GDPR is the EU regulation that deals with data protection in the EU. It protects the personal data of each EU citizen. “Personal data” means data that allow an individual to be identified (the exact definition is in the GDPR).
The Seats.io system is built to allow our customers to design seating charts, render them across platforms, and connect their ticketing system with our API to manage availability of seats in real time.
Therefore, the system is designed to only keep data related to :
And such other non-personal data as further explained in our documentation.
The normal functioning of Seats.io does not require any personal data (e.g. the identity of a ticket buyer) to be held in the Seats.io databases.
However, it is, of course, possible for our customers to store additional data in our system. Some of these data may contain data that could qualify as personal data under GDPR - but Seats.io is not aware of that, and does not provide any functionality specific to such personal data. If Seats.io customers decide to store personal data within the Seats.io system, then, in such instance, Seats.io should be considered as a kind of “external hard disk” - technically, the data can be stored on our system, but we are not in a position to know whether or not they are personal data.
Since we don’t collect, store or operate on personal data for or on behalf of our customers, we believe the operation of Seats.io for our customers does not fall under the scope of GDPR, not even as a data processor.
However, we apply principles of data security and protection that are industry standard (Heroku and AWS), and are, to the best of our knowledge, in line with the requirements of GDPR.
If some of our customers decide to also store data on our system that are personal data under GDPR, then it is their responsibility to do so. We believe they can, within our system, do all the things that GDPR would require them to do (store, retrieve, destroy etc), without our knowledge or interference - again, the analogy with an external hard disk is appropriate.
Of course, if necessary, we will assist our customers to help them comply with their duties under GDPR if they contact us with such request. If such assistance falls outside of normal support, we may be entitled to charge for such work, depending on the circumstances.
If you have any other questions in this respect, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
