The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new legal framework for data protection. This regulation expands the privacy of EU individuals on how their personal data are collected, processed and maintained.

LightCDN as processor

This usually happens when you (LightCDN customer) use our CDN service. In this case, we are just a channel of information controlled by others.

Data Processing Protocol (DPR)

In some cases, personal data may be collected by visitors who visit the website, depending on the structure of the website. This includes information stored in user agents, referers, or URLs. Once these fields contain personal data, they are defined as data processing orders or committees according to Article 28 of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation, EU Regulation). If this applies to you, the law requires you to complete a Data Processing Agreement (DPA). You can consult our customer service to receive the DPR protocol.

LightCDN as controller

This is usually necessary when we (LightCDN) collect personal data (such as your name, e-mail address, etc.) to provide our services, support, and purchase (please visit the privacy policy page for more details), which is also when we collect personal data of employees. As a controller, we promise the following.

Implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a high level of safety.

Limit personal data only to the extent absolutely necessary.

Use personal data only for collection purposes.

Personal data is stored only in limited time.
