Information & Frequently Asked Questions
Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 27, 2016, better known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is designed to enable persons present in the European Union (EU) to better control their personal data. The GDPR identifies two primary parties in scope of its requirements – controllers and processors. Controllers determine the “purpose and means of the processing of personal data.” Processors process personal data “on behalf of the controller.” The GDPR became effective on May 25, 2018.
In the context of the GDPR, Deltek takes on the role of processor in its relationship with its customers. As a result of this role, Deltek has certain general responsibilities as outlined in the GDPR. Keeping customers’ information, including personal data, safe and secure is among our highest priorities and most important responsibilities. Deltek works to implement and maintain strong security and privacy protections that reflect best practices as it relates to the GDPR.
As the result of Brexit, the United Kingdom (UK) is no longer a Member State of the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) as of January 1, 2021. However, before it initiated Brexit proceedings and was still an EU Member State, the UK implemented the Data Protection Act 2018 which fulfilled the GDPR requirement that all Member States implement a “local” version of the GDPR. The obligations under the Data Protection Act 2018 align with the GDPR and this was key to the June 28, 2021 European Commission’s adequacy decision.
The adequacy decision means that the level of protection provided under UK law is “essentially equivalent” to that guaranteed under the GDPR. The UK’s “adequacy” facilitates the exchange of personal data between the EU/EEA and the UK. However, since it was no longer an EU Member State when the European Commission implemented the updated Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) on June 4, 2021, transfers from the UK to other countries cannot avail themselves of the updated SCCs as the lawful cross border data transfer mechanism. The UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office announced that the UK will be drafting and implementing its own version of the SCCs in the near term.
In the interim, Deltek acknowledges the application of the previous version of the SCCs until the ICO approves and implements an alternative mechanism for cross border data transfers from the UK. At that time, Deltek will assess and appropriately implement the relevant lawful data transfer mechanism and update our customers accordingly.
Customers may rest assured that Deltek continues to apply the same safeguards regarding data transfers and securing personal data transferred from the UK as it does for data transfers subject to the GDPR.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) was signed into law on June 28, 2018 and went into effect on January 1, 2020. The CCPA has a tiered applicability based on specific criteria, first to businesses, then to service providers, and lastly to third parties. It also created an array of new consumer privacy rights and governs the sale and sharing of consumers’ personal information.
As with the GDPR, Deltek processes personal information through its products on behalf of its customers, some of whom may be subject to the CCPA. Our customers disclose their consumers’ personal information for the business purpose pursuant to a written contract or agreement entered into with Deltek. In the context of the CCPA, Deltek takes on the role of a service provider in relation to its customers who are governed by the CCPA – as noted in Exhibit 1 to our General Privacy Terms. Deltek is well situated to meet its obligations as a service provider and implemented and maintains processes to ensure the security and privacy features of its products provide the capabilities to enable customers to comply with their obligations under CCPA.
On July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union (“CJEU”) issued a judgment in Case C-311/18 - Data Protection Commissioner v Facebook Ireland Ltd and Maximillian Schrems, commonly referred to publicly as “Schrems II”, declaring that the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework (“Privacy Shield”) is no longer a valid cross-border data transfer mechanism for personal data transferring from the EU to the US. The CJEU noted that personal data transfers from the EU to the US or elsewhere in the world could still take place subject to standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission (the “Standard Contractual Clauses” (SCCs)) as a valid cross-border data transfer mechanism. In consideration of the Schrems II decision, the European Commission worked to update the content, applicability, and scope of the SCCs, releasing the new, modular SCCs on June 4, 2021.
We incorporate and rely upon the SCCs as our approved cross-border data transfer mechanism for any personal data transfers from our EU/EEA-based users to the global network of Deltek affiliates, including Deltek, Inc. in the US. Deltek assessed and implemented the appropriate SCCs module in the Deltek General Privacy Terms, Exhibit 2, to operate as the lawful cross-border data transfer mechanism for all Deltek engagements entered into on or after Sept. 27, 2021. In accordance with the schedule outlined by the European Commission, Deltek will reach out and undertake to transition all existing customers to the new version of the SCCs before December 26, 2022.
