input into Users’ specific account with the confidential password and unique Username.
IRIS Connect Equipment does not permanently store files locally.
For full User control and data security, videos shall never be stored on individual devices or local servers. Instead, they shall be encrypted, immediately uploaded to the IRIS connect platform and automatically deleted from the device they were recorded on.
The platform shall be designed to ensure that data remains in the secure, password protected environment. The deletion of the input data by a User shall be managed via an automated process build into the design of the system
Output data that contain personal data
The IRIS Connect system shall be based on individual User accounts and permissioning, where each User has their own personal Username and password for their account in the IRIS connect platform. The observed User has to agree to a recording taking place before the system allows another User to connect to the camera.
The same protections exist once a video has been encrypted and uploaded. This means Users shall only be able to see data that has been explicitly shared with them. Users shall be limited to sharing videos with other Users at their organisation, or collaboration with other organisations if this has been enabled with the permission of the Organisation Administrator. All data shall be securely stored and can only be delivered to the User via an encrypted channel.
The organisation and its Users shall be in complete control of their data, so IRIS connect will only destroy data upon the instruction of the data controller.
If the data is deleted by the owner, deleted data shall be stored for 3 months in case the customer needs to retrieve it. The back-ups shall be stored for 3 months before being securely and automatically destroyed to ensure that it cannot be misused or accessed by unauthorised persons
External communication connections
The IRIS Connect system shall be fully cloud-based and designed to ensure that unauthorised persons cannot gain access to data. IRIS Connect shall ensure any data in transit is encrypted using the leading industry practice (TLS 1.2). Any data removed from our secure system shall be done so under authorisation of the data controller or by authorised personnel for the purpose of data processing.
Control of rejected access attempts
The IRIS Connect platform shall log every account login attempt. The system shall also block repeated login attempts to the same account within a determined time period, by locking the User’s account until this is reviewed by an authorised person.
IRIS Connect shall collect comprehensive User activity logs that are stored for six months.
IRIS Connect shall not permit and physically restrict data processing at home including holding data locally, or printing data locally. All data shall be held securely within the IRIS connect cloud-based system.
Privacy by design
IRIS Connect shall be constructed with privacy-by-design principles at its core.
