This includes circumstances where PROCESSOR obtains Personal Data as a result of enabling CONTROLLER to run OfficeMaps Software application (whether hosted on Controllers servers or by Processor); For example, where PROCESSOR facilitates the transmission of emails to Data Subjects at the request of CONTROLLERs, processes Data Subjects’ registrations, or provides reports and tools to enable CONTROLLER and Data Subjects or third parties to gain insights into the location of individuals within an office setting.
