This article explains how you can complete and view the data processing agreement (DPA) with Personio in your account at any time.
According to the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a Data Processing Agreement must be completed, if personal data is to be processed by Personio. To make the contract conclusion process as transparent and uncomplicated as possible, Personio gives you the option of creating and completing the DPA directly in your account. This is in line with GDPR, as the agreement can now also be completed electronically.
Please note that every account administrator has the exclusive right to view the DPA. However, to be legally valid, it can only be completed by a person authorized to represent the company (e.g. management).
Creating a DPA
Go to Settings > Plan & Billing > Data Processing Agreement (DPA). Enter all the data required to create the DPA under Contractual Information and click on Generate.
The contract is created automatically with a Pending status, and stored for you to download in the Data Processing Agreement section.
If you entered incorrect details, you can still delete the DPA at this point and create it again after correcting the details.
If you would like to find out about the Technical and Organizational Measures (TOM) or the Subcontractors commissioned by Personio, please follow the corresponding links in the section Additional parts of the contract.
Completing the DPA
By clicking the respective checkbox and then saving, you agree to the DPA that has been created. The agreement is stored with the time stamp of its completion and the name of the employee who agreed the DPA under Settings > Plan & Billing > Data Processing Agreement (DPA) and it can be viewed here at any time.
