Insightrix Communities has two roles regarding the Insightrix Online Community software platform. First is role of the Controller. Insightrix acts as the Controller of Personal Data and/or Personally-Identifiable Information (PII) when it collects Personal Data and/or PII from the Data Subject. As Controller, Insightrix has obligations to the Data Subject regarding the security and privacy of the data Insightrix collects.

Second, is role of the Processor. Insightrix Communities acts as the Processor when clients of Insightrix Communities utilize the Insightrix Online Community software to Collect Personal Data and/or PII from Data Subjects. In these cases, it is the Insightrix Client, acting as Controller, who has obligations to the Data Subject.

Insightrix Clients are encouraged to obtain the consent of Data Subjects before collecting Personal Data and/or PII. The Personal Data and/or Personally-Identifiable Information (PII) disclosed to Insightrix by the Data Subject belong to the Data Subject, and the Data Subject continues to have rights to the Personal Data and/or PII after it is disclosed. Insightrix provides the Data Subject with links to the Insightrix website where information about the ability to control their Personal Data and/or PII can be found. Every Insightrix client using an Insightrix Online Community is encouraged to publish their Data and Security Agreement on the Insightrix Online Community.  

The Controller will be identified to the Data Subject at the time of collection of data. The Insightrix Communities Data Policy explains the practices and policies Insightrix Communities employs to protect the Personal Data and PII of Data Subjects when acting in the role of the Controller or Processor.
