Publisher Terms & Conditions under the GDPR

As you may know, the GDPR is the new EU legislation effective since May 25th 2018. It improves a user’s rights around personal data usage and increases transparency from the organisations handling that data.  

Webgains position under the GDPR is as Data Processor.  

This means that we only process data on behalf of the Data Controller, in this case, the Advertiser who has concluded the customer transaction. It is the Advertiser’s responsibility as Data Controller to safely manage the consent of customers referred by you, the Publisher. 

Webgains responsibility is in securely processing the transactional data. This is to ensure that the Advertiser’s conversion, and the referring Publisher, are recorded and that the sales, commissions and overrides are effectively calculated and reported. 

We have produced clear Terms & Conditions, that reflect this position. They have been available online since March 2018, available to access and receive via the Webgains Publisher Platform, and have now been added to the My Documents area of your account. 

As these are Terms & Conditions of business, you do not need to ‘accept’ them in order for them to take effect, or for you to continue working with Webgains and your Advertiser partners. Your contractual terms also do not change in any way. 

You may find the following links helpful. They include blog posts from Webgains and external posts around the GDPR*. Please, note that we are not responsible for the content of Third Party Websites.

As ever, you can contact us, if you have any questions, at support@webgains.com
