Under the GDPR, Cropdesk can be both a data controller and a data processor. When we are collecting and processing information gathered directly by ourselves from this website, or by the means highlighted above, we are a data controller. In most cases this will apply to our customers, and to those people who have expressed an interest in our Services.


When we are storing and processing data on behalf of our customers using our Services (Cropdesk Production and Cropdesk Recruit) we are a data processor. In this situation we are not collecting the personally identifiable information ourselves, but being provided the information, storing and processing the information on instructions from our customers.



We process your data using the lawful basis under GPDR for processing of Legitimate Interest. This means that through carrying out a balancing test called a Legitimate Interest Assessment (LIA), we have established that we may process your data legally and in full compliance with Data Protection laws.


For our corporate website and offering, an LIA requires that we balance our need to process customers and prospects data, against any potential negative impact on those individuals, their businesses and their data.


For our Services websites and their software, an LIA requires that we balance our need to process the employee/worker personal data that our customers provide us, against the data rights and potential negative impact on those individuals.


In both cases we have established Legitimate Interest is a lawful basis on which we can process. We may, but only if completely necessary, disclose your Personal Information where required to do so by law or in accordance with an order of a court of competent jurisdiction, or if we believe that such action is necessary to comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement or to protect the security or integrity of our Service.


We may employ third party companies and individuals as sub-processors to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analysing how our Service is used. All sub-processors are subject to Non-Disclosure Agreements, and Data Processing Agreements with us, and will not disclose or use any individuals personally identifiable information for any reason other than the instructions they have been given by Cropdesk.



We securely store your data online on a secure Amazon AWS server. We will keep data from Contact Us request forms for 1 year. After this time, your data will be deleted automatically. We will keep data forming part of client accounts for as long as you are a customer and for 6 months following any termination of your account.
