In this role Veeps is there to help you manage and report on your data obligations as a data controller. (Please note that Veeps will charge for such requests). As a data controller, Veeps assumes that that you have clear, intelligible and easy to access consent forms that are using plain language. It must also be easy for your end users to withdraw their consent to use their data. Explicit consent is required only for processing sensitive personal data that has been opted in. However, for non sensitive data, "unambiguous " consent will suffice. For the record, Veeps's data protection officer is the General Manager or COO. If there is a data breach, Veeps will report to the appropriate regulators in Australia (under the Notifiable Data Breaches Scheme) and EU (under the General Data Protection Regulation) to meet the obligations.
